Barcelona Directors Threaten To Quit If Club Sell Luis Suarez To Atletico Madrid. Barcelona’s unstable summer does not seem to be easing anytime soon as reports have emerged that some of the club’s directors have threatened to quit over the decision to let Luis Suarez join Atletico Madrid.
However, the Spanish giants have been in a state of crisis this summer amid the coronavirus crisis crippling their finances. Also, they have gone through a huge fall-out from the Lionel Messi transfer saga.
Meanwhile in all this Luis Suarez had been given the green light to leave but according to Onda Cero, there has been a significant split in the Barcelona boardroom over the club’s choice to allow the experienced striker to join their La Liga rivals.
Although it has been reported that there is no transfer fee directly involved from the move, Atletico would have to pay Barcelona £1.8m every time they reach the Champions League while Suarez is at the club.
