Transfer Shocker: Luis Suarez wants Barcelona to sign 'talented' £60k-a-week Liverpool flop

Luis Suarez is reportedly keen for Barcelona to sign one of his old Liverpool team-mates.

Last month, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claimed that Barcelona want much-maligned ex-Red Glen Johnson, and although that seems improbable, the Daily Mail also claims:

"Johnson is on a list of possible January signings at Barcelona and the ex-England international will have the backing of his old LFC team-mate Luis Suarez".

In his autobiography, Suarez reserved special praise for Johnson:

"He [Johnson] impressed me hugely. He has a combination of physical strength, power and intelligence and technically he’s so good that despite being right footed he shoots better off of his left foot".

At the age of 32, it'll be a massive surprise to see Johnson end up at Barca, but defensive deficiencies aside, good luck to him if he manages to secure such an amazing transfer.

Only a select few get to represent Barca, and Johnson - reportedly on £60k-a-week - would be mad to turn down a move to the Nou Camp. Granted, he might warm the bench more often than not, but the chance of actually winning a couple of trophies has to be an attractive proposition.
