With FIFA ruling out an unveiling, this may be as close as Luis Suarez gets to being presented to Barcelona fans.
The Catalan media report that the former Liverpool striker arrived in Barcelona last night, just after 21:00 on a flight from Montevideo.
Suarez was joined by his wife Sofia and young children Delfina and Benjamin.
There were Barcelona fans waiting at El Prat for Suarez but he was whisked out a side door, presumably so as not to contravene any of FIFA’s rules.
The Uruguay striker was then driven into Barcelona by agent Pere Guardiola, brother of Bayern Munich coach Pep.
