But he is far from alone, with every player at the club except Lionel Messi and goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen said to be available for rivals to sign.

Not that former Liverpool hero Suarez, 33, looked too worried about that while on a stroll with his family near his Barcelona home.

The Uruguay striker, who is contracted to Barca until 2021, chose not to wear a mask as he ventured out with wife Sofia.

Joining them were two of their three children, Benjamin, six, and one-year-old baby Lautaro.

Suarez has been recovering since having knee surgery in January.

He had been suffering from pain for months and was said to be getting through training and games with the help of injections.

Suarez last played in the 3-2 Spanish Super Cup defeat to Atletico Madrid on January 9.

And rumours have been rife that that could have been the last time we will see him play in a Barca top.

Former Uruguay international Sebastian Abreu said he could have signed Suarez had he taken over at Nacional.

Suarez's first club were without a manager late last year when Alvaro Gutierrez quit, with Abreu – who spent three spells there as a player – adamant he was a leading candidate to get the job.

Goal say Abreu said: "I had full, real chances [of being Nacional coach].

"And when in those days, after December 18, Luis was about to come, I said to him: 'Look, Lucho, it is not anything concrete, but there may be a possibility … What's your situation? What do we do?'

"[Abreu claims Suarez replied:] 'If you get to be [coach], let me talk to Sofia, talk about the family. I always told you that if you were a coach I could come back'.

"Going back to Nacional was something that motivated Luis, it was a nice challenge."
