Luis Suarez may enlist the services of his lawyers after Barcelona backtracked on a verbal agreement allowing him to move to Atletico Madrid, according to ESPN's Sam Marsden and Moises Llorens.

It has been revealed that Suarez will reportedly face a SIXTY PER CENT wage drop after joining Atletico Madrid .

Luis Suarez 's hopes of signing for the Rojiblancos are on hold with the Barca board unwilling to sell him to a direct rival.

The Uruguayan and Atletico Madrid were therefore clear to negotiate and agreed to terms on a free transfer. The two parties hoped to confirm the switch soon after Alvaro Morata's anticipated move to Juventus was completed, as reported by Marsden and Llorens.

However, Barcelona reneged on the agreement with the 33-year-old after hearing Suarez was set to join a Spanish rival. The club is reluctant to strengthen Atletico while paying a part of Suarez's salary until next June.

Suarez is reportedly frustrated with Barcelona for backtracking on the deal and is confused by their stance after being told he wasn't part of manager Ronald Koeman's plans and excluded from preseason matches. He still wants to join Atleti and is considering holding a news conference with his lawyers to explain his stance if Barcelona doesn't grant his move to the Spanish capital.

In addition to warring with Barcelona, Suarez is under investigation after suspicions he cheated on an Italian language test - one of the steps required to receive a passport. Teachers were allegedly prepared to ease Suarez's route to acquiring citizenship ahead of a potential transfer to Juventus despite the player's struggles with the language.

MADRID — Vinícius Júnior scored after coming off the bench as Real Madrid defeated Valladolid 1-0 on Wednesday for its second win in a row in the Spanish league, while Atlético Madrid was held to a scoreless draw against promoted Huesca in a disappointing first start for Luis Suárez. Vinícius Júnior netted the winner midway through the second half after Madrid’s forwards struggled again in attack. The young Brazilian broke the deadlock from close range after a defensive mistake by Valladolid defenders inside the area. He had been on the field for less than 10 minutes after replacing striker Luka Jovic, who missed another chance to impress as a starter.
