"Messi is a special player that always moves forward"
Luis Suárez appeared today before the media in a press conference. The Uruguayan player talked about Messi, about whom he assured he is recovering after losing the Copa América. He aslo didn't want to rule out the possibility that the Argentine is being persecuted with all the cases of the summer.
Suárez, who didn't appear very preoccupied about his renewal and who assured it is good that a fourth forward comes, talked about various players:
"One more year, we have the obligation to win every title we can."
"Everybody knows it was difficult for him to lose the Copa América, but he is a special player that always moves forward."
"I can't imagine Messi not playing with Argentina, and I hope it doesn't go that way."
"There could be some sort of persecution on Messi for everything that has happened, but has a teammate I try to entertain him and not talk about that subject with him."

"Welcome to whichever forward comes, because he will help. It is good to have turnovers."
"He's a great player. He would bring great things here."
"We would be thrilled to see Mascherano renew."
"He will help us and bring a lot to the team. We are happy to have players like that."
"People are talking about my renewal, but for now they haven't told me anything; I'm not preoccupied. There are more important things now."
"We know Luis Enrique very well. We understand quickly his messages. He helps us and made us improve. It is a pleasure to start the third season with him."
"I have completely recovered from the injury."
"I think Bravo is doing good. We are in a club about which there are always exit rumours that are not true in the end."
"Favourite to win the Ballon d'Or? No, me no [laughs]."
"With Alves leaving, Barça have lost a lot; because of his qualities and for the connection he had with Messi. He has a great character, his ambition is contagious... We will miss him."
