Luis Suarez breaks down in tears while leaving Barcelona training for ‘last time’ as Atletico transfer ‘confirmed’

LUIS SUAREZ broke down in tears after leaving Barcelona's training ground for the last time before his switch to Atletico Madrid.

The 33-year-old could be seen wiping his eyes behind the wheel of his car as he gets set to end his six-year stay with the Catalans.

After Ronald Koeman told the striker that he was no longer wanted at the Camp Nou, he began a frantic search for a new team.

However, it has not gone to plan for Suarez with a switch to Juventus ended due to passport delays.

Suarez was eligible to apply for a passport as his wife, Sofia Balbi, has Italian ancestors - but rules dictate he must pass his language test.

The former Liverpool star passed his exam, but - soon after - Juve pulled the plug on the deal and there have also been allegations of cheating.

Yet director Fabio Paratici claimed the Serie A side wouldn't have time to sort his passport before having to register him into their squad.

That brought LaLiga rivals Atletico into view, with the Spaniards set to allow Alvaro Morata to return to Juventus.

His exit will now pave the way for Memphis Depay to rejoin former Netherlands boss Koeman at Barca as his replacement.
