Brazilian team Gremio welcomes Luis Suarez on free transfer

Luis Suarez, a striker from Uruguay, has signed a free transfer agreement to play for Brazilian Serie A team Gremio through the end of 2024.

The 35-year-old former player, who played for Liverpool, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid, went back to his boyhood club Nacional in July and stayed there for three months.

During his second spell with the team, which resulted in them winning the Uruguayan championship, he scored eight goals in 16 games.

On January 17, Gremio will play their first match of 2023 against Sao Luiz.

The Porto Alegre-based team was elevated from Brazil’s Serie B during the 2022 campaign, which finished in November.

Suarez stated on Twitter: “Getting ready for this gorgeous challenge at Gremio; I can’t wait to be there and take it all in.”

Uruguay was eliminated in the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar because the striker did not score in any of his three appearances for his nation.
