Luis Suarez News
Football superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will feature in their fifth World Cup in Qatar 2022 and it is likely that it might be their last. Along with these two legends of the game who have dominated the tag of being the 'Best' for almost 15 years now, stars like Robert Lewandowski, Neymar Jr., Luis Suarez, Edison Cavani, Karim Benzema and many more are also likely to play their last FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Lionel Messi turned 35 on Thursday (June 24) and celebrated his birthday in style at an island in Spain. The star was joined by his close friends and former teammates like Cesc Fabregas, Luis Suarez along with their wives and girlfriends. Also, Messi's Argentina teammates including many PSG teammates were present at the birthday party of the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner.
The 34-year-old’s performance was another reminder of the mistake that Barca committed by letting him go in the transfer window given how they have struggled after his departure. Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas had recently claimed that Barca made an error by selling Suarez. Ronaldo eventually left Real as their all-time leading goal-scorer and currently plies his trade for Serie A giants Juventus.
Barcelona`s statement said Atletico will pay the Catalans six million euros ($7 million) in bonus payments to sign the 33-year-old. The Uruguay striker, who is Barca`s third all-time top scorer with 198 goals in all competitions, had a year left on his contract with the club. Suarez will replace Alvaro Morata in Atletico`s front line after the Spanish striker was loaned to Juventus for a season with an option to buy.
The squad also includes Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde, Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur and Inter Milan defender Diego Godin. There was no place for striker Edinson Cavani, who is yet to find a new club after parting ways with Paris Saint-Germain in June. Uruguay will face Chile in Montevideo on October 8 before meeting Ecuador in Quito five days later.
