LUIS SUAREZ has reportedly spoken to Juventus chief Paulo Nedved over a transfer that would see him link up with old rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Uruguayan is leaving the Nou Camp this summer after being told by new boss Ronald Koeman he is not part of his plans.
Juventus are in the market for a new striker to replace the outgoing Gonzalo Higuain.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Suarez and Juve vice president Nedved have been locked in discussions over a potential switch.
Talks are progressing well and it is looking increasingly likely the two legends of the game will share the same pitch next season.
Ronaldo and Suarez were part of football’s greatest rivalries when the Portuguese superstar played for Real Madrid.
Barca’s front three of Lionel Messi, Suarez and Neymar was often debated against Real’s Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale as to which was better during their peak.
Suarez is eager to hold out and listen to all offers before making a final decision and it is proving to be an obstacle in negotiations.
Juventus are eager to finalise his signature sooner rather than later so they avoid the risk of losing out.
The Old Lady are also considering making a move for Roma’s Edin Dzeko but they won’t let the striker leave until they land a replacement.
Unlike his best pal Messi, Suarez did turn up for Barcelona’s Covid-19 testing ahead of the new season.
He has also been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid with their league rivals reportedly making contact.
