    - Atletico Madrid have officially signed Luis Suarez from Barcelona, according to announcements from the two Spanish clubs, quoted by Reuters on Thursday.

    The transfer ended the Uruguay striker's season with Barcelona since signing in 2014 from Liverpool. Barca have said that Atletico will pay six million euros to sign the 33-year-old player.

    Barca's third all-time leading scorer, has one year left with the Catalonia club. Suarez will replace Alvaro Morata at Atletico's front line after the Spanish forward was loaned to Juventus for one season with the option to be permanent.

    Suarez left Barcelona after presenting the Champions League, four La Liga titles and four Copa del Rey trophies. He scored 198 goals for the club in all competitions. The player nicknamed El Pistolero is considered not included in the plans of new Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman, who wants to rejuvenate and rebuild the squad. Previously, 33-year-old midfielder Arturo Vidal also completed a transfer to Inter Milan. Suarez has become the third striker in recent years to switch between the two La Liga clubs after David Villa was sold to Atletico in 2013, while Antoine Griezmann moved to Barca last year. Previously, Suarez has also been linked with Serie A team Juventus and took the Italian exam in a bid to get an EU passport to qualify to play as a European player as Juve's non-EU player slots are already filled. However, Italian prosecutors said Tuesday they were investigating the results of a language test taken by Suarez on suspicion of cheating.
