'Suarez 9' shirts go on sale in Barcelona as speculation over £63m move intensifies

Luis Suarez is yet to complete his £63m move to Barcelona, but that hasn't stopped one merchandiser in Spain pre-empting the Uruguayan's arrival.

The Liverpool striker is expected to leave Anfield this summer after being handed a four-month worldwide ban which means he is unable to play competitively until October, and Barcelona are reportedly in talks to sign the 27-year-old.

As negotiations continue, it appears that a sports shop in Barcelona, Futbol Mania, has taken a bold step in the shirt-selling race to be the first ones to sell a Suarez shirt.

Bold indeed, given that they have allegedly printed shirts with 'Suarez 9' on the back - which is currently Alexis Sanchez's shirt number.

But with the £32m-rated Chilean reportedly departing to join Arsenal, it seems feasible that Suarez would take the famous No. 9 shirt.

It's undoubtedly the image that all Liverpool fans would have feared, and Reds fans will only need to cast their minds back to August 2013 when Gareth Bale shirts went on sale in Madrid before the Welsh star had completed his world record move to Real Madrid.

If there is any consolation for Liverpool supporters, it is that the shirt hasn't gone on sale in the official club shop yet or, as we have seen previously, a club employee hasn't mistakenly posted a shirt for sale on the club website.

But it seems more likely now than ever before that Suarez will seal a dream move to the Camp Nou.
