Breaking: Luis Suarez joins Brazilian club


Former Barcelona and Liverpool player Luis Suarez has joined the Brazilian team Gremio.

After a brief stint, the striker left his hometown club Nacional in November.

But Suarez has now committed to his career’s SEVENTH club.

The South American powerhouses have signed him to a two-year contract.

“May the Gremio fans be prepared to enjoy these two fantastic years and try to achieve great things,” the ex-Liverpool player wished upon his arrival.

Fabrizio Romano claims that the 35-year-old turned down lucrative offers from the MLS and Saudi Arabia.

And it’s thought that his close friend Lionel Messi persuaded him to switch to Brazil.

Suarez began his playing career in Uruguay before joining Groningen in 2006 and moving to Europe.

His performance drew the eye of Dutch powerhouse Ajax, and his goals in Amsterdam led to a transfer to Liverpool.

Suarez spent three and a half years at Anfield and won just one trophy, the League Cup, but he still scored more than 80 goals.

After leaving for Barcelona in 2014, he experienced his best playing years, scoring nearly 200 goals while en route to 13 major awards.

Atletico Madrid, where he won his FIFTH La Liga title, was where he spent his final two years in Europe.

Later, but only on a temporary basis, he returned to Nacional in his native country.

And he will now make his debut for Brazilian club Gremio.
