Luis Su rez moves from Barcelona to Atl tico Madrid
 
Madrid: Luis Su rez is staying in Spain after all. Barcelona said late Wednesday that it reached a deal with Atl tico Madrid for the transfer of the Uruguay striker for 6 million euros ( 7 million).

Su rez was let go by Barcelona following six mostly successful seasons in which he won 13 titles with the Catalan club. He leaves as Barcelona's third highest scorer ever with 198 goals, behind C sar Rodr guez (232) and Lionel Messi (634).

The 33-year-old Su rez had to find a new club after being told by incoming Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman that he was not in his plans. Koeman was asked to revamp the Barcelona squad after the embarrassing 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the Champions League in August.

Midfielder Ivan Rakitic already left for Sevilla after also being told he wasn't wanted anymore, and defender Samuel Umtiti is also expected to leave.

Messi, Su rez's longtime friend and teammate, wanted to leave but will stay after the club denied his request for a free transfer at the end of last season.

Barcelona said it wanted to publicly express its "gratitude to Luis Su rez for his commitment and dedication," and wished him "all the best for the future."

The club said Su rez will give a news conference on Thursday. He reportedly bid farewell to his teammates earlier Wednesday.

Spanish media said Barcelona had initially made an agreement with Su rez to allow him to leave for free, but later backtracked after it became known that he wanted to go to rival Atl tico. Su rez's lawyers had been negotiating with the Catalan club since Tuesday to try to make his move to Atl tico possible.

Su rez, who arrived in Barcelona from Liverpool in 2014, will be joining Atl tico's Argentine coach Diego Simeone, who has always praised Su rez and is also known to carry the same hard-working, never-give-up attitude as the Uruguayan striker.

Su rez had initially looked set to join Juventus in Italy, and had even taken a test to receive a European passport that could help him complete the move. But the deal fell through because the passport process reportedly would take too long, and Juventus decided to go after Atl tico's lvaro Morata, opening space for Su rez in Simeone's squad.

Simeone still has Diego Costa and Jo o F lix as its main attackers, but the duo only scored 14 goals combined for Atl tico last season, seven fewer than Su rez scored for Barcelona.

The Catalan club had already added young Portugal forward Francisco Trinc o this season. It still has Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Demb l and youngster Ansu Fati, who on Wednesday was officially added to the first team and had his buyout clause increased from 170 million euros ( 199 million) to 400 million euros ( 469 million).

Martin Braithwaite also is an option for Koeman up front, and the club reportedly was looking to eventually sign forwards Memphis Depay and Lautaro Mart nez.

Atl tico will make its Spanish league debut on Sunday against Granada at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. Atl tico's first two games were postponed because it played late into last season in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
