I still think he's got a few more years being able to play in a top 5 league. Just won't match the expectation of Barcelona anymore. He's lost a lot of pace so he needs a lot of support these days. I think the Inter Milan rumours work, because he would prove to be handy for them. Especially if Lautaro leaves.

Agent Godin at work.

Inter would be perfect for him. Assuming Lukaku stays, he'll play alongside him in a 2 striker system which is what he needs. Both of them can provide for each other and he's still easily a 15+ goal striker when played right. With his lack of pace, he struggles as a lone forward similar to Falcao in his latter years, although not quite that bad.

I think MLS is too soon for now. He can still do a job at a club like Inter.

Ajax have had a 15 million euros bid accepted.  Barcelona would like to include Suarez in the Van de Beek deal.

Makes sense. Suarez back 'home' effectively. Reckon he'll stay til end of his career there?

I can see him back at Nacional at one point.

Suárez was actually having a class season pre-covid before injury.

It'll be hard to replace him though even if he has piled on the pounds as there aren't many great strikers around right now and it's not like someone such as Mbappe is gettable.

The only attacking player I'd say right now is Fati. But he's a winger.

If you ask me himself, Puig and Araújo need to be playing as much as possible. It's not like they haven't impressed in the first team.

I don't get why Cucurella isn't brought back either as he's shown what he's about at Getafe. Granted as a left winger but he's made for that attacking full back role for me.

Dembélé needs to sort his lifestyle and diet out as he could be one of the world's best. This will probably be his last chance this season.

When it comes to strikers I suppose the only option would be to buy one. There has been talk of Lautaro Martinez but it won't be easy.

But honestly, the main things that need sorting out more than anything are the defence and midfield.

Is this the first time in his career that he has moved to another club without biting somebody?

He's always said he wanted to go back to Ajax eventually and then after that go back to Nacional.

I've read he might be available on a free. Surely we could do something here if that's the case.

I think his wages would be a major issue! We simply don't pay massive wages.

Would be nice though having Mane, Salah, Firmino & Suarez to rotate.

If Ajax can afford Suarez, so can Liverpool. Delusional thinking otherwise. You’d think Liverpool were a skint   third division club reading posts on here sometimes.

Who says Ajax can afford Suarez, or that he's going there?

Fuck me, some people hear a rumour and think they know everyone's finances xD

Nobody said Liverpool can't afford it, just that massive wages for a player at the end of his career would probably be a big issue.

FSG have a policy on player wages that is performance incentive based, and stick to it, rightly or wrongly. 

Not all owners just throw money around like its a game of monopoly.

Ok, you know best. I really cant be arsed. 

No way are we signing Suarez, free or not, I would bet my house on it. Of course we could afford it but it totally goes against the policy FSG have put in place at the club. 

Look into it, I can't be bothered to explain in depth mate.

I know. I just think we've lost Lovren, Lallana and Clyne who were earning about £250k a week between them. If the offer of a one or two year contract was there for Suarez surely it's worth it? You could understand if we missed out because he took a huge contact elsewhere though

This. Suarez returning and pushing the front three on would be excellent. Yeah, he's older, but so what? Players can play longer nowadays.

Though, I can't see him going anywhere other than Ajax at this point.

The way he's being released makes it really likely that he's going to have to take lower wages than he was on at Barca (which is something outrageous btw). Because they're buying out the last year of his contract in exchange for him not exercising his option to extend because they've played him for a certain number of games that gives him that option (so they'll be paying him for one season, rather than two).

So he's getting a bunch of money just for having his contract terminated... then he's going to be signing with a club as a free agent. That usually means getting a lot of money in a lump sum up front as a signing fee, as well as pretty high wages - that sort of make up for the "low cost" of not having to negotiate a transfer fee.

It'd be worth sounding out if he'd want to be a squad player with us... but he's also pretty far from the same player he was when he left us. And he wouldn't be more than a squad player, imo, and I think he's looking to be moving to a club where he'll still be a key player. And I think despite his quality waning, I think he's still good enough to be a key player at a pretty good club.

I don't think Ajax has a player that's currently over 100kpw

Ajax would have to offer him a large signing on fee and a lower wage, which Marc Overmars has already stated as they do not want to break their wage structure.   It all depends to what Suarez wants to do in his career, if he was big pay deal before retiring.

Suárez to Juventus is a real possibility. 

The deal could be completed with the clubs exchanging players + a sum of cash for Barcelona

It's good to remember that Barcelona and Juventus already made a similar deal earlier this year.
