Barcelona look set to complete a deal for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez this summer, given the recent swell of rumours surrounding the Uruguayan, as per Sky Sports and B/R's own Guillem Balague.

To add to that, a picture showing his name on a Barca shirt in a kit shop went viral on Monday.

If it has any relationship with the reality of the deal, it points to Alexis Sanchez's exit from the Camp Nou—this season, the No. 9 shirt was his.

It looks like a bit of mischief-making with the talks over his transfer still ongoing, but it's one of those chapters you have to expect in a major deal in the social media era.
