FIFA agent: Juventus attractive to Luis Suarez
Giovanni Branchini believes Suarez would consider a summer transfer to Juventus
Luis Suarez should sign for Serie A giants Juventus in the summer window if he is indeed planning on leaving Liverpool, the FIFA agent Giovanni Branchini has advised the striker.
The Uruguayan hit-man is expected to be the hottest property during the upcoming transfer window with clubs such as Paris Saint Germain, Bayern Munich and Juventus all reported to be keeping close tabs on him.
Although the 26-year-old stroked a new long-term deal with his current employers at the start of the season, the opportunity to represent an outfit competing in the Champions League could cajole the player into making the switch.
And if the striker is indeed serious in pursuing a career outside of Liverpool after the end of the term, Branchini recommended him to select Juventus over other suitors.
Branchini may not be Suarez’s representative, but enjoys good relations with the player’s agent, Pere Guardiola, brother of former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola.
Branchini told Tuttosport: “I am not Suarez’s agent, but I do collaborate with Guardiola’s brother. I can express a personal opinion on this situation.
“Pep’s brother is his agent, but that doesn’t mean Suarez is guaranteed to join Bayern Munich. At the moment I haven’t heard of Bayern even approaching Liverpool for Suarez.
“He didn’t say he would certainly leave Liverpool, though, as his family is settled there. Suarez is faced with a real lifestyle choice.
“Do Juventus have what it takes to convince him? Certainly. If Suarez were to realise it is counterproductive to remain at Liverpool, outside the Champions League and away from the prospect of growth in the peak of his career, then it would be a formidable scenario for Juventus.
“Suarez needs to fully understand the appeal of the Bianconeri, what Juve have represented, do represent and will represent. Juventus are a huge club and do not need to beg anyone, as great players already dream of going there.
“If they were to knock Bayern out of the Champions League, then that could prove decisive for Suarez, who would really understand how great Juve are today.”
Suarez has been a supreme performer for Liverpool this campaign, firing 29 goals in all competitions. Last week, the Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre had claimed that the Uruguayan ace’s recent remarks had been taken out of context, and that he would be wearing the Liverpool jersey next season.
