Although it emerged that there were doubts at Atletico Madrid over whether to sign Luis Suarez, ‘Mundo Deportivo’ says that they have ruled out going for him at the moment.
The problem is that the player, who will leave Barca, earns around 20 million euros a year.

Atletico are not going to buy Luis Suarez, at least not for now. In recent weeks, there were reports the Atletico Madrid board were interested given the problems he has been having while trying to join Juventus. However, ‘Mundo Deportivo’ says that ‘Los Colchoneros’ do not think it is financially viable.
The reason is that he earns around 20 million euros per season. To be able to pay him this amount, several footballers would have to leave first. One of them will be Diego Costa, who, regardless of whether Suarez joins or not, is very likely to depart.
But could the club change their mind? Yes. The Catalan paper said that if the club’s transfer policy means they have enough money to sign him, they may do so. He is liked by Diego Simeone.
That leads us to another problem. Barca need to let Suarez go as soon as possible in order to balance the books and so that they can sign the players Koeman wants.
‘Mundo Deportivo’ also explains that the problem is purely financial. Luis Suarez has been wanted by Atletico since he was playing for Ajax in the Eredivisie. In fact, they tried to get him then and when he was playing for Liverpool.
Atletico’s scouts have lots of reports about him and he fits a type of player they could need soon. Alvaro Morata’s departure could lead to Suarez being signed because Juventus would.
