sport news Luis Suarez completes move to Atletico Madrid on two-year deal after six years ...

Luis Suarez has completed his emotional farewell from Barcelona by signing a two-year deal at Atletico Madrid. 

The Uruguayan striker ended his Barcelona career as the club's third-highest goalscorer of all time, netting 198 goals in 283 appearances for the Catalans. 

The striker looked like he was heading to Juventus and even took an Italian language test in Perugia in order to get residency ahead of a proposed move to the Serie A champions.

But the former Barcelona man has completed a £5.5million to Diego Simeone's side after being told by new Catalans boss Ronald Koeman he was no longer required at the Camp Nou.

A statement from Atletico read: 'We welcome to our team one of the world’s most prolific strikers, who gives his all on the pitch and has proved his quality on the most demanding of stages.'

Despite missing out on the LaLiga title, Suarez ended the season well with Barcelona scoring 16 goals in 28 matches despite missing most of the season with a serious knee injury. 

However, Koeman told the Uruguayan in a reported one-minute phone call that his time at the Camp Nou would be coming to end, leaving the striker upset with both him and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

It appeared that Juventus would be the 33-year-old's next club and he travelled to to try and seal the move. The negotiations were marred by Suarez being accused of cheating in the language test required to seal his residency.

The striker then changed his mind about a move to the Serie A champions and will now line-up against his former side Barcelona later this season. 

Suarez said goodbye to the Catalan side in a press conference on Thursday which was attended by Barcelona stars including Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique.
