Juventus plan to seal Luis Suarez free transfer by only paying Barcelona performance-related bonuses for striker

JUVENTUS will look to seal a bargain deal for Luis Suarez by only paying Barcelona performance-related bonuses, reports claim.

The former Liverpool striker has been told by Nou Camp boss Ronald Koeman he can find a new club.

Andrea Pirlo, who was the shock replacement for Maurizio Sarri last month, wants to bring in the 33-year-old forward.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports that talks are ongoing between Serie A champs Juve and Barcelona.

It is claimed Suarez is seeking a severance package from Barca chiefs.

And the good relationship between the two clubs is likely to lead to a deal being completed without too many hitches.

One of those areas of contention, though, is pay.

Di Marzio says a small payment could be made to Barca in the form of a bonus related to how Suarez performs.

Juventus are understood to have already agreed personal terms with the Uruguay ace.

He is set to earn £256,000 a week in Turin.

Former Old Lady star Claudio Marchisio recently hinted Suarez was on his way to Italy.

The 34-year-old, who played for the club from 2005 until 2018, shared a photograph of himself.

He added the caption: "Welcome September! Aspettando @LuisSuarez?!? #Turin", meaning "waiting for Suarez".

Suarez has reportedly been in touch with Juve chief Pavel Nedved to discuss a move.

New Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo is also said to be a huge fan of the Uruguay star.

Should he complete the transfer to Turin, he will link-up with old rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
