Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo is reportedly still very much interested in the possibility of signing Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez and will have another shot at recruiting him in the summer. Pirlo was vividly interested in signing the Uruguayan forward after he was deemed surplus to requirements by Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman and was asked to leave the club.
Aside from the agreement between Suarez and Juventus which were getting closer to being ironed out, there was also the issue of citizenship application which proved to give the player some serious problems as he was not able to acquire the citizenship due to his inability to provide accurate answers to the questions he was asked.
After his failed move to Juve, the former Liverpool star striker found another option and joined Diego Someone’s Atletico Madrid; Barcelona’s league rivals, and has since been banging in goals for the Madrid club.
He is showing how good he still is at the club with 16 league goals scored so far this season, putting him second on the La Liga scoring charts and just behind former teammate and Barcelona captain Lionel Messi. He may be forming a deadly partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus should he switch to Turin in the summer.
