Atletico Madrid are reportedly hopeful of signing Luis Suarez on a free transfer this summer.
The Italian champions are now out of the running for the experienced striker, but he is still expected to leave Camp Nou over the next couple of weeks.
Suarez has a contract with the side until next June, but it has been suggested that Barca would be prepared to allow him to leave for nothing this summer.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Atletico are attempting to sign the South American on a free transfer, although the deal relies on the player coming to an agreement with his current club.
Suarez has scored 198 goals and registered 109 assists in 283 appearances for Barca in all competitions.
