Luis Suarez will be confirmed as FC Barcelona's newest big-money signing as early as today, bringing an end to the controversial Uruguay international's three-year spell at Liverpool.

But although Reds' supporters will need time to get over the news of their star player's sudden departure, there are five players who stand to benefit from Suarez's £75 million move to the Camp Nou.

Suarez: Great player; Crazy individual

Suarez is currently banned from all forms of football until the end of October. So, Barcelona fans won't catch their first glimpse of the world-class South American - barring his presentation next week - for several months yet.

The Catalan faithful are delighted to have secured the services of such a brilliant forward, but they could be forgiven for having reservations about the type of human being their club has purchased.

Biting one player in your career is mental enough. Biting two players is simply inexcusable, while bitting three players - like Suarez has - could, and probably should, have resulted in a jail sentence.

But it seems every time Suarez decides to sink his teeth into an opponent, good things happen.

The first time - in November 2011 on Otman Bakkal - he secured a move to Liverpool. The second time - in April 2013 on Branislav Ivanovic - he went on to enjoy the best season of his professional career. And the third time - last month on Giorgio Chiellini - he ends up sealing a dream move to Barcelona to play alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Therefore, if Suarez fancies a lucrative new contract or a move to Real Madrid - don't put it past him - some poor soul plying their trade in La Liga could become his next victim.

Five stars to benefit from Suarez transfer

So, without further adieu, let's get onto the five stars who will benefit from Suarez's transfers. Some are a little more tongue-in-cheek that others - you can probably guess which ones - but leave a comment in the box below to give us your thoughts.
