Atletico sign Suarez from Barcelona for two years

Atletico Madrid have completed the signing of striker Luis Suarez from La Liga rivals Barcelona.

The Uruguay international signed a two-year contract with the club on Friday after passing his medical.

The 33-year-old joined Barca from Liverpool in 2014, winning the Champions League title in his first season in Spain.

Suarez also helped Barca to four league titles, scoring 198 goals in 283 appearances for the club.

Atleti have paid a nominal fee of no more than 6m euros for Suarez, the third highest goalscorer in Barcelona’s history.

Barca paid £74m to sign Suarez from Liverpool but their new coach Ronald Koeman told the Uruguayan last month that he was not in his plans.

The former Ajax striker had agreed a move to Italian champions Juventus but the deal fell through because of passport issues.

EPL: Aaron Ramsdale to join Arsenal’s rival, agrees deal

Barring any last minute changes, Arsenal’s goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, will leave the club after three years.

Ramsdale, who has fallen down the pecking order at the north London’s club, will be plying his trade with Arsenal’s rival, Newcastle United, next season.

Ramsdale, who joined Arsenal from Sheffield United for £24 million in 2021, is poised to join Newcastle during the summer transfer window.

He established himself as the club’s first-choice keeper, making 78 appearances over his first two seasons.

However, his position came under threat following David Raya’s loan arrival from Brentford.

This season, Ramsdale has had little playing time, featuring in just six Premier League games under Mikel Arteta.

With Raya expected to secure a permanent move to Arsenal, the club is reportedly open to offers for Ramsdale, who still has two years left on his contract.

Newcastle have emerged as the frontrunners to secure Ramsdale’s services.

According to Sky Sports’ James Green, the 25-year-old goalkeeper has agreed to a deal that will see him move to St James’ Park.

La Liga President confirms Mbappe to Real Madrid move

La Liga president Javier Tebas says Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe will join Real Madrid next season.

The 25-year-old France captain announced last week he is leaving PSG at the end of his contract this summer, without specifying his destination, and Madrid are poised to sign him after years of failed attempts.

 “He’s Madrid’s next season, yes,” Tebas told Argentine daily sports newspaper Ole on Monday. “If they’ve signed a five-year deal, he has five seasons of opportunity (to win the Champions League).”

Mbappe is set to join a star-studded Madrid team led by Brazil’s Vinicius Junior and England international Jude Bellingham.

Los Blancos strolled to the Spanish title and are in the Champions League final at Wembley against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

”(Mbappe) is one of the best players in the world, but Vinicius and Bellingham are there too, Madrid will have a great squad,” continued Tebas. “But that does not guarantee you will win leagues.”

Mbappe is PSG’s all-time record scorer with 256 goals, having joined the club from Monaco in 2017 for 180 million euros ($194 million).

With PSG he won six French league titles but failed to earn Champions League glory, finishing as runners-up to Bayern Munich in 2020.

By joining record 14-time winners Real Madrid, Mbappe would increase his chances of finally earning club football’s most prestigious trophy.

The Serbia striker later had a goal disallowed for offside.
