Luis Suarez’s time in Europe may be coming to an end, with suggestions that MLS club Inter Miami and Brazilian Corinthians are interested in recruiting the veteran striker.
After a glittering club career at Ajax, Liverpool and Barcelona, the Uruguay national team player has had renewed success with Atletico Madrid over the past two seasons.
Suarez scored 21 goals in 32 La Liga matches in 2020/21 when Diego Simeone’s team won the title for the first time since 2014. This season he has already found the net seven times in 12 starts, although Atletico are a bit out of pace in their efforts to retain the title.
The 34-year-old’s current contract expires in June 2022. According to journalist Ekrem Konur, this will be the point when he leaves Europe, 17 years after first exchanging Uruguay for the Netherlands.
Inter Miami are believed to have already offered Suarez a two-year contract, while the Brazilian giants Corinthians are also said to be “monitoring” his situation closely.

In order for Miami to facilitate a deal, they would have to work on reshaping their list. The Herons already have three designated players (DP) in Gonzalo Higuain, Rodolfo Pizarro and Blaise Matuidi – the signing of the latter put the club in hot water after they failed to meet the MLS list.
One of those players would either have to leave or have his contract bought to let Suarez in through the door, while Miami already has spending restrictions in place as punishment for the Matuidi saga.
Higuain is likely to remain, but Pizarro has been linked with a return to the Liga MX recently, while Matuidi was left unprotected by Miami during the recent MLS Expansion Draft.
