DENIS SUAREZ has admitted his future at Barcelona is uncertain – potentially paving the way for a move to Chelsea.
The Barca midfielder, 24, is yet to play a single minute of LaLiga football this season and could be looking for a move away to get game time again.

He did manage the full 90 minutes in the Copa del Rey against Leonesa last night, scoring twice in the 4-1 win.
And the Spaniard will be desperate Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde trusts him in a league game soon or else he could try and force a move away.
Speaking to Spanish media last night, Suarez said: "I work to play and I'm not having minutes, if I do not play … we'll see.
"I want to play, today I was able to enjoy and I felt good, comfortable, I want to play as much as possible.

"Valverde said that today was a test for the less usual, we will see on Saturday if I have approved.
"I am happy for the match, for the goals and for the people who play less.
"I am also happy for those of La Masia that have made their debut, I know what is coming from below and I am very happy for them."
Other than the two legs against Leonesa, Suarez's only other appearance this season was a ten-minute cameo in the 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League last week.
Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea are understood to be ready to make a move for the former Spain Under-21 star who made his senior international debut in 2016 – a move which could see Willian go in the opposite direction.
