Where will he sign? This question has been widely asked this summer at Barça, where Lionel Messi has long left doubts about his future in Catalonia. Even though he never asked to leave, Luis Suarez was faced with the same question, while Ronald Koeman would like to get rid of him. Discussions were very advanced with Juventus but not yet completed, so Athletico Madrid jumped on the occasion and achieved this good deal.
Inter Miami was also actively trying to sign Suarez. According to ESPN, the MLS franchise would have made an XXL offer to the Uruguayan striker, which he would have refused. David Beckham’s club is said to have offered a 4-year contract with an annual salary of 8 million euros, or $ 9.5 million, to the former Liverpool which would have made him the highest-paid player of MLS history (owned by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his $ 7.2 million). The record finally was broken by Gonzalo Higuain, who landed in Florida with a salary of $ 8.8 million.
