It’s official: Barça paid €81 million for Suárez
Barcelona’s vice-president Jordi Mestre has made an official announcement regarding the figures involved in Luis Suárez’s move from Liverpool. The deal with the English team was done at €81 million and the Uruguayan forward’s release clause at Barcelona is €200 million.
Mestre was keen to stress that the ‘Azulgranas’ had bargained to agree a price lower than the release clause that Suárez had with Liverpool (€95 million), which he was personally very pleased about.
The Barcelona executive also confirmed that negotiations with Liverpool began before the World Cup and therefore before Suárez’s bite on Giorgio Chiellini.
What do you think, Value for money? Or have Liverpool done some fantastic business?
