First of all little bit of history, Luis Suarez is well known for bad biting history like biting Otman Bakkal(2010), Branislov Ivanovic(2013) & Giorgio Chiellini(2014). After biting chiellini on worldcup suarez was suspended from all football related activity for 4 months. At that time Liverpool had no choice other than transfering Luis suarez to barcelona as Sturridge was injured and suarez was banned and they had no option for striker. Barcelona offered them £75 million for transfer and they bought eight players like Mario Balotelli(£16m), Rickie Lambert(£4m), Lazar Markovic(£20m), Alberto Moreno (£12m), Emre Can(£10m), Divock Origi (£10m), Adam Lallana (£25m), Dejan Lovren (£20m) on same transfer window.
Suarez completes Barcelona’s forward trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar(MSN) which is the most lethal trio of strikers in history! They managed to score 122 goals in only one season.
