Liverpool will only get £54m up front for Luis Suarez as striker has Barcelona medical

Posted: July 9, 2014 in General

Luis Suarez is expected to complete his transfer to Barcelona in the next 48 hours with the Liverpool striker currently undertaking a medical with the La Liga club.

Barca were given permission to hold talks with Suarez late last week after their offer of about £63million was accepted by the Reds.

The striker’s agent has since travelled to Catalonia to thrash out personal terms on a five-year contract which will see him earn around £170,000-a-week.

Suarez will fly to Spain to formally sign his contract once a medical has been completed, which is being undertaken under the supervision of Barca doctors in Uruguay.

The transfer will be part-funded by Alexis Sanchez’s £30million switch to Arsenal, but AS reports that Liverpool will only receive about £54million of the Suarez fee up front.
