Luis Suarez has reportedly accepted to join Atletico Madrid after Barcelona terminated his contract as he can now join their rivals as a free agent, according to Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano.
It was gathered that the Uruguayan has already accepted by days to join Atlético Madrid as he now officially parts ways with Barça to move on as a free agent.
The Uruguayan is reportedly furious with the Barcelona new manager Ronald Koeman over his brutal sixty-second phone call to end his career at the Catalan club.
Koeman replaced sacked manager Quique Setién and he has been mandated by the club owners to ensure the club’s wage bill is reduced - and some players will need to leave.
Despite Suarez scoring at least 20 goals for the club in each of his six seasons since his arrival, the former Liverpool striker has his contract terminated.
And now latest reports have it that he has agreed personal terms with bitter rivals Atletico.
Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo are reporting that the 33-year-old has been offered a two-year contract while he has been in constant contact with Atletico CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin and manager Diego Simeone, which has convinced him that they believe in him.
However, the deal could linger on for a while as there are still some stumbling blocks to overcome as Suarez believes Barca should pay him the final year of his contract, which runs out in the summer of 2021.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Lionel Messi and Arturo were inseparable since the Chilean joined Barcelona in 2018 from Bayern Munich with both players visibly seen as friends both on and off the pitch.
As part of the ongoing massive clear out within the Blaugrana squad, Vidal was among the players new boss Ronald Koeman told to leave and now the 33-year-old has left the club to complete a deal with Inter Milan.
Messi's decision to stay at the club for another season will see a number of players axed to help fund his massive wages.
