Luis Suarez-Atletico Madrid

Luis Suarez prevented from joining Manchester United due to a clause in his contract.

Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez reportedly hasn’t had the chance to join Manchester United due to a special clause in his contract during his time at Barcelona.

The Catalan club, who signed the Uruguayan from Liverpool for £75m had written a special clause in his contract, which emphasized that he wouldn’t be able to join Man Utd or any of Manchester City, PSG and arch-rivals Real Madrid.

Suarez broke into the spotlight following his stellar stint at Anfield, where he emerged as one of the league’s best talents.

The Uruguayan’s transfer to Barca will always be a high point in his career as he grew in stature and became one of the elite strikers in Europe.

However, the Catalan club let go of the former Ajax man last summer following a disastrous 2019/20 season and Atletico Madrid turned out to be his destination.

Now, Barca must be regretting allowing Suarez to leave almost for free as he reinstated his form under Diego Simeone.

The 33-year-old has found the nets 10 times in La Liga in 14 appearances this season, only Lionel Messi has a better stat than Suarez among the current crop of Barca’s attackers.

Furthermore, Suarez has been considered as the best striker of his peers as he was able to have his hands at the European Golden Shoe twice in the last decade, outwitting the likes Messi and Ronaldo.
