El Mundo Deportivo: Barcelona’s €65m move for Luis Suarez is at an “advanced stage”
- June 20, 2014
Just hours after Luis Suarez destroyed England single handedly in one of the games of his life, Catalan paper El Mundo Deportivo have dropped a transfer bombshell.
Luis Suarez features on the El Mundo Deportivo front page today with the claim that the Liverpool striker’s move to Barcelona is at an “advanced stage”.
They claim that Suarez is Barcelona’s main target this summer, just as Neymar was a year ago.
The suggestion that talks are at an “advanced stage” is mentioned throughout El Mundo Deportivo’s article on the supposed transfer.
El Mundo suggest that Suarez’s contract renewal last December comes with a release clause of 85 million euros, but is significantly lower for foreign clubs, to the tune of around 65 million euros.
Barcelona are keen to form the best trio of strikers in world football, pairing Lionel Messi with Neymar and Suarez, according to El Mundo Deportivo.
Liverpool supporters will no doubt scoff at these rumours, rightly pointing to the fact that Suarez appears happy on Merseyside and will be playing Champions League football next season.
El Mundo add three factors why they think the Suarez move could happen. Firstly as the Uruguayan is keen to compete for the biggest trophies possible.
And, secondly, after last night they suggest that Suarez will have a hard time coming back to England after all but dumping the Three Lions out the World Cup.
And, finally, Suarez has family in Barcelona…
We suspect that after his heroics for Uruguay, Barcelona may have to pay double 65 million euros to secure Suarez and it is majorly doubtful that he does want to leave Liverpool!
