The inevitable has come to pass. Liverpool have officially announced the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
With Suarez out the door there is a massive gap in Liverpool's exceptional attack from last season. There is a rumor circulating that they will attempt to fill that gap with Karim Benzema. Not exactly a like for like change but certainly not a bad consolation prize if it happens. Fri, Jul 11, 2014 09:14:00 AM

Serial biter Luis Suarez had his appeal of his four-month FIFA suspension rejected by the sport's governing body.

With the rest of the World Cup going on, it seems like an under-reported story that FIFA has ventured outside their usual jurisdiction to impose a worldwide ban on Luis Suarez for four months. The Uruguay and Liverpool forward appealed the suspension and that appeal has now been rejected. He still has the option to appeal to further to the Court of Arbitration for Sport who might, indeed, indicate that FIFA can only ban him from playing for Uruguay. Regardless, this turn of events likely has zero impact on Suarez's likely move to Barcelona that continues to rumble forward.

With the Luis Suarez transfer saga still making headlines, Liverpool have been linked with more attacking talent in the form of Lazar Markovic and Divock Origi.

If Liverpool are going to lose Luis Suarez, then they aren't going for stopgap measures to replace him. They are continuing to look to young players with very high ceilings as they start spending the Suarez transfer fee before it is confirmed. The latest two targets rumored to be close to a move are Serbian winger/forward Lazar Markovic and Belgium forward/World Cup sensation Divock Origi. Markovic (20) and Origi (19) are both poised to be exceptional talents but neither seem terribly likely to replace much of the production lost if Suarez goes to Barcelona. Reports indicate that Origi would be loaned back to Lille as part of the transfer deal. Sounds like a replacement in his prime is also in order if Liverpool are to keep their spot in the top four and challenge for the league title again this season.

The Luis Suarez to Barcelona rumor seems to be gaining more and more steam and the Uruguay striker could be headed to Barcelona within 48 hours.

There have been many rumors about a Suarez move ever since the bite accident in the World Cup and it seems the rumors are true. Various reports from England and Spain are reporting that a deal is imminent. The reported sum is $137 million, which would made Suarez the second most expensive player in history behind Gareth Bale. If the move happens, Alexis Sanchez could be headed the other way to Liverpool as part of the compensation for Suarez or in a completely separate deal. Sanchez would be a great fit at Liverpool and would immediately be a great fantasy option.

Uruguay Starting XI: Muslera, Godin (c), Pereira, Rodriguez, Forlan, Gimenez, Pereira, Arevalo, Gonzalez, Cavani, Caceres.

With Luis Suarez suspended, Uruguay have inserted Diego Forlan in the starting lineup. They face an extremely tough opposition in Colombia in what should be a great round of 16 game.

FIFA have handed Luis Suarez his punishment for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini - a nine match ban from international play ending his participation in World Cup 2014, and a four month ban from all play, which would cause him to miss Liverpool's first nine Premier League matches.

A key here in the ban is that Liverpool are allowed to transfer Suarez during the interim of his ban should another club want to take a chance on the dynamic player despite his clear pattern of an inability to control himself at times. Considering Liverpool have already dealt with his bite on Branislav Ivanovic, it would be a shock to see them keep him around and stand behind him again. He has suitors in La Liga and they may get his services at a discount but do not count on seeing him in the Premier League any time soon, if ever again.

FIFA have opened disciplinary action against Luis Suarez after he appeared to bite Italy defender, Giorgio Chiellini, in their third round group-stage World Cup match. A decision is expected before Uruguay's next match, Saturday, against Colombia.

Suarez faces a ban of between two matches and two years. The video evidence is damning, and with his prior infractions, it's hard to imagine he gets less than the 10-match ban he received for biting Branislav Ivanovic last year. It seems that his World Cup campaign is over, despite Uruguay advancing, and he may yet again miss Liverpool's early season matches.

Luis Suarez appeared to bite Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini in Uruguay's last group match.

Suarez appeared to headbutt Chiellini with the bottom portion of his head and Chiellini proceeded to claim Suarez bit him. He tried showing the referee his shoulder, claiming to show bite marks. Pictures of Chiellini's shoulder show marks resembling bite marks but the evidence is inconclusive. FIFA will certainly be reviewing this incident and it would be interesting to see the conclusion of their reports. It will also be interesting if the Premier League takes any action should the initial reports of a bite turn out to be true. If true, this would be the third time Suarez has bitten someone on the pitch.

Italy Starting XI vs Uruguay: Buffon, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, De Rossi, De Sciglio, Verratti, Pirlo, Darmian, Balotelli, Immobile.

Italy's main job today will be to stop Luis Suarez as all they need to go on to the next round is a draw. The problem arises that Uruguay have several capable attackers and stopping Suarez might not be enough. Edinson Cavani will also create problems.

Luis Suarez picked up right where he left off from his Premier League campaign by scoring the opening and game-winning goals against England to get themselves back in the chase to advance from Group D.

Apparently no one has mastered the English game better than Suarez. After setting the single season record for goals in the PL, he scores twice against England in his first WC 2014 appearance. There doesn't seem to be anything to worry about regarding his knee either as he was able to last 88 minutes, just enough time to score the winner in the 85th. His only two shots both went in, and though it is debatable that England keeper Joe Hart could have done better, no one can question Suarez's ability to finish. Uruguay will now hope Italy defeat Costa Rica, so that the Azzurri will already have their ticket punched for the knockout stage and present an easier task when Uruguay play them.

Uruguay XI: Muslera; Giménez, Godín, Cáceres; Pereira, Ríos, Lodeiro, González, Rodríguez; Suárez, Cavani

Luis Suarez makes his anticipated debut in World Cup 2014 just in time for an epic matchup in which he will try to run circles around his club teammates. Both sides desperately need a win here though a draw would keep both countries afloat as they will likely be rooting for Italy to defeat Costa Rica.

Luis Suarez missed Uruguay's match against Costa Rica due to fitness concerns.

Uruguay coaches are not willing to risk Suarez and kept him on the bench even though the team went down 3-1 in the match. Suarez is supposed to recover in time to play later in the group stages but Uruguay losing to Costa Rica seriously hurts their chances of making it out of the group. He will likely start on the bench against England and could start against Italy. He should not be used in fantasy leagues in Uruguay's next match.

The Real Madrid Galatico transfer game plan is playing out as expected with more rumors about a possible Suarez transfer in today's papers.

First it was a rumor in club-friendly Spanish newspaper Marca yesterday. Today comes a specific price (£73m) and the possible allure of some players who could be swapped as part of the deal (Fabio Coentrao and Alvaro Morata are the first names mentioned). With Liverpool on the rise and offering Suarez Champions League football, the situation isn't quite the same as Gareth Bale last season. That said, Real is the reigning Champions League winner and it is a stretch to think Liverpool are one of the favorites to win the world's most prestigious club competition over the next few seasons even if they can keep their place in England's top four. It will be a fascinating and at the same time really tiresome saga over the course of the summer.

The Real Madrid transfer machine has lurched into motion with Marca posting a headline indicating that the European champions' executive team has identified Suarez as their top transfer target.

Real Madrid seem to make a habit of identifying one player every summer to target for a seemingly incredible transfer saga. More often than not, they get their man whether that be Zidane, Ronaldo, or, more recently, Gareth Bale. It usually starts with far-fetched rumors in Marca and is followed up by Real players saying kind things about the target all summer. With most of those players, plus Suarez, all in Brazil for the next month you can probably assume there will be some in-person tapping up as well. Whether Suarez is moved to try and force a move or not is still very much in question but Madrid has a way of getting what it wants so don't be surprised if this happens.
