Luis Suarez reveals Barcelona rejected recommendation for Liverpool signing Darwin Nunez

Luis Suarez has revealed how Barcelona rejected his advice about Darwin Nunez.

22-year-old Nunez joined Liverpool from Benfica last week in a club-record £85m deal.

Fellow Uruguyan Suarez saw Nunez's potential before most and wanted to play with the striker at Barcelona.

"It was last season that Europe started to take notice of him because of his performances for Benfica - but from an early age I could see there was something special in him," Suarez told The Mirror.

"While he was at Almeria I recommended him to Barcelona but it was something that never happened."
