Five possible moves for Luis Suarez if Atletico Madrid transfer falls through including Ajax and Leeds

LUIS SUAREZ has been told he has no future at Barcelona – while potential moves to Juventus and Atletico Madrid appeared to have fallen apart.

The Uruguayan striker, 33, was told to leave the Nou Camp by new boss Ronald Koeman in a blunt, two-minute phonecall.

Suarez was said to have been left "very upset" with his Barcelona career in tatters.

The Uruguayan was on the brink of a move to Juventus only for the Serie A champions to pull the plug over passport issues.

Atletico Madrid quickly looked to take advantage, but that deal could also fall through with Los Rojiblancos "blacklisted" by Barca.

SunSport takes a look at FIVE potential new clubs for Suarez…


SUAREZ played for the Dutch giants between 2007 and 2011, before his big move to Liverpool.

And Ajax are claimed to have already bid £13.5million to bring their former star back to Amsterdam.

But they have since slipped behind the likes of Atletico and Juve in the list.

Suarez scored 111 goals in 159 games during his time at Ajax.


FOLLOWING his three-and-a-half years at Ajax, Suarez was tasked with replacing Fernando Torres at Liverpool in January 2011.

The Uruguayan scored 69 times in just 110 Premier League games – arguably enjoying his peak years at Anfield.

A return to Liverpool now would likely see him form part of a star-studded rotation including Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Jurgen Klopp is desperate to add attacking reinforcements to his Premier League title-winning squad, with the likes of Divock Origi, Rhian Brewster and Takumi Minamino his back-up striking options.

For just £13.5m, or thereabouts, Klopp could get plenty of bang for his buck.

The signing of winger Diogo Jota lessens Liverpool's need for more attacking talent somewhat, but his experience could still be invaluable.


OWNED by David Beckham, Inter Miami finally made their first marquee signing earlier this summer in landing Blaise Matuidi.

Now Becks and Co could make a move for Suarez to lead their line in the 2021 MLS season.

The only issue with the American side would be wages, with all teams having a set salary cap.


LEEDS certainly haven't struggled for goals this season – having scored seven in their opening two games.

But Marcelo Bielsa is an ambitious coach – having previously looked to sign Suarez's Uruguay team-mate Edinson Cavani.

The Elland Road chief could now turn his attention to Suarez himself with the Barcelona striker left in limbo.

NEYMAR, Kylian Mbappe and Suarez… that's a front-three to strike fear into any opponent's hearts.

The French side have been linked with a move for the Barcelona man to replace Edinson Cavani.

The Ligue 1 champions will need a replacement and Suarez could be the perfect fit, having already had experience of playing alongside Neymar at Barcelona.

With Kylian Mbappe having been linked with a move to Liverpool next summer, Suarez could be brought in to lessen the blow.


AMIDST all of the European giants linked, there are a host of other surprise names in contention to sign Suarez.

Qatari side Al-Arabi have been linked with a move, while a number of other clubs in the Far East, including Chinese Super League sides, are thought to be keen.

Suarez could also join the likes of Andres Iniesta, Lukas Podolski and Fernando Torres in enjoying late-career stints in Japan.
