Luis Suarez has reportedly put a phone call through to Giorgio Chiellini in a bid to clear the air ahead of his potential move to Juventus.

Suarez infamously planted his canines on Chiellini's shoulder during Uruguay's group stage match against Italy back in 2014 in Brazil.

The act did not earn the Uruguayan marching orders on that day as the referee did not see, but he was slapped with a four-month ban from football for the attack.

The pair could potentially become teammates this summer, with Suarez linked with a sensational switch to Juventus.

The former Liverpool star is said to be on the verge of penning a contract worth £9 million per year with the Serie A giants.

The veteran striker has understandably fallen out of favour at Camp Nou and could be offloaded as Ronaldo Koeman kicks off his reign at Barcelona.

At 33, the Spanish giants are looking to offload Suarez to ease their wage bill as they usher in a new era.

Juventus hope the partnership involving Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Paulo Dybala could help them challenge for the Champions League next season.
