Barcelona have also said there will be a farewell event for Suárez on Thursday afternoon.

Suarez signed for Barcelona a year after Liverpool ignored his clause that was triggered by Arsenal’s infamous £40m+£1 bid.

The 33-year-old scored 198 goals, with 109 assists, in just 283 games for Barcelona. He cost them £73.55m.
