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 AtlÃ©tico Madrid as he now officially part ways with BarÃ§a 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 SetiÃ©n and he has been mandated by the club owners to ensure the clubâs 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.
