His career so far
Denis Suárez will wear the Barça shirt once more, just as he did during the 2013/14 season for Barça B. The 22 year old is a talented midfielder who comes to FC Barcelona to strengthen the squad in the middle of the park and is the first signing of the season 2016/17 for the Club.
Suárez returns after spells at Sevilla and Villarreal. For Barça B he scored 7 goals and recorded 11 assists in his 36 matches. That brought him to the attention of the Andalusians and his spell there allowed the man from Galicia to develop as a player, also adding the Europa League title to his list of honours.
The following season Suárez signed for Villarreal with the Club maintaining the buy out that they have now exercised. At Villarreal he played 48 times, 36 as a starter, scoring five goals and recording 11 assists.
