JUVENTUS will look to seal a bargain deal for Luis Suarez by only paying Barcelona performance-related bonuses, reports claim.
The former Liverpool striker has been told by Nou Camp boss Ronald Koeman he can find a new club.

Andrea Pirlo, who was the shock replacement for Maurizio Sarri last month, wants to bring in the 33-year-old forward.
Gianluca Di Marzio reports that talks are ongoing between Serie A champs Juve and Barcelona.
It is claimed Suarez is seeking a severance package from Barca chiefs.
And the good relationship between the two clubs is likely to lead to a deal being completed without too many hitches.
One of those areas of contention, though, is pay.
Di Marzio says a small payment could be made to Barca in the form of a bonus related to how Suarez performs.
Juventus are understood to have already agreed personal terms with the Uruguay ace.
He is set to earn £256,000 a week in Turin.
Former Old Lady star Claudio Marchisio recently hinted Suarez was on his way to Italy.
The 34-year-old, who played for the club from 2005 until 2018, shared a photograph of himself.
He added the caption: “Welcome September! Aspettando @LuisSuarez?!? #Turin”, meaning “waiting for Suarez”.
Suarez has reportedly been in touch with Juve chief Pavel Nedved to discuss a move.
New Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo is also said to be a huge fan of the Uruguay star.
Should he complete the transfer to Turin, he will link-up with old rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
