Uruguayan international, Luis Suarez, has joined Atletico Madrid from Barcelona.
The Ronald Koeman’s side confirmed in a statement after the two Spanish sides came to terms on a deal for the ex-Liverpool star on Wednesday night.
Atleti will pay Barcelona €6 million (£5.5m/$7m) to acquire the striker, who left Camp Nou after six seasons with the club.
Suarez had been heavily linked with Juventus in recent weeks as the Italian champions had been in the hunt for a striker, but the Bianconeri moved on to other targets after the forward was forced to go through a lengthy process of acquiring Italian citizenship, Goal reports.
“FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have reached an agreement for the transfer of the player Luis Suarez. The Madrid club will pay FC Barcelona €6 million in variables,” the Catalan club announced.
“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.”
