Barcelona:

Barcelona announced on Friday they had struck a deal to sign Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez from Liverpool, sealing the transfer despite the uproar over him biting a World Cup rival.

Suarez "will be travelling to Barcelona next week for a medical, to sign his five-year contract and to be officially presented to the media and fans as an FC Barcelona player," the club said in a statement.

Liverpool confirmed the deal on the club website.

"Liverpool FC confirms that Luis Suarez will be leaving the club after a transfer agreement was reached with FC Barcelona," a statement read. (Also read: FIFA rejects appeal against ban on Suarez)

"The player now has permission to complete the usual formalities, which will then conclude the transfer.

"We would like to thank Luis for his contribution and the role he played in helping bring Champions League football back to Anfield.

"Everyone at Liverpool Football Club wishes Luis and his family well for the future."

No details of the fee nor how it is to be paid were disclosed and Suarez, currently serving a four-month ban for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup, is set to be confirmed as a Barcelona player next week.
