Luis Suarez is set to swap Merseyside for Catalunya this summer, but the Uruguay striker will continue to wear Liverpool's iconic colour next season.

Suarez is set to be announced as Barcelona's new £75 million striker in the coming days, but the Uruguayan - who will not be involved in any action for four months following his ban for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup - will still don a red shirt during the upcoming 2014/15 La Liga season.

The reason being that Luis Enrique's Barcelona have just unveiled their new attire which includes a 'crimson' away strip.

Having moved away from last season's disastrously garish yellow and red striped number, Suarez will now feel more at home in a red strip similar to the one he donned for the previous three years whilst plying his trade on Merseyside.

Though most Liverpool fans would have given anything to see Suarez playing in a red strip this season, it seems that this wasn’t quite what they had in mind.
