According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are hoping to use Luis Suarez and some money to sign Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.

Ronald Koeman is looking to breathe fresh life into his Barcelona squad but his budget is limited.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Van de Beek is a target for Barcelona and the club plan to use Ajax’s interest in Luis Suarez to temp the Dutch club into selling.

Barcelona is reportedly planning a €20 million bid plus Suarez for Van de Beek. The only issue could be Suarez, who is not looking to leave the Nou Camp, despite the club’s willingness to sell him.

Koeman also plans to raise more money by selling off midfielders Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic.

Van de Beek was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid earlier this summer, but they could not afford the €60 million fee. Manchester United is another club following the Dutch international.
