Transfer news: Barcelona deflect chance to provide update on Luis Suarez and Alexis Sanchez deals
Liverpool striker Suarez is understood to be on the verge of completing his move to the Nou Camp
Barcelona turned down the opportunity to provide an update on the futures of Luiz Suarez and Alexis Sanchez during a press conference today.
Sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta was in attendance at the unveiling of new signing Claudio Bravo during which he was inevitably asked about the duo.
The latest reports suggest Suarez is on the verge of completing his move to the Nou Camp, with a fee in the region of £62m agreed between the Catalan side and Liverpool.

His arrival will trigger the exit of Sanchez who is being targeted by Liverpool, along with Arsenal and Juventus. It's suggested that the Chile winger would prefer a move to the capital if he is to come to the Premier League.
With so much talk surrounding the forwards, Zubizarreta opted not to add to it today.
He said: "We are working towards building the best squad possible before the transfer window shuts and it's positive that people (from the club) are travelling (in order to sign players) but it's important that we only communicate official deals.
"When we have reached one, we will announce it."
When asked about Sanchez, Zubizarreta added: "There is nothing new to report. We will announce deals when they are done. Right now, we have two Chileans in our squad."

The second Chilean is that of Bravo who was being unveiled. The goalkeeper was also successful in giving little away.
"He (Sanchez) told me that Barca was a marvellous club and that I had to take this opportunity and enjoy it," said Bravo.
"But we didn't talk about being at Barcelona together, we were only focused on the World Cup."
