Luis Suarez wants to return to FC Barcelona this summer as he nears the end of his Atletico Madrid contract., according to reports.
The club’s third all-time top scorer memorably netted 195 goals for the Blaugrana in a highly-successful six-year tenure that took in the 2014-2015 treble under Luis Enrique alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar, and a total of four La Liga and Copa del Rey titles overall.
When Ronald Koeman arrived in 2020, however, on the cusp of a new season, the Uruguayan was famously forced to leave Catalonia and wound up at Atletico Madrid.
Firing Atleti to their first top-flight title in seven years, ‘Luisito’ found a second wind on Diego Simeone’s watch and achieved the ultimate revenge against his old club as previously seen with David Villa.
According to El Chiringuito, though, ‘El Pistolero’ wants to return to Barca at the end of his two-year deal on June 30 and does not plan to renew at the Wanda Metropolitano after falling out of favor and down the pecking order to the likes of Matheus Cunha, Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann.
The striker is now 35 years of age, and it’s clear he is slowing down after a difficult year for Atletico.
