After landing in Perugia and passing both the oral and written examinations to obtain Italian citizenship, Luis Suárez has yet again moved away from signing for Juventus, according to Romeo Agresti via GOAL.

This morning, Barcelona’s Uruguayan striker travelled in a private jet to Perugia, Italy to undertake his Italian language examinations. This was part of the bureaucratic process for him to obtain Italian citizenship and finally be able to join Juventus. Suárez finished both examinations in an hour and passed, but there still appeared to be a long way to go before he could sign for the Bianconeri.

Now, Juventus have turned their sights to Roma’s Edin Džeko. The Bosnian striker is in pole position to replace Gonzalo Higuaín as Juventus’ center forward, while Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik seems to be on his way to Roma to take over the protagonism in attack. This sequence of events has left Suárez ever further from The Old Lady, and his future at Barcelona remains to be confirmed.
