Luis Suárez joins a Uruguayan squad
The 35-year-old striker wrote a message on Twitter stating that the transaction was now official one day after announcing that both parties had reached a pre-agreement. The parties kept the terms of the agreement’s finances and duration a secret.
Suárez altered his profile picture on social media to one of him wearing the white, blue, and red of Nacional, one of the most well-liked clubs in Uruguay.
I’m glad to be back at @Nacional wearing my shirt! Suárez composed. “Many thanks for your help! Until then, bye.
Also announced by Nacional was Suárez’s return to the team where he made his professional debut in 2005.
The squad yelled, “We’re glad you’re home!”
Upon becoming a free agent after his two-season contract with Atletico Madrid in Spain expired, Suárez 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.
With 68 goals throughout 132 games, he holds the record for most goals scored by a member of the Uruguayan national team. Ajax in the Netherlands, Barcelona in Spain, and Liverpool in England are a few of the other European teams he has played for.
When Suárez expressed amazement at the club’s lack of contact, Nacional claimed on its website that talks with the striker had picked up momentum weeks earlier.
According to reports in the Uruguayan media, Suárez will land in Montevideo on Sunday evening, and a caravan will transport him from the airport to the stadium where his formal introduction will take place.
