Luis Suarez In Tears After Leaving Barcelona's Training Ground For The Last Time

Luis Suarez was seen wiping away tears as he left Barcelona's training ground on Wednesday morning, with his move to Atletico Madrid expected to be confirmed in the coming hours.

The 33-year-old, who spent six years at the Catalan giants after joining from Liverpool for a reported £64.98 million, has agreed terms on a reduced salary with Atletico after a move to Juventus fell through.

He leaves as the club's third all-time top scorer (198) after a trophy-laden spell at the Camp Nou, where he lifted the Champions League in his first season, as well as four La Liga title's.

It was an understandably emotional farewell for Suarez and, as he left the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper training facility earlier, the Uruguayan wiped away tears as he drove away.

This summer has been an uncertain one for Suarez.

The 33-year-old, who scored 16 goals in 28 La Liga appearances last season. was left furious after the club's new manager Ronald Koeman told him he had no future at the Camp Nou.

That phone conversation between the pair lasted just 60 seconds, according to Spanish publication SPORT, who report that Suarez 'did not ask for more explanations, nor did the coach think it necessary to give them.'

He was told to be surplus to requirements at the Catalan giants and was reportedly told to find a new club.

A move to Juventus looked to be on the cards for weeks but it did not materialise as Atletico look set to secure the huge signing on a two-year deal.

His imminent arrival at Atleti comes just a day after Suarez was accused of cheating on his Italian exam in order to get an Italian passport, with police reportedly investigating the claims.
