Barcelona confirm Luis Suarez transfer to Atletico Madrid. He had one more year to run on the contract he signed in 2016.
Atletico Madrid are set to sign striker Luis Suarez from La Liga rivals Barcelona after the two clubs reached an agreement for a £5.5m deal.

“FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have reached an agreement for the transfer of the player Luis Suarez,” read a statement on Barca’s official website. “The Madrid club will pay FC Barcelona 6m euros in variables.
“FC Barcelona would like to publicly express their gratitude to Luis Suarez for his commitment and dedication and wishes him all the best for the future.
