Uruguay international striker Luis Suarez is in Barcelona to complete his transfer from Liverpool.
Suarez will finalise his switch to the Nou Camp for a fee believed to be in the region of £70m.
The 27-year-old will link-up with Argentina skipper Lionel Messi and Brazil talisman Neymar in the Barcelona forward line when he is available for selection.
But Suarez will not even be allowed to train with his new club until the last week in October, after he was banned from all football activity for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in a recent World Cup match.
Suarez has previously served bans for biting Otman Bakkal of PSV Eindhoven in November 2010 while he was at Ajax, and Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a match for Liverpool in April 2013.
He also received a lengthy suspension in October 2011 for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra during a Premier League match at Anfield.
