Barça signs Suarez from Liverpool

July 14, 2014

On Friday Barça announced the club had come to an agreement with Liverpool over the reported £75 million signing of Luis Suarez.

Suarez was the top scorer in last season’s Premier League and voted player of the year, but is currently serving a four month ban from all football related activity for biting an opponent during the World Cup.

FIFA has informed FC Barcelona that they will not be able to present him as planned until his suspension is over, during which time he is not allowed in any football stadium or to participate in training.

Barça itself was banned from signing any new players for 14 months after breaking rules on signing minors. However, the ban was lifted pending an appeal, allowing the club to rebuild under its new coach Luis Enrique.
