Free agent Luis Suárez claims he has had offers from two Mexican clubs, but the Uruguay striker is determined to find a new home in Europe ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.

The 35-year-old striker had a move to Argentine side River Plate lined up, but their elimination from the Copa Libertadores at the hands of Vélez Sarsfield on Wednesday put paid to that deal.

“The truth is that I prefer to wait a while longer here (Europe), see what possibility could arise and then make the decision with the options that exist,” Suárez told the sport890 radio station in his native country.

“The same in Mexico, possibilities have arisen, the option that there was was from Toluca, but with the issue of height with one’s age, one is aware of that and it is complicated.

“They told me from Cruz Azul that Diego Aguirre was there.”

As for Los Millonarios, the former Atlético Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool star said: “I was waiting for this possibility of River in the Libertadores that excited me a lot, but unfortunately it falls due to a matter of sports competitiveness.”

After leaving Atlético when his contract expired in June, Suárez insists it will now be a “maximum of two weeks” before he comes to a final decision.
