'La Gazzetta dello Sport' says that the Juventus sporting director, Fabio Paratici, has got in contact wigth Luis Suarez's inner circle to tell him they will not sign him. The reason is that there has not been time to get his passport sorted. Edin Dzeko of Roma is the man chosen.

Luis Suarez is staying at Barca for now. Juventus, 'La Gazzetta dello Sport' reports, told Suarez via their sporting director, Fabio Paratici, that they will not sign him. That is because they have not been able to resolve the passport issues in time. They have told him so that he can think about his future.

It is well known that the Uruguayan had to sit a B1 Italian test to get Italian nationality. Time was pressing and it would have been ideal for him to get it done as soon as possible because the end of the transfer window is not far awat. In the end, the Juventus board gave up. 

Not only that, but also they have another striker lined up: Edin Dzeko. The aforementioned Italian paper adds that the Barca man has been told that the Roma striker has been chosen due Suarez's passport issues.

Luis Suarez, in any case, will still get try and get Italian citizenship. That would be very useful if another Serie A outfit came along. He turned down an offer from David Beckham to move to the MLS so he seems to want to stay in Europe.

No place under Koeman

The Uruguayan's short term future does not look good. Ronald Koeman has not included him in his first few squad lists as Barca coach and everything seems to suggest that they will get Memphis Depay. That said, the Lyon president told Bartomeu that they still do not have the money.

Suarez's departure seemed to be vital to free up a place in the squad and to allow them to have more money to sign players. Time is ticking, the transfer window is coming to a close and both the Uruguayana and his coach have to make a decision. Is he staying?
