  • Luis Suarez is poised to join Argentine giants River Plate in a free transfer
  • River Plate president confirmed talks have already been held between the club and the 35-year old striker
  • Suarez will be a free agent at the end of June when his contract at Atletico Madrid runs out

Luis Suarez’s Premier League return is now looking unlikely after it emerged that the Uruguay international has been courted by a South American club.

Argentine giants River Plate have started talks with Suarez, barely days after his exit from Atletico Madrid was confirmed.

In a few weeks, Suarez will officially become a free agent, and there were reports that he was set to join the Premier League.

Aston Villa was his most likely destination, as he would be reunited with his former teammate Steven Gerrard, who is now working as the Villa manager.

But after two years at Atletico Madrid, Suarez could be tempted away from Europe, against his initial intentions.

As reported by Daily Mail, the Buenos Aries outfit are keen on Suarez’s signature, and are willing to offer him a deal worth £4million-a-year.

The club’s president Jorge Brito recently disclosed that initial talks had already been done with Suarez.

Spanish newspaper SPORT further reports that a meeting between River Plate officials and Suarez in Paris, but nothing was concluded.

Suarez fell down the pecking order at Atletico Madrid towards the end of the 2021/22 season, with Diego Simeone preferring the likes of Angel Correa, Antoine Griezmann, Joao Felix and Matheus Cunha upfront.

Regardless, he was accorded a befitting farewell recently by the club which he helped win the La Liga in his first season.
