Luis Suarez has been tipped to join the Old Lady but has put the move on the back burner to look at other available destinations.
Juventus have been looking to replace Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine does not feature in Andrea Pirlo’s plans and has been told to find employment elsewhere.
Luis Suarez was seen as a possible replacement. The Uruguayan was told by Ronald Koeman that he does not have a future at the Camp Nou.
Suarez’s match with Juventus was seen as the perfect alignment of the stars. It seems that it will not come to fruition as the rumor mill had hoped for.
Spanish daily, Sport has reported that the former Liverpool man is assessing his options and put the move to Allianz Stadium on hold. The forward will decide on his future once he is convinced it is the right choice for him.
This is the last big move of Suarez’s career, who turns 34 in the coming January. It is Atletico Madrid’s interest that has made the Salto native rethink his Italian inclinations.
Alvaro Morata is also linked with a move to Juventus and Diego Simeone would prefer to replace him with Suarez.
For the time being, the 113 time capped international is on the books of Barcelona. He is training with the side and has communicated his desire to take on a withdrawn first-team role.
However, with the Catalans looks to get rid of him, an agreeable parting of ways is being sought.
