Luis Suarez has agreed a pre-contract deal to join Uruguayan club Nacional as a free agent, the former Liverpool and Barcelona striker said on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old striker started his professional career at Nacional before joining Dutch side FC Groningen in 2006.

“First of all, I wanted to thank you for the love through all the messages that my family and I have received over the past few days, which has been overwhelming. It touched our hearts at that time when we had to take a decision,” he wrote on Twitter.

“And it was impossible to waste this opportunity to play again at Nacional and we have a pre-agreement with the club.

“In the next few hours the details will be finalized and we hope that the agreement that we all want will be reached and that we can all enjoy this new stage and see each other in the coming days.”

Suarez is Uruguay’s all-time top scorer with 68 goals in 132 games since 2007.

He played for Ajax Amsterdam as well as Liverpool and Barca before leaving Atletico Madrid at the end of last season.
