Suarez nearing Atletico Madrid move after breakthrough in talks with Barcelona


Luis Suarez Goal

Luis Suarez is closing in on a move to Atletico Madrid after the striker's representatives made a breakthrough in talks with Barcelona on Tuesday.

Suarez will receive a settlement from Barcelona after the final year of his contract at Camp Nouis terminated.

That will free the 33-year-old to join Diego Simeone's men on a two-year contract, which will be worth €9 million (£8m/$11m) per season and include a number of incentives.

The Uruguayan is set to travel to Madrid to undergo a medical in the comingdays and could even be in line to make his Atletico debut in Sunday's La Liga opener against Granada.

Suarez's move to Atletico appeared to be in some doubt afterBartomeuinitially decided that he was unwilling to allow the striker to join one of his side's chief rivals.

However, the Blaugrana president has softened his stance and everything now appears in place for the forward to move to the Spanish capital.

Suarez has looked destined to leave Barcelona following the arrival of new head coachRonald Koeman, who told the Uruguayan that he was not in his plans moving forward.

The veteran forward initially looked to be joining Juventus and even reached an agreement with theSerie Achampions overa contract, subsequentlytravellingto Italy for a language exam in order to get a passport.

On Sunday, though, Juventus sporting director Fabio Paraticiconfirmed that a deal for Suarez was off, and there are now questions over irregularities in Suarez's language exam.

Juventus did eventually manageto sign a new striker, landing Alvaro Morata from AtleticoMadrid on Tuesday on an initial 12-month loan deal, with the option for a second season and a permanent move for €45m(£40m/$52m).

Morata's departure will open up more minutes for Suarez, who leaves Barcelona having established himself as one of the club's all-time great strikers.
