Barcelona confirm sale of Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid

Barcelona have confirmed an agreement for Luis Suarez to leave the club for Atletico Madrid.

33-year-old Suarez joins Atletico for €6m in variables, bringing to an end his six-year stay at Camp Nou.

Suarez will say goodbye to the Barcelona fans at 12:30 on Thursday. There will be a farewell ceremony followed by a press conference.

The Uruguayan joined Barcelona from Liverpool in the summer of 2014 and went on to win 14 major titles.

He leaves Barca as their third highest goal scorer in history with 198 goals in 283 games.

Initially, Suarez was expected to join Juventus but bureaucratic issues led to that deal being cancelled.

Instead, he links up with Diego Simeone at Atletico, following the same path as David Villa in 2013.
