It should come as no surprise that you’ll not be getting a straight answer from Suarez regarding the uncertainty of his next step. He claimed that there was a lot of “fake news”. And that his future with Barcalona is still up in the air. But we also know that his people are in discussions with Juventus. Barcas new coach, Ronald Koeman has said he’s free to go. We can imagine such a move didn’t help Messi’s strained relationship with the Blaugrana.
There’s a fog of gossip surrounding Suarez’s next move, with Ajax and Inter Miami being mentioned. But the word on the ground is that he’s very close to signing with the Seies A champions. And that the transfer fee has already been agreed. There’s talk of a three year contract worth around €10 million (£9m/$12m) per season with Juventus. He’s also apparently due to take an Italian language exam. This will allow him to gain an Italian passport to help his move to Turin.
We guess that the Uruguay international likes to troll. He’s constantly posting cryptic messages on his Instagram story, even as he continues to train with Barcelona. But whatever the gossip, you have to admit that he’s hell of a player. He’s presently third on a list of all time Barca goalscorers (Messi is first and Cesar second). He has four La Ligas, four Copas del Reys and a Champions League under his belt since making the move to Catalonia from Liverpool in 2014.
Right now the 33 year old in his his final year of his Camp Nou contract. Providing that he features in at least 60% of matches, then it’ll automatically renew. Mind you, Juventus are in dire need of a forward once Gonzalo Higuain leaves. But whether Suarez will make the move to Turin is still up in the air. More especially according to his own Instagram. There’s always an inkling that he’d be perfectly happy to remain at Camp Nou.
