Lionel Messi is staying at Barca at the moment. The same cannot be said for FC Barcelona’s other star striker in Luis Suarez of Salto, Uruguay. On Wednesday, Suarez signed a contract with Atletico Madrid.
Juventus have officially announced the signing of Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid, as the Spaniard returns to Turin on an initial loan move. Andrea Pirlo made a winning start to life as Juve coach this past weekend, as he watched on as his side picked up a 3-0 win over Sampdoria in their Serie A opener.
Most fans will generally support other teams from their country when they play in Europe unless there’s a huge rivalry there, and it looks like Barcelona will have financial reasons to hope Atletico Madrid do well in the Champions League in the next couple of years.
Luis Suarez’s transfer to Juventus is reportedly in doubt as he looks set to join Atletico Madrid instead. Alongside that, Sky Sports report on a bizarre incident involving Suarez’s bid to gain Italian citizenship, with the police now investigating the matter.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has contacted Arsenal about a potential transfer deal for Gunners midfielder Lucas Torreira. The Uruguay international has not lived up to expectations during his time at the Emirates Stadium and an exit makes sense for him at this stage, with La Liga possibly set to be his next destination.
Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has reportedly got a deal in place to seal a transfer back to former club Juventus. The Spain international has moved around a lot in recent years and is perhaps best known for majorly flopping during a recent spell at Chelsea.
