Under Simeone , Atlético collected 90 points in La Liga, surpassing its 1996 record of 87, making the 2013–14 season the most successful in club history.[30]. In the summer of 2014, Chelsea acquired Diego Costa, Filipe Luís and Thibaut Courtois from Atlético , and also David Villa moved to the MLS.

If ever a coach and a player were made for each other then it's Diego Simeone and Luis Suarez. The thought of them working in harness this season is likely to cut Atletico Madrid's price for the title and excite the club's fans in ways not seen since they bought back Diego Costa from Chelsea. And that's before they even contemplate the prospect of Costa and Suarez in tandem.

At the end of last season Simeone's nose twitched when it became clear Barcelona were booting out their third all-time highest scorer. He had always wanted the club to sign Suarez and had, in the same breath, always seen it as impossible. The deal still looked very hard to make work.

Atletico had no money to spend on transfers and unless big earners left then there were no funds to pay the 33-year-old either. He became even more pessimistic when Suarez appeared bound for Juventus.

But things have taken several unexpected turns in the last two weeks. Suarez's move to Juventus was scuppered by Serie A's stricter rules on players being registered as European.

In Spain Suarez counted as a European Community player because his wife has an Italian passport. In Italy that was not enough. He needed to get a European passport. He had never bothered to apply for Spanish citizenship so he tried to rush through the process in Italy.

Barcelona crisis continues! Club's directors 'threaten to quit'

  Barcelona crisis continues! Club's directors 'threaten to quit' Barcelona have been in a state of crisis this summer amid the coronavirus crisis crippling their finances while they were left to pick up the pieces following the huge fall-out from the Lionel Messi transfer saga. Luis Suarez had been given the green light to leave but according to Onda Cero, there has been a significant split in the Barcelona boardroom over the club's choice to allow the experienced striker to join their La Liga rivals.

Barcelona have sold striker Luis Suarez to LaLiga rivals Atletico Madrid for €6million "in variables", the Blaugrana have confirmed. The 33-year-old was in On Wednesday, Atletico agreed to send Alvaro Morata back to Juventus on loan, paving the way for Suarez to be added to Diego Simeone 's squad.

With Juventus fearing he would not be able to do so in time to register for the new season, new coach Andrea Pirlo, expressed his preference to move for his former team-mate, Alvaro Morata.

The 27-year-old was unhappy at Atletico Madrid where he has never been able to convince Simeone that he should be the club's first-choice centre-forward.

He was upset at being left out of Atletico's Champions League quarter-final with Leipzig and his representatives made it known he was open to the right sort of offer. Juve, where he had always been happy, was just that offer.

With Morata edging towards Turin, suddenly the red sea was parting and Simeone could see the promised land on the other side. If Morata moved to Italy it would free up a salary that could be spent on Suarez. He would still need to arrive as a free agent but Barcelona had promised the player as much after his historic six seasons at the club.

Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu's capacity to move the goalposts according to who is trying to score the goal make the club a very difficult institution to deal with and that essential free transfer is still in the balance, but Atletico fans are already imagining how their XI might look next season.

Joao Felix has already reminded everyone why he was signed for a record £114million fee last summer with his Champions League quarter-final performance against Leipzig and subsequent games for Portugal. What he lacks in maturity, physical presence and consistency, Suarez would more than make up for. That would be the strike partnership if Suarez arrives.

Luis Suarez completes move to Atletico Madrid on two-year deal

  Luis Suarez completes move to Atletico Madrid on two-year deal The 33-year-old has completed his emotional farewell from Barcelona by signing a two-year deal at Atletico Madrid. The Uruguayan striker ended his Barcelona career as the club's third-highest goalscorer of all time, netting 198 goals in 283 appearances for the Catalans. The striker looked like he was heading to Juventus and even took an Italian language test in Perugia in order to get residency ahead of a proposed move to the Serie A champions.

The Uruguayan may lack pace, more so than ever at 33, but with Atletico also boasting winger Yannick Carrasco and attacking midfielder Marcos Llorente that is not something that is missing from the Simeone machine.

There are concerns over Suarez's knees but those close to him say he feels he can go on for several more seasons. It might not be the best thing for him but such is his desire to squeeze the last drop out of his career it is what he intends to do.

An Atletico with Suarez would probably line up in a 4-4-3 with Suarez, Joao Felix and either Carrasco or Llorente in front of a three-man midfield of Thomas Lemar, Saul Niguez and Koke (providing Lemar does not end up at Arsenal with Uruguayan Lucas Torreira going the other way).

With a third Uruguayan in the centre of his defence, providing Jose Gimenez does not end up at Manchester City, and Jan Oblak his goalkeeper, Simeone will feel he has a team to win the league.

Barcelona supporters meanwhile will be feeling they have been in this situation before.

David Villa joined Atletico from Barcelona in 2013 and scored 13 goals in 36 games as Simeone's side won the league. This would be different and potentially worse if Suarez were to continue his scoring rate. Last season, with 21 goals, he would have been Atletico's top scorer, and that in a campaign interrupted by a knee operation.

Suarez's arrival sets up another interesting prospect: Suarez up front alongside Costa. Liverpool looked at Costa when they sold Suarez to Barcelona in 2014. The two are similar in many ways although the Brazilian, in his prime, could always run in behind teams on quick counter-attacks better than Suarez whose goal record is far superior.

Could they really be let loose on the rest of Europe in the Champions League? With Morata gone Simeone might not have to lose another striker from his wage bill so Costa could stay.

Even if there is a desire to get rid there has been little interest in him so far this summer.

If he stays it would make sense for him to be used in rotation with Suarez than alongside him. But it would be another option for Simeone to use them occasionally as a pair. Every time he wanted to go at a rival with both barrels, he would have the firepower to do exactly that.
