Luis Suarez is 'in love' with Barcelona and wants to leave Liverpool this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo have claimed the Uruguayan striker who vanquished England in Sao Paulo has 'always left the door open' for a move to Camp Nou.

The 27-year-old scored two excellent goals as Uruguay dumped England out of World Cup Group D with a 2-1 win on Thursday night.

The paper have dedicated five pages to the potential transfer this morning qnd claim that Suarez made the decision to leave Liverpool after the 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace last season.

Suarez's daughter was born in Barcelona, and Mundo also argue that his ongoing feud with the British media is a big part of his desire to leave.

The paper says a potential transfer will cost Barcelona €85m (£68m).
