Watford’s decision to not extend Luis Suárez’s loan deal until the end of the season has resulted in a lot of frustration and anger at Real Zaragoza.
The Colombian has been instrumental in helping the La Liga 2 side make it to the playoffs, scoring 19 goals and registering six assists in 38 matches.
However, Zaragoza will have to do without their top scorer for the two playoff matches against Elche.
The striker has been attracting a lot of interest from clubs across Europe and reports have only increased after the Hornets were relegated from the Premier League.
It’s not clear if Udinese are among the suitors for the 22-year-old, but the Serie A club’s sporting director Pierpaolo Marino has ruled out his side’s chances of signing the South American.
Marino also explained the reason during an interview with Colombian radio station El VBar.
“I think Luis Suárez will not come to Udinese because he is a great player, with a very good future and Watford will want to have him for next season,” Marino said.
It’s unclear if Suárez would want to play in the Championship, especially when he continues to attract interest from top tier European clubs.
Villarreal, Real Betis and Real Sociedad are some of the clubs reportedly interested in the frontman.
