Luis Suarez reportedly agrees to rescind the final year of his contract at Barcelona, paving the way for him to leave the club and join Atletico Madrid.

Luis Suarez has reportedly agreed to rescind his contract at Barcelona, paving the way for him to leave the club in the near future.

Suarez was told earlier this summer that he does not feature in new manager Ronald Koeman's plans for the future, but an exit has been complicated by wrangling over the remaining year on his contract.

Suarez had wanted Barca to pay off that year in full if they wanted him to leave on a free transfer - something the Spanish giants were unwilling to do despite their desire to offload him.

However, RAC 1 claims that the 33-year-old has now agreed to rescind the final year of his deal amid interest linking him with a move to Atletico Madrid.

Juventus had been heavily linked with Suarez, with the Uruguay international even travelling to Italy to undergo a language test in an attempt to earn an Italian passport.

That deal has since collapsed, though, with Atletico now thought to be leading the race for his signature.

Suarez is Barcelona's third highest goalscorer of all time, netting 198 goals in 283 appearances for the club.
