The 27 year old Uruguayan is expected to complete his move to the Nou Camp within the next 48 hours and has agreed personal terms with the Catalan outfit.

The former Ajax man will sign a five year deal worth a reported £170k a week and the deal will be part funded by Barcelona’s imminent sale of Chilean Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal.

Though the cost of the move is thought to cost Barcelona £63m only £54m of that fee will be up front with the rest being paid in installments.

New Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is in the process of conducting a major re-shuffling of his squad with Cesc Fabregas having already completed his move to Chelsea and veterans Victor Valdes and Carles Puyol also leaving the club whilst keepers Marc-André ter Stegen and Claudio Bravo and Croatian playmaker Ivan Rakitic joining this summer.

Suarez finished 2013/14 as the Premier League’s leading goal-scorer having netted an impressive 31 times whilst playing a pivotal role in Liverpool’s genuine title challenge.
