Signing a replacement for Luis Suarez is on the top of Barcelona’s agenda and now the club as well as Lionel Messi have agreed on a cheap option.

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has started declining this season. In spite of having some lethal spells in front of goal, the overall season must not be considered to be a great one from his point of view and after five years of magnificent goal scoring prowess, the Uruguay international’s time at his prime may very well have come to an end.

The Catalans and in particular, Luis Suarez himself, have conceded to the fact that he needs a replacement and signing one is on the agenda for the summer. Luka Jovic of Eintracht Frankfurt is an option, but at 70 million euros, the club thinks that the Serbia international is very expensive and Antoine Griezmann, worth 120 million euros is not in the good books of Barcelona’s seniors.

As claimed by Fox Sports, the Spanish champions will now consider moving for Girona striker Christhian Stuani during the summer. The side based out of Costa Brava, Catalonia, has now been relegated from La Liga Santander and with the quality that Stuani possesses it is hard to see him follow suit with his current club into Spain’s second division.

The Blaugrana will happily pay a cheap price of 7 million euros for the compatriot of Luis Suarez. The 32-year-old has scored 18 goals in 32 appearances for the 18th placed side from Spain’s side this summer. Moreover, he will be ready to play a substitutes role at 32 especially with Lionel Messi wanting Suarez to continue as a first-choice striker despite his ageing.

Antoine Griezmann would be a much better option for the Catalans to chase because of his age factor and goal scoring prowess. With the France international set to leave Atletico Madrid, 120 million euros is a reasonable price tag for him. However, if Messi is adamant about playing with Luis Suarez, then signing Griezmann and playing him on the wing is an absolute waste.
