Barcelona are ready to make Luis Suarez watch the entire 2020/2021 season from the stands, if he does not leave the club, according to Sport.
Suarez has been told by new manager, Ronald Koeman, that he is surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou.
The 33-year-old has been in discussions with Juventus over a move, but the negotiations have slowed down in recent days.
Suarez has been training away from the first team as Koeman continues to freeze him out.
He was left out of Barca’s pre-season 3-1 win over Gimnastic on Saturday.
The LaLiga giants have been in talks with Suarez and his representatives over the termination of his contract, which has one year to go before it expires next summer.
Despite his transfer saga with Koeman, Suarez has carried on training with the team, with the forward keen on remaining professional until the last minute of being a Barcelona player.
