FIFA confirm Liverpool star can undergo medical at Barcelona

FIFA have confirmed that despite his worldwide football ban, Luis Suarez is allowed to undergo a medical at Barcelona should they agree a deal with Liverpool for their star man, as reported by talkSPORT.

The Uruguayan is banned for four months after another biting incident, this time at the World Cup in their clash with Italy.

Liverpool are yet to comment on the ban but look set to cash in on the controversial forward as Barcelona come calling.

The Reds have already forked out some serious funds this summer on new singings and the departure of Suarez would only lead to further additions.

FIFA have confirmed that despite being banned from all football, including training and visiting stadiums, Suarez can take part in a medical should it come to that.

“The player cannot have any activity related to football, but a medical examination for a transfer, yes – the sanction is not linked to transfer rights,” Claudio Sulser, the head of FIFA’s disciplinary committee, said.

“It’s a sanction against the player. That is the risk if you are a player and you are sanctioned at the World Cup.

“I agree with you it’s a problem for Liverpool, but the sanction is in the disciplinary regulations.”
