Luis Suárez previously played for FC Barcelona alongside the memorable trio of Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr., contributing to the Catalans’ triumph in the treble-winning season of 2015. He is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in history, earning the nickname ‘El Pistolero’ for his prolific goal-scoring ability.
Currently, he is plying his trade for the Brazilian top-division club Gremio and has recently dazzled with a stunning performance in a match. Nevertheless, reports are circulating that the striker is set to reunite with his former teammate Lionel Messi in the MLS.
Luis Suarez stuns Botafogo with 14-minute hat-trick
The former Barcelona forward moved to his home continent, South America, from La Liga side Atletico Madrid, marking the end of nearly two decades of a phenomenal career playing for some of the most elite clubs and scoring over 300 goals in Europe. The Uruguayan international’s illustrious career includes stints at esteemed clubs such as Ajax Amsterdam, Liverpool, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid.
The 36-year-old joined Uruguayan club Nacional before moving to his current side Gremio the following season. Suarez netted a top-notch hat trick in just 14 minutes, stunning the opposition side Botafogo, the league toppers in Brazilian Serie A. Subsequently, he extended his goal tally to 23 goals with 16 assists in a total of 48 appearances in all competitions in Brazil.
The Uruguayan became the only player, aside from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, to secure the Spanish Golden Boot-Pichichi Award, scoring 40 goals in the 2015-16 season.
As a former Champions League winner with Barcelona, showcasing his scoring abilities, he remains as sharp as he was in his prime days. Despite struggling with fitness and injury concerns, he certainly hasn’t declined and could potentially add strength to the forward lines of Inter Miami.
Luis Suarez to Inter Miami rumors
Suarez’s recent goal-scoring rampage has left Inter Miami fans eagerly anticipating seeing him in action next season. According to reports, Inter Miami has already agreed to terms with the former Barcelona striker for a year-long contract starting next season. He is expected to leave the Porto Alegre-based club in December to join the MLS side, reuniting with his former Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets.
This season, Miami failed to qualify for the MLS playoffs leading to an early wrap-up of their campaign. They secured all three Barcelona stars this summer, with Lionel Messi’s arrival at DRV PNK Stadium inspiring his Spanish compatriots to join him in this new adventure. Soon, Luis Suarez will be a part of their expedition in the upcoming MLS season commencing in 2024.
