Suarez 'agrees terms' with Barca rivals

LaLiga

Luis Suarez looks set to leave FC Barcelona for Atletico Madrid on a free transfer after reportedly agreeing terms with the LaLiga rivals.

Suarez, 33, returned to Barcelona pre-season training despite initially being told that he's no longer part of the club's long-term plans under new head coach Ronald Koeman.

It was reported that Suarez was in talks over a move to Juventus but the players' salary demands is said to have steered the Serie A giants towards AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko.

As a result, Koeman made a u-turn on his stance over the Uruguayan superstar, suggesting that he would not freeze him out the first-team squad or banish him to train with the reserves.
