Spanish club, Athletico Madrid have secured the services of Barcelona’s Uruguayan striker, Luis Suarez on a two-year deal for a fee of around £5.5m.
Suarez, who joined Barca in 2014, left as the club’s third highest scorer with 198 goals and won 13 trophies with them.
He made the switch to the capital club, Athletico Madrid, replacing Spanish player, Alvaro Morata who went on loan to Serie A side, Juventus.
Suarez is expected to pair with Diego Costa in an all new-look attack.
He was unveiled today as an Athletico player and in his first press conference, he said: “I’m joining Atlético Madrid with a lot of excitement, but I still haven’t thought about what it will be like to play against Barça. I haven’t fully digested it yet.”
Meanwhile his former teammate at Barca, Leo Messi wasn’t happy about his best friend leaving. He criticized the way, the club treated a player of Suarez’s calibre with levity in spite of his contributions and all he has achieved at the club.
Furious Messi, took to his Instagram handle and said:“You deserved to depart like what you are: one of the most important players in the club’s history. Not for them to kick you out like they have done. But the truth is nothing surprises me any more.”
