After Luis Suarez’s latest biting incident, it looked like Liverpool were finally willing to bend and grant the Uruguayan his wish, a transfer out of the Premier League. Barcelona and Real Madrid reportedly had a bidding war going for Luis Suarez, but it looks like there are some murmurs on the internet that Barcelona has won out with a bid of 82m€.

Interestingly, Warrior and Liverpool unveiled their new alternate and third kit Monday morning. In the released photographs, none of them contained an image of Luis Suarez.
While Suarez thinks the European media is out to get him, he might not be as welcomed in Barcelona as he thinks he will be,
“I have read about the transfer,” Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov said, via the Mirror. “He seems a really good player to me, one of the best forwards, with the character required to play for the biggest clubs – but the bites are going to be a problem!
“He is marked for the rest of his life. To play at Barca with what he has done is a problem. Every opponent and the referees and the press will make his life difficult.
“He will have to play with provocation and media attention, which will leave him in permanent tension.”
