Tuchel confirms PSG tried to sign Ex Barcelona striker Luis Suarez

After becoming Barcelona head coach on 19 August 2020, Ronald Koeman informed Suárez he was no longer wanted, and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu had also left him off a list of players he considered not for sale in the aftermath of the 8–2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League earlier that month.

Thomas Tuchel has admitted that Paris Saint-Germain were interested in signing Luis Suarez last summer.

The veteran striker was told he was allowed to leave Barcelona during the transfer window after Ronald Koeman's arrival.

Former PSG boss Tuchel has confirmed the club's attempts to sign the Uruguayan, who eventually moved to Atletico Madrid.

The German coach faces Suarez when Chelsea take on Atletico in the Champions League on Tuesday in Bucharest.

On 23 September 2020, after failing to join Juventus and amid accusations that he cheated his way to obtain an Italian citizenship, Suárez signed a two-year contract with Atlético Madrid.
