Anfield striker edges ever closer to Nou Camp switch.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez appears to be edging ever closer to securing his long awaited move to Barcelona with the Metro reporting that the two clubs have reached ‘total agreement’ on a £62.6m deal.

Such a deal would be some way below the 27 year old’s reported £75m release clause and this source believes this is down to the Uruguayan’s value decreasing due to the four month ban FIFA handed the forward after he bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.
The Anfield side will look to secure the fee in one lump sum and moves to bring in Chilean Alexis Sanchez as a makeweight in the deal have been scuppered by the attacker’s preference for a move to Arsenal.
New Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is no doubt keen to field Suarez as part of a mouthwatering three pronged attack alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar, which will surely go some way to aiding the Catalan club’s push to reclaim the La Liga crown they lost to Atletico Madrid last season.
Suarez finished last term as the Premier League’s leading goal-scorer having netted 31 goals and is clearly a player Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers would be loathed to lose.
However the Northern Irishman has already started to bring in some top notch additions this summer and will no doubt be handed the majority of the funds from the Suarez sale to help fill the void should the former Ajax man leave for pastures new.
