Juventus are looking into securing Barcelona outcast, Luis Suarez, in an unthinkable move to partner him with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Juventus believe Suarez to be a great option, as a reliable striker, as they look to make their attacking lineup even stronger for next season.
The Uruguayan international has become an outcast in Barcelona after the newly appointed coach, Ronald Koeman, informed him that his services are no longer needed as the Dutch coach does not have him in his plans for next season.
Goal reports that besides Ajax and Inter Miami, Suarez has also been offered to the Italian champions as the new coach, Andrea Pirlo, is in the market for an experienced striker after parting ways with Gonzalo Higuain.
The 33-year-old striker has never experienced the Italian league, and Serie A could be the perfect challenge for the aging striker before he retires. He has already found success in the Dutch league, Eredivisie with Ajax, Premier League with Liverpool, and La Liga with Barcelona.
Despite having a year remaining in his existing contract, reports claim that Koeman has informed the club to make Suarez available in the transfer market as he does not look to use him. Reports had claimed earlier that the board were planning to terminate his contract, allowing him to leave for free to the club of his choosing.
Suarez is reportedly upset with the treatment he has received as the striker was never informed about the club’s desire of wanting him out of Camp Nou, and he found out after new outlets had already reported it.
“There is talk of some names [departing] that the president gave, of changes that can be made, but nobody told me that they want to do without me,” Suarez told El Pais in an interview.
“If this is the desire of the club, it would be good if the person in charge speaks directly to me. I’ve been at Barca for six years, enough time to say what they think. It’s better to tell me if I am one of the ones that they want out. It remains to be seen.
Lionel Messi has also been left upset with the way the current management is running the club with the Argentine international officially handing in his desire to leave this transfer window. While Leo’s future remains uncertain, Suarez could potentially move to Turin to unite with Messi’s greatest rival, Cristiano Ronaldo.
