As interesting as the game of football is on the field, there are plenty of other things that attract a lot of attention from the fans of the sport around the world.

Football Leaks, a controversial website has been grabbing loads of popularity by, as the name suggests, publicizing confidential information regarding the players of the sport.

Over the past few months, the website has leaked the transfer documents of some of the biggest players in Europe. Along with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Gareth Bale and Anthony Martial, a number of other players have fallen prey to this whistle blowing site.

The website has now turned the spotlight onto Barcelona and Uruguay forward Luis Suarez.

Suarez made a big money transfer to the Spanish giants from English club Liverpool back in 2014. The original documents of the deal were leaked by the website.


He has since been impeccable playing alongside the likes of Messi and Neymar and is now arguably the best striker in Europe.

However, he was never far away from controversy which was the one of the reasons why Liverpool did not keep hold of their player.

In the World Cup the 29-year old was involved in an incident where he appeared to bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in a group stage encounter.

Soon after, he was banned from football any kind of football for 4 months and the leaked document suggested that Liverpool were keen to part ways with the striker.

The document also revealed that there were no clauses included, such as a sell-on fee or additional payment should Barca win the Champions League.

Instead there was a flat fee of £64.98 million (€82.3m) which was payable over five installments.


Each year, the Catalan giants pay around £13 million to the English franchise and the last payment is due on the 31st of July this year.

This price, though high in numbers has already been repaid by the 29-year old who has scored 68 goals in his 86 appearances for the club.

This fee also makes Suarez the 4th most expensive player behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Neymar Jr in the first three places.
