Italian media claim Luis Suarez ‘has already agreed personal terms with Juventus’ as he looks set to leave Lionel Messi to team up with Cristiano Ronaldo… and ex-Liverpool star is in line for £22m pay-off from Barcelona, Daily Mail reports.
Juventus have earmarked Luis Suarez as the world-class player to spearhead their attack.
The Uruguayan will turn 34 this season and has been told by new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman that he won’t be in his plans.
Both Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport report that Suarez and Juventus have reached an agreement over the switch.
It is understood that he will take advantage of the Italian government’s growth decree that will allow the forward to save the club almost 50 per cent of his wages in two years.
The decree is a package of measures aimed at returning to economic stability after the country dipped into a recession due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Measures in place would help lighten the financial load of signing Suarez.
The combative forward has reportedly already contacted club chief Pavel Nedved over a transfer after Koeman told him in a short phonecall that he was no longer needed.
