Luis Suarez is close to joining Juventus as reports claim the Uruguayan striker has agreed personal terms with Serie A side.
The 33-year-old has been told his services are longer needed at the Camp Nou after his 60 seconds meeting with new boss Ronald Koeman.
Other top European clubs including Ajax and Paris Saint-Germain have shown their interest in Suarez who has a year left in his deal at Barcelona.
But according to Italian news outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport cited by Marca, the former Liverpool striker has agreed on a deal with the Bianconeri.
And the Uruguayan who is Lionel Messi's best friend will have to form an attacking partnership with his rival Cristiano Ronaldo at the Allianz Stadium.
The reports added that Suarez's personal terms worth around £9 million per year, close to what he earns at Barcelona, have been agreed.
Juventus have been in the market to replace departing striker Gonzalo Higuain, but with Suarez's deal almost getting over the line, Juve will have no more interest in Roma star Eden Dzeko.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Lionel Messi's departure from Barcelona is not being supported by club outcasts Luis Suarez and Arturo Vidal, reports claim.
The 33-year-old has refused to turn up for training after expressing his desire to leave the Camp Nou at the end of the season.
According to Sky Sports, some of Messi's teammates have remained silent on the matter with the exception of Suarez and Vidal.
Legit.ng also reported that Luis Suarez has been notified by the new Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman that he is no longer needed at the Spanish club, amid interests from several European clubs jostling for his services.
The former Liverpool star finally aired his opinion about the saga currently rocking the Catalan club, saying he will talk when he has to.
It was gathered that Serie A and Premier League clubs have been in contact with the Uruguayan hoping to seal personal agreement.
