‘Suarez has Juventus DNA & will thrive alongside Ronaldo’ – Barcelona transfer talk no surprise to former director

Luis Suarez has Juventus “DNA” and would have no problem slotting in alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at the Serie A champions, says former Barcelona director Ariedo Braida.

A move to Italy is being mooted for the Uruguayan frontman amid efforts at Camp Nou to freshen up the squad.

Ronald Koeman is said to have informed Suarez that he does not figure in his long-term plans, paving the way for a prolific 33-year-old striker to head elsewhere.

Juve are not about to let that opportunity pass them by, with the Bianconeri moving quickly to make their interest known in a proven performer.

It could be that Suarez is taken to Turin to partner 35-year-old Ronaldo, with the Italian giants leaning heavily on experience.

Braida believes that could be a positive for Andrea Pirlo’s side, with there every reason to believe that Suarez – who has previously starred for Ajax and Liverpool – will be a success story in new surroundings.

A man who worked at Camp Nou until August 2019 and previously spent several years in Serie A as general manager at AC Milan, told Tuttosport of the Suarez speculation: “I'm not surprised about hisBarcelonaexit because football is about cycles.

“EvenCristiano RonaldoleftReal Madridbecause he felt his time there was over.

“Suarezis a fighter and his battling spirit infects the rest of his teams. He has character and the DNA to play forJuventusand other big clubs.

“If he is motivated, he'll be a strong signing even at 33 years of age.”

Quizzed on whether the South American can thrive alongside a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Braida added: “He won't have problems playing withRonaldo.

“They'll understand each other perfectly because they're two natural winners.”

Suarez has spent the last six years on the books at Barcelona, registering 198 goals through 283 appearances.
