Luis Suárez is now an Atlético Madrid player having become surplus to requirements at Barcelona.

Suárez was one of the highest-paid players at Barça and after being told he was not in Ronald Koeman’s plans, the Uruguayan came close to joining Juventus.

However, issues obtaining an Italian passport means the 33-year-old will instead link up with Diego Simeone at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The former Liverpool hit-man moves to Madrid on a free transfer and he has signed a two-year contract. The move is pending a medical.
