'Suarez Wants To Come To MLS'

"Hopefully he'll play for the Sounders", Lodeiro said, adding that he had given Suarez a shirt when on worldwide duty.

Lodeiro stated that It's just a matter of time for Suarez to play in the MLS. The Uruguayan is turning 33 next year and sooner or later, the La Liga giants will have to look out for a world-class replacement for Suarez, who has been huge for the Catalan giants.

Suarez had joined Barcelona from Liverpool in a deal which was reported to be around at €80 million way back in 2014 and he has been splendid for them ever since.

FC Barcelona and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez could soon be joining Major League Soccer (MLS) if his national teammate Nico Lodeiro is to be believed. "His dream was always to play for Barcelona, but sooner or later he'll come to MLS". "He always asks me about the league. He is playing at a great level and he feels comfortable there". Well hopefully! He likes the league. I hope he can also play for Seattle Sounders.

"I think you need to convince Barcelona".

With Lodeiro struggling to communicate with the Sounders General Manager, Garth Lagerwey, while negotiating his transfer during an global camp, Suarez took the phone and acted as a translator.

"He told me that he might come in seven years", Lagerwey joked. "I told him we'd love to have him whenever he was ready, but it was just a amusing little anecdote along the way".
