Suarez had been widely expected to make the move to Juventus after new Barca boss Ronald Koeman made it clear that he did not feature in his plans.
Suarez passed an Italian exam in Perugia last week in order to acquire dual nationality, with Juve unable to bring in any more non-EU players in this transfer window following the arrivals of Arthur Melo and Weston McKennie.
The 33-year-old was facing an anxious wait for a passport to be approved ahead of the transfer window closing on October 5, and Andrea Pirlo admitted at the weekend the transfer would be ‘difficult’.
According to Italian outlet Gazzette dello Sport, the new Juventus boss said: ‘Suarez is difficult because the times to get a passport are long, it is complicated that [our new striker] can be him.’

The breakdown in his move to Juve has allowed Atletico to swoop in, with Diego Simeone looking to pair Suarez with Diego Costa up front.
The move will see Morata head for pastures new once more.
The Spaniard spent two seasons at Juve between 2014 and 2016 and was part of the side that reached the Champions League final in 2015.
