Barcelona have agreed to let striker Luis Suarez join La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.
Suarez is not wanted at Barca and the Catalans were happy to release him for free, providing he did not join certain other top clubs.
The Uruguayan agreed terms on a reduced salary with Atletico after a move to Juventus fell through because of passport issues.
Barcelona chairman Josep Maria Bartomeu then blocked the deal because he did not wish to sell to a Spanish rival.
But, after meeting with Suarez’s representatives, the Catalan club have backed down, with the striker threatening to air his grievances to the media.
