Those meddling oiks over at Football Leaks have done it again, somehow unearthing a publishing the contract that saw Luis Suarez leave Liverpool for Barcelona in the summer of 2014.

The leaked documents reveal that rather than the £75million transfer fee that was reported in the press, Barca actually got their man for the low, low price of just £64.98million.

The leaked paperwork also shows that Suarez’s fee was paid in five instalments – four chunks of £13million (in July 2014, January 2015, July 2015 and January 2016 respectively) and a final payment of £12.98million, which is due this coming July.

Seeing as Suarez has 67 goals and 37 assists since joining Barca the summer before last, we’d venture that it’s all been money well spent.
