Barcelona star striker Luis Suarez has agreed to join Italian outfit Juventus, claims Guillem Balague.
The 33-year-old Uruguay international will move to Serie A on a free or perhaps a nominal fee, if he negotiate release from the Spanish giants, the renowned journalist claimed while talking to BBC.
Former Liverpool forward is on last year of his contract and if he played 60 percent of the matches in the upcoming season, his contract would be extended for another year.
Suarez would be happy to be paid off with one season's wages.
Italian media reported on Friday that he would also need to pass a citizenship test to play in Italy - he has a Uruguayan passport and played in Spain thanks to his wife's Italian passport, enough to be considered European in La Liga.
Suarez's switch to Turin will see him line up along Messi's great rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
Suarez joined Barcelona from Liverpool for £74m in 2014 and has scored 198 goals in 283 appearances.
