Suarez agrees deal with Juventus – Balague

Suarez agrees deal with Juventus – Balague

Luis Suarez won the La Liga title in four of his first five seasons with Barcelona

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez has agreed to join Juventus, reports BBC Radio 5 Live’s Guillem Balague.

Suarez will move to Serie A on a free transfer – or perhaps a nominal fee – if he can negotiate his release from the Spanish giants.

The Uruguayan has a year to run on a contract he signed in 2016 but if he played 60% of games during 2020-21 it would be extended for another year.

Suarez would be happy to be paid off with one season’s wages.

Italian media reported on Friday that he would also need to pass a citizenship test to play in Italy – he has a Uruguayan passport and played in Spain thanks to his wife’s Italian passport, enough to be considered European in La Liga.

The 33-year-old’s move has no bearing on the future of his friend Lionel Messi.

Suarez and Messi – along with their families – are close but Messi’s decision over whether to stay at the Nou Camp will not be affected by his team-mate’s move.

Suarez’s switch to Turin will see him line up along Messi’s great rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
