According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez has snubbed a move to Juventus and is tempted by a transfer in the MLS.
Juventus are on the lookout for a new striker in the winter transfer window as Alvaro Morata is pushing to join Barcelona.
The Spain international knows that Juventus won’t make his move permanent at the end of the season, so he is determined to leave Turin six months before the end of his loan spell.
However, Juventus won’t let the striker go until they find a replacement and according to the latest report of Sky Sport Italia, the Bianconeri are annoyed with Barcelona, who approached the forward without their consent.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, the Old Lady tried to replace Morata with Luis Suarez, but the Uruguay international snubbed a move to Turin.
Suarez was close to joining the Bianconeri in 2020, but his move collapsed as he needed to obtain Italian citizenship to be eligible for Serie A.
He underwent an exam at the University of Perugia, but it later emerged that Suarez had been given the questions in advance, leading to an investigation into the professors of the University of Perugia, former Juventus director Fabio Paratici and Juventus lawyers Maria Turco and Luigi Chiappero.
The FIGC Prosecutor announced in December that Juventus won’t be punished because ‘there has not been sufficient evidence of proven unlawful conduct relevant to the Federal Sports Order’.
However, according to the report, the investigation has nothing to do with Suarez’s decision to reject a move to Turin as the 34-year-old is considering a move to the MLS.
