Ronald Koeman hopes to start a new era with the displacement of a number of players at the Nou Camp.
Ronald Koeman has reportedly told a number of his players including Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, Umtiti, and Vidal that their services will no longer be needed in Barcelona.
The Dutchman is overhauling the entire Barcelona team having taken over from Quique Setien after the former had a disastrous season with the Spanish giants.
For the first time in 12 years, the Catalans failed to win a single trophy and were humiliated by Bayern Munich in the Quater finals of the champions league in a 10 goal trailer that saw them lose 8-2 to the eventual champions.
Koeman informed suarez that its time to leave.

According to Daily Mirror, Ronald Koeman has informed Luis Suarez, Umtiti, Rakitic, and Vidal to find new clubs this summer because they won’t be part of his plan for next season.
Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu had earlier stated that Barcelona are willing to let go of many players with only seven of the club’s first-team squad assured of a place for next season.
It was also reported by another UK media outlet that Koeman put a call to the Uruguayan striker Suarez informing him his deal with the club will be terminated this summer.
