Luis Suarez's agent Alejandro Balbi believes his client and Lionel Messi will have an influence over each other in determining their next career moves.
Late last week, Suarez was told by new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman that he had not future at the club and that his contract would likely be terminated.
Then, on Tuesday of this week, Messi informed the club via fax of his desire to leave, with the treatment of his friend Suarez adding to his already long list of problems with the Barca board.
The pair have developed a bond both on and off the pitch, with them regularly holidaying together with their families.
Balbi thinks their close friendship could play a part in where each player decides to go, should they ultimately move on from the Camp Nou.
"Messi's future will have an influence on Suarez's because they are best friends, they get along on and off the pitch," Suarez's agent told TyC Sports.
"There is a lot of brotherly love between Messi and Suarez, they are inseparable, always together."
Turning attention to his client, Balbi has revealed that Suarez has had plenty of offers since the news broke about his exit.
"The offers are raining down from all sides because he is a great goalscorer in world football," he added.
"There is a backdrop [to Suarez being told to leave] which is not wholly about sport. His family lives in Barcelona and this is not the typical case of most players who can up and leave. He will have to work it out with the family."
Messi currently has a €700m release clause in his current contract, but is arguing that a previous clause allowing him to leave for free still stands due to the season being extended due to the pandemic.
