Barca close in on Suarez

Luis Suarez's move from Liverpool to Barcelona could be completed before the end of the weekend, Sky sources understand.

Talks between the clubs are ongoing, with only the fee for the striker's services the wrangling point.

Liverpool are holding out for 80m for their star forward - a sum that would activate a release clause in his contract - while Barcelona hope to lure him for a figure in the region of 60m.

Sky Sports News reporter Vinny O'Connor has confirmed that the future of Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez remains on the agenda, but it is understood the Chile forward will not be used as a makeweight and and that any deal would be brokered separately.
