Suarez will reportedly be donning the number nine shirt at BarcelonaReuters

Barcelona shirts featuring Luis Suarez's name has already hit stores in Spain, even though the Uruguayan striker is yet to complete his move to the Nou Camp.

Although the 27-year-old striker will not be able to play till October following a nine-match international suspension as well as a four-month ban from all football related activity for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Barcelona are still keen on getting his signature after seeing him enjoy a very successful campaign with Liverpool last season.

However, the deal is not complete yet, as Barcelona are reportedly still in negotiations with Liverpool. Still, this hasn't stopped one store from selling Barcelona shirts featuring Suarez's name.

An unofficial Barcelona store in Spain, Futbol Mania has already started putting out 'Suarez 9' shirts for sale even though the number 9 shirt is currently occupied by Alexis Sanchez.

However, with the Chilean forward expected to join Arsenal this summer, it looks like Suarez, who wears the number 7 shirt at Liverpool, will be getting his preferred number 9 shirt at the Catalan club.

Meanwhile Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov has asked Suarez to brace himself for a "difficult" life at the Nou Camp.

Although he admits that Suarez is a "really good" player and has what it takes to play for a big club like Barcelona, Stoichkov feels that the media, opponents and referees are going to target him due to his reputation.

"I have read about the transfer," said Stoichkov "He seems a really good player to me, one of the best forwards, with the character required to play for the biggest clubs - but the bites are going to be a problem!"

"He is marked for the rest of his life. To play at Barca with what he has done is a problem. Every opponent and the referees and the press will make his life difficult.

"He will have to play with provocation and media attention, which will leave him in permanent tension."

Stoichkov claimed he was targeted after he infamously stamped on the foot of referee Ildefonso Urizar Azpitarte during a match against Real Madrid in 1990.

"I made a mistake with the stamp on Urizar and what came afterwards was very hard," he said.

"What is going to come to Luis Suarez will be the same. Opposition players will provoke you, they will look for violent reactions, try to get you out of the game."
