Liverpool Confirm Luis Suárez’s £75m Move to Barcelona Pending Medical

THE GUARDIAN – Liverpool will aim to prove that no one, not even Luis Suárez, is indispensable after agreeing to sell the Uruguay striker to Barcelona for around £75m on Friday.

The only potential barrier to the deal’s completion is the need for the striker to pass a medical but that, as with the finalisation of personal terms, is expected to be a mere formality. By early next week Suárez, who has already passed a preliminary examination from a Barça club doctor in Montevideo, should be rubberstamped in a five-year deal as part of a formidable attack also featuring Lionel Messi and Neymar.

As Suárez is serving a four-month ban for biting Italy’s Giorgio Cheillini at the World Cup Barcelona contemplated a logistical conundrum regarding the “unveiling” of a man who scored 31 Premier League goals for Liverpool last season. Normally they introduce new recruits to the media and their fans at the Camp Nou yet Suárez’s ban precludes him from entering any football stadium. Accordingly he is now scheduled to be paraded at Auditorium 1899, a nearby club conference room, on Wednesday.
