Luis Suarez Had A Manchester United Clause In His Barcelona Contract

Luis Suarez has been allowed to leave Barcelona on a free on the basis he didn't join specific clubs.

Having appeared close to moving to Juventus before he was accused of cheating on the Italian exam that he passed, The Uruguayan is set to sign for Atletico Madrid after the Blaugrana agreed to terminate his contract.

However, according to ESPN, he wouldn't have been able to join the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain as part of an arrangement that prohibited from doing so.



After Atletico allowed Alvaro Morata to return to Juventus on loan, they are on the verge of confirming the capture of Suarez on a two-year deal.

As per BBC, Los Rojiblancos are poised to pay Barcelona a 6 million nominal fee due to certain variables such as Champions League qualification being achieved, with Suarez taking a fifty per cent pay cut at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Suarez was in tears as he left Barcelona's training ground for the last time yesterday and the club are holding a special farewell event and press conference today to commemorate his service.


Having arrived from Liverpool in a £74 million deal six years ago, Suarez went on to score 198 goals in 283 appearances and is placed third in the all-time top goalscorers list at the club - with only Lionel Messi and Cesar ahead of him in the rankings.

He also contributed further with 109 assists as he led the line with distinction.

During his time at the Nou Camp, the 33-year- old lifted a total of 13 trophies - including four La Liga titles, four Copa Del Reys, one Champions League and one Club World Cup.
