FC Barcelona has been in the spotlight for quite some time with all the changes happening at the club. From losing 8-2 against Bayern Munich to the news of Messi leaving, they have drawn a lot of attention towards themselves this summer. Amidst all this, we bring to you the latest news about them. The Spanish club’s star striker Luis Suarez is making a move to the Italian giants Juventus. Ever since their disastrous defeat against Bayern Munich, the club has been restructuring the entire team. With that, they put up all their players on sale excluding 7 players. Unfortunately, Suarez was not one of them.
The Blaugranas have been telling Suarez to find his next destination as their new boss Ronald Koeman is looking to reshape the club. Earlier, the striker was being linked with his former clubs Ajax and Liverpool. But, the two clubs could not seem to cope up with his wages and signing amount. With a year still left in Barcelona, if Barcelona really wants to sell him, they will have to pay him $12 million to nullify his contract. Moreover, Suarez had earlier said that he still had a lot to deliver to the club. But, this news comes as shock for the Catalan fans. He was also seen training with the team where Ronald Koeman was heading his first training session.
How will the move help Luis Suarez?
The Uruguayan’s move to Juventus will see him play with Cristiano Ronaldo. Until now, only 12 players have played with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano and Ronaldo. Suarez could be the 13th most fortunate person in this world to do so. Juventus’ contract with their striker Gonzalo Higuain expired this season and he will be moving to David Beckham’s MLS side Inter Miami. As the striker position is vacant, Juventus wanted to land a prime striker so they can compete in the UEFA Champions League. It seems like Luis Suarez might be the right choice after all. It is also being said that the Uruguayan and Juventus have already agreed to personal terms. Earlier, reports came out that Ronaldo wanted Juventus to sign Ciro Immobile to replace Higuain.
Are Barcelona in danger after he leaves?
With Suarez and Messi keen on leaving the Catalan club, things will be getting difficult for them. Along with them, Rakitic has also left the club as he joined his former club Sevilla recently. They will not have any player to guide the newly built team. Ronald Koeman will have to face some difficulties with three of their finest players leaving. It will be interesting to see how Barcelona cope up with this as they start their season n 27th September, 2020 against Villareal. They will have their eyes set on the leagues as well as all the other trophies after the trophyless season that they went through recently. It will also be fascinating to see Suarez play in Serie A with him having agreed to the personal terms with the Italian giants.
