Former Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has offered Carles Alena some advice on his future with the Catalan giants.

Alena has only managed 45 minutes of first-team action this season and has been linked with a move away from the club in the January transfer window.

Denis spent the second half of last season on loan at Arsenal before sealing a move to Celta Vigo in the summer and offered his thoughts on Alena’s situation.

”There are a lot of talented players, so he will have to make his decision, whether he gambles on staying or looks for a way out with a transfer or loan.

”I know what it’s like to go a whole season without playing and it’s not a good feeling. Every player wants to play and I know what it’s like to do that every weekend, even if things aren’t going right it makes me happy.

”He is the one who has to decide but I would tell him that Barca is not everything in football, he could leave, do great and then come back. Or maybe the opposite, he could stay, start playing and win his place. You never know.”

Denis has been an ever-present for Celta this season and will return to Camp Nou on Saturday for their La Liga clash with Barcelona. There will be no Rafinha for Celta though, he’s out injured again.
