Juventus In Talks With Suarez’s Agent Over £25.6m Summer Move?
Juventus have renewed their interest in Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and are already in talks with the players representatives over a possible switch to Turin
Despite the transfer window being closed there is still plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Juventus are once again linked with Luis Suarez.
Juventus have renewed their interest in Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and are thought to be in talks with the players representatives over a possible summer switch to Turin, according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims the Italian champions were interested in Suarez last summer but Liverpool were able to resist their attempts and persuade the forward to sign a new contract until 2018.
Suarez has been in sensational form this season and currently tops the Premier League goal-scoring charts with 22 goals in 29 games so far this campaign. However, his strikes haven’t been enough to see the Reds put up a serious challenge for a top-four finish with the Merseysiders currently seventh – a full nine points off fourth-placed Tottenham.
The Mail claim Juve have now reignited their interest with manager Antonio Conte seeing Suarez as the perfect strike partner for Fernando Llorente and the Italians are understood to have opened talks with the Uruguayan’s agent over a potential €30m (£25.6m) switch to Serie A this summer.

I don’t know what’s funnier; that the Daily Mail think Suarez has opened talks with Juventus or that they value him at just £25.6m?! The way he’s playing this season that might just about buy his left leg, and that’s IF Liverpool want to sell, which they don’t, so I wouldn’t be getting too worried just yet Liverpool fans.
The only way I see Suarez leaving this summer is if the player kicks up a fuss and demands a move, which doesn’t seem likely at this point. No doubt he’ll want Champions League football soon, but after signing a new long-term contract last summer, I really don’t expect him to leave at the end of the season. Certainly not for £25.6m anyway!
Also, how exactly have talks been taking place about a potential move? Presumably Juventus and the agents have Liverpool’s permission to speak? It all sounds a little far-fetched to me so I would take the Mail’s report with a HUGE pinch of salt.
What do Liverpool fans think about the Daily Mail’s report? Could Suarez really be in talks over a potential £25.6m switch to Juventus? Get involved in the comments section below.
