Luis Suarez’s European career will come to an end after reaching an agreement with his boyhood club Nacional. The player spent 15 years in Europe, playing for Groningen, Ajax, Liverpool, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid.
After his two-season contract with Atletico Madrid in Spain expired, he became a free agent and was considering joining a number of teams. This led to a spike in calls from Nacional supporters pleading with him to return to his first team.
Moving back home to Nacional will provide Suarez with an emotional full-circle completion of his career journey while still affording him the chance to play in high-level South American competitions.
Luis Suarez has been among the top strikers in the world since moving to Europe in 2007 as a 20-year-old teenager, establishing himself as one of the most devastating front men on the planet. He was one of the game’s most productive attackers of all time with 437 goals in 695 appearances over 15 years in Europe.
