Luis Suarez could not join Juventus and the Uruguayan stayed at Barcelona when the Catalonia club had difficulty in the Depay deal from Lyon.
According to Italian press, Luis Suarez and Juventus reached personal agreements. The 33-year-old striker agreed to sign a 3-year contract. However, Suarez lost his chance to join the Turin club.
The reason is that Juventus has registered a full capacity for foreign players. So, if you want to join the Juventus Arena, Luis Suarez must have Italian nationality. However, the naturalization of the Uruguayan striker was too time consuming, so the deal fell apart.
The failure of this deal makes Juventus feel regretful. Coach Pirlo considers Luis Suarez the ideal attack plan beside Dybala and C.Ronaldo, especially they recently sold Higuain to Inter Miami.
Failure in the Luis Suarez deal, Juventus is planning to turn to Edin Dzeko. The former Man City player has no place in AS Roma and this deal may soon be completed by coach Pirlo.
According to the Uruguayan press, coach Ronald Koeman will soon have a conversation with Suarez to inform the striker about his future plans. If the former Liverpool player does not leave, the Dutch strategist will trust him.
This is in stark contrast to the situation nearly a month ago, when coach Koeman announced Suarez was no longer part of Barcelona’s plan. However, after having trouble in the Depay deal (the price is too high up to 28 million pounds), maybe Barca will change attitude with Suarez.
Technical director Ramon Planes of Barcelona said: “Luis Suarez has been an important player for Barca for many years. We must pay respect to the players who have made a great contribution to the club. However, Barca is in the process of changing.
We have a coach and new ideas. We have to respect the players’ contracts, but from now until October 5, many things could happen. We have been working for many months to improve the team, find players for the new phase of the club, combining experience with quality.
Not everyone can play at such a big club. We are looking for a striker, and it does not depend on Suarez leaving. We respect those who are here, but Barca always aspires to have the best.
Yesterday, Miralem Pjanic officially launched Barcelona. This player will take over the number 8 shirt that Andres Iniesta left and will compete for a place in the middle of the field alongside Sergio Busquets, De Jong.
“I met Messi two days ago,” said Pjanic during the launch. During my career, I have been fortunate enough to play with great players like Cristiano Ronaldo or Francesco Totti. They are my role models. With Messi, I will share the dressing room with the alien.
I need time to adjust to Barcelona. I have to know my new teammates, I have to know the club play. Barca used to have a trio of midfielders Busquets – Iniesta – Xavi. It is difficult to reproduce the image of the trio. Barca always focus on the midfield and they want me to adapt quickly “.
