Suarez ban won't block Barca switch

Congleton Guardian: Luis Suarez could have a medical if he were to join Barcelona Luis Suarez could have a medical if he were to join Barcelona

Luis Suarez would be allowed to have a medical ahead of a transfer under the terms of his four-month ban for biting, FIFA's disciplinary chief has confirmed.

The Liverpool striker has been banned from all football-related activities including from stadiums, but it will not prevent him moving clubs if a transfer deal is agreed.

Barcelona are understood to be in negotiations about signing the Uruguay striker.

Claudio Sulser, the head of FIFA's disciplinary committee, said: "The player cannot have any activity related to football, but a medical examination for a transfer yes - the sanction is not linked to transfer rights."

Suarez has appealed against the four-month ban imposed for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini.
