Luis Suárez exchanges FC Barcelona for Atlético Madrid. The Uruguayan signed a contract in the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday. It is still unknown for how many years he has been associated with his new club.

Atlético is Suárez’s fifth employer in Europe

The 33-year-old Suárez still had a contract with Barcelona until mid-next year, but did not appear in the plans of the new trainer Ronald Koeman.

After Suárez was told that leaving Barcelona was the best option, Ajax and Juventus, among others, were mentioned as possible new employers.

However, the Amsterdammers never seemed to make a really serious attempt. A transition to Serie A reportedly bounced because Suarez allegedly committed fraud on a language test required for an Italian passport.

Atlético pays an amount of 6 million euros for Suárez. The ‘Rojiblancos’, together with Real Madrid, are Barcelona’s main competitors for the championship in La Liga.

Suárez started his career in his own country at Nacional and was brought to Europe by FC Groningen in 2006. After a season in Groningen, he switched to Ajax, where he grew into a high-scoring striker and captain.

The team from Amsterdam sold Suárez in January 2011 for more than 25 million euros to Liverpool. The English in turn received no less than 81 million euros from Barcelona for the attacker 3.5 years later.

On behalf of the Catalan club, Suárez scored no less than 198 goals in 283 official matches. With Barcelona he won, among other things, the Champions League in 2015 and four national titles.
