Liverpool ‘accept £63million Barcelona transfer offer for striker Luis Suarez’
Liverpool have reportedly accepted a £63million offer from Barcelona for star striker Luis Suarez.
According to Catalan TV station TV3, Barca made the offer this morning and after further negotiations, Liverpool have now accepted the deal.
The news comes after the Reds rejected Barca’s opening £55.7million bid this week, and demanded much more in order to do business.
Barca now expect Suarez to travel to Spain for a medical in the coming days, with a five-year contract being offered.
Liverpool had previously suggested that they wouldn’t sell Suarez for anything less than £75million, but appear to have altered their position with Suarez making it clear that he did not want to stay at Anfield any longer.
Suarez, who is currently serving a four-month ban from ‘all footballing activities’, was given the green light this week by Fifa to have a medical with Barca, after suggestions he wouldn’t be able to.
