Uruguay’s all-time top scorer Luis Suarez returns to Nacional after 17 years


Former Liverpool striker and Uruguay’s all-time top scorer Luis Suarez has confirmed he is returning to the club where he made his debut 17 years ago.

The 35-year-old forward announced the news on Twitter a day after he told fans he had a pre-agreement with Nacional in Montevideo.

On Wednesday, Suarez said the deal is now official and he changed his social media profile to one of himself wearing Nacional in white, blue and red.

“Proud to be wearing my shirt at @Nacional again!” Suarez wrote on Twitter. “Thanks everyone for the support! SEE YOU LATER.”

Nacional also confirmed Suarez’s return to the club where he started his professional career in 2005, but did not reveal any financial details or the length of the contract.

“Glad you’re home!” wrote the team in response to Suarez’s post.

The 35-year-old became a free agent in Spain after his two-year contract with Atletico Madrid expired and had considered signing with various teams.

He has played in La Liga since 2014, with a stint at Barcelona followed by two seasons at Atletico Madrid.

The forward is the Uruguay national team’s all-time leading scorer with 68 goals in 132 games.

When Suarez signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with Liverpool in 2011, he was the club’s most expensive signing at £22.8million. He won the League Cup in his first full season.

In 2014, he equaled the goalscoring record for a 38-game Premier League season and won his first European Golden Boot.

He joined Barcelona in a £64.98million transfer this summer.
