Gremio confirm the signing of Luis Suárez
The former Barcelona and Atlético Madrid striker has officially joined the Brazilian side.
Luis Suárez has officially signed for Brazilian side Gremio. The forward, who scored 147 goals in 191 games for FC Barcelona, has signed for 2 years with the club.
The club confirmed the news via their official Twitter account, in which they said: “He’s here! One of the greatest in the history of Uruguay, Luis Suárez arrives at the Tricolor to continue his illustrious career, now wearing our shirt! goal-scorer, multiple-champion, cup winner and fighter! Welcome Luisito!”
The forward left Spain after 8 years in 2022 to play for Nacional in his native Uruguay, where he scored 8 in 14 games. He signs for the Brazilian outfit after winning La Liga titles with both FC Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid.
He played for Uruguay at the Qatar World Cup 2022 and featured in all of Uruguay’s games, but he did not score. His only goal contribution came in the form of an assist against Ghana, but it was not enough to see his side advance past the first round due to other results in the group.
