Luis Suarez has been given his choices to leave Barcelona after he spent six seasons in the club. Barcelona’s new manager Ronald Koeman has also told some of the Barcelona first team players that they are not part of his plan as Barca’s coach. He also told Lionel Messi that his favors in Barcelona are over. This has pushed Lionel Messi to make his decision of leaving the club.
Meanwhile, the departure of Suarez has angered some fans who think he is still one of the best players in Europe. But according to Marca, Barcelona’s loss will be an advantage to other clubs as Suarez draws close to signing a new contract with Juventus.
The Uruguayan has had links with former clubs Ajax and Liverpool. But none except Juventus has won the race to sign the striker if the deal is finalized by Barcelona.
According to reports from Marca, personal terms have been agreed between Suarez and Juventus after meeting for the second time. Luis Suarez spoke to Juve’s vice president, Pavel Nedved. The transfer will see Messi play alongside Christiano Ronaldo after spending six seasons with Lionel Messi.
Juventus are looking forward to signing another striker. And Gonzalo Higuain is expected to leave the club this summer as he heads to MLS side Inter Miami.

The Uruguayan has reportedly agreed to a salary with Juventus that worth£9m-a-year after tax.
Meanwhile, Juventus also has thought of signing Roma striker Eden Dzeko. However, they would have to pay a transfer fee that estimates 10 million euros for the Bosnian and his wage. That is a price they don’t have to pay for Suarez who would leave Barcelona on a free transfer.
The transfer will likely be a fantastic one for Juventus. With the 33-year-old Suarez merging with Ronaldo and Dybala. the front line will be almost unstoppable. But Barca’s Manager has seen Suarez as a surplus requirement for the club.
