Barcelona ‘to pay €35m plus Sanchez’ for Suarez
Barcelona hope to pay between €35m and €40m plus Alexis Sanchez for Liverpool forward Luis Suarez.
It has been reported that the Uruguay international is close to a move to Camp Nou with Barca potentially exploiting a clause in his contract.
Suarez can leave Anfield for €85m – a fee that is lowered by €20m if it is Barca or Real Madrid making the offer.
But Barca want to get Suarez cheaper still and believe they can use Brendan Rodgers’ interest in Alexis as leverage by including the Chile winger in their offer for Suarez, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Barca value Alexis at between €25m and €30m and he is also wanted by Juventus and Atletico Madrid.
