Suarez joins Atletico Madrid

Luis Suarez Joins Atletico Madrid from Barcelona in Deal Worth €6m

The Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez has joined Atletico Madrid from Barcelona in a deal worth 6 million Euros.

Suarez left after six successful seasons at the Camp Nou in which he won four La Liga titles, the Champions League and the European Golden Shoe.

Suarez during his tenure after leaving English outfit Liverpool scored 198 goals for Barcelona, winning 13 trophies in total at the club.

A statement on Barcelona’s website read: “FC Barcelona and Atlético Madrid have reached an agreement for the transfer of the player Luis Suarez. The Madrid club will pay FC Barcelona 6 million euros in variables.”

“FC Barcelona would like to publicly express their gratitude to Luis Suarez for his commitment and dedication and wishes him all the best for the future.”

Confirming his departure from Camp Nou, Atletico Madrid took to Twitter to announce their agreement for the player with Barcelona.

Suarez departure means the end to the once formidable force of the ‘MSN’ attack including Messi, Suarez and Neymar who now plies his trade at PSG.

Messi is now the only remaining member of the MSN trio.

Just this week, Messi has lost two of his closest teammates this summer in Suarez and Arturo Vidal, the latter joining up with compatriot Sanchez at Inter Milan.

But Ronald Koeman’s side have a young attacker who they are very excited about in Ansu Fati, and if Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele can provide better support to Messi this season, then Suarez won’t be missed at the Camp Nou.
