Luis Suarez is looking for a new home and it could be with Juventus. The 33-year-old striker has reportedly contacted Gheuba chief Pavel Nedved about a potential transfer. If successful, it suggests a possible move alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
When Ronaldo played for Real Madrid, he regularly locked the horns with Barcelona trio Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar. But the duo could line up for Andrea Pirlo’s side next season alongside Paulo Dybala.
Considering Gonzalo Higuain could leave the Old Lady, Suarez could be a good choice for the club. According to Mundo Deportivo, talks between Suarez and Nedved are already underway. The talks are believed to have gone well and Ronaldo may soon have a new attacking partner.
For those who have followed Ronaldo and Suarez’s careers, it would be an odd partnership considering the two had a fierce rivalry in Spain. For his part, Suarez had the opportunity to partner with greats like Lionel Messi and Neymar.
It would be a smart move for Juventus, who also have their eyes on other players like Roma’s Edin Dzeko. Unfortunately, the club are not ready to let him go unless they find a suitable replacement.
Suarez was in surplus and new manager Ronald Koeman told him he would be hired this summer. Barca are undergoing a major overhaul, the Uruguayan being named as one of the unfortunate victims.
Suarez still has a year on his current contract but has been personally briefed by phone by Koeman about his future. Other players believed to be on the verge of exiting include Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets.
However, the big news may not be about Suarez or the others. The most watched man is Lionel Messi who wants to leave Barcelona. But the Argentine’s decision goes beyond Koeman succeeding Quique Setien.
