“He does not speak a word of Italian. He does not conjugate verbs, he only speaks using the infinitive. If journalists would ask him some questions, he’d be lost. He earns €10m/year, he needs to pass this exam” 🚨 [Repubblica]
Juventus have already filled their quota of the season for non-EU players who want to join from another club that is not in the Serie A and Suarez could only sign with the Turin-based outfit if he acquired Italian citizenship.
Reports claim both parties had agreed to personal terms but the deal could not go through due to his citizenship status.
