Luis Suarez believes he could still move to Juventus despite the club pressing on with plans to sign Roma forward Edin Dzeko.
The Barcelona striker’s future is up in the air amid a contract dispute with the Catalan giants.
Suarez – who is contracted to the club until 2021 – wants to be allowed to leave on a free transfer and still receive his annual salary for the 2020-21 campaign, which amounts to around €14 million (£13m/$17m).
It is a request that Barca have previously granted for legendary duo Andres Iniesta and Xavi, who were both allowed to leave before their contracts expired and were also paid compensation fees.
Indeed, the Uruguayan already has his eye on his next move, with the former Liverpool striker having travelled to Turin on Thursday to complete a language exam.
Suarez passed that test, with Gazzetta dello Sport reporting that he finished within half an hour and obtained a B1 grade.
Suarez, though, believes the door is still open for him to make the move to Turin, telling Gazzetta dello Sport prior to his return to Barcelona on Thursday:
“Yes, it’s possible [that a move to Juve will happen]”.
