Luis Suarez is set to move to Atletico Madrid after they agreed a fee with Barcelona.

Barca announced that they had agreed a deal which would see the Catalan club receive €6m.

Suarez joined Barca in 2014 from Liverpool and helped the club win four LaLiga titles, four Copa del Reys and the Champions League in 2015. 

The Uruguayan insisted he will always remain a Barcelona fan in an emotional farewell press conference.

"I want all the Culers (Barca fans) to know that I'll always be one more Culer, regardless of where I am," Suarez said on Barca TV.

"Thank you to all the fans for everything they have done supporting me, cheering me on from day one.

"The support I have had from everyone inside the Camp Nou, from the staff, a massive effort from everyone and this is so important to me and will always stay with me."

Amid all the upheaval at Barca this summer surrounding Lionel Messi's future, it emerged that Suarez did not feature in the plans of head coach Ronald Koeman, who replaced Quique Setien in August.

Suarez had appeared set to join Italian champions Juventus, but a move to Turin collapsed after complications over the Uruguayan's passport application.

Barcelona signed Suarez from Liverpool in July 2014 for £74million, shortly after he had been banned for four months by FIFA for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup in Brazil.

"I want to say that the club has always had such confidence in me since 2014 when they signed me," Suarez said.

"And the conditions (in which) I came and the mistake that I made, but they surrounded me with the confidence that they always had in me. It wasn't easy to accept this.

"The coaches and my team-mates, the way they accepted me when I came, it was amazing."

Suarez, hugely popular among the club's fans and in the dressing room, is third in Barca's all-time scoring list, with 198 goals in 283 games in all competitions.

He won 13 major trophies during his six seasons at Camp Nou, including four LaLiga titles, four Copa del Reys and the Champions League.

"All the people know the sacrifice I've made in these years to come to Barcelona and to play for the best team in the world," he added.

"I'm aware that we're at the end of an era, that I should be very proud of everything that we've done." A Barca statement read: "FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have reached an agreement for the transfer of the player Luis Suarez. The Madrid club will pay FC Barcelona €6m in variables.

"FC Barcelona would like to publicly express their gratitude to Luis Suarez for his commitment and dedication and wishes him all the best for the future."

The club also said there would be a farewell event for the player and a remote press conference on Thursday afternoon. 

Diego Simeone's Atletico were in the market for a striker after Alvaro Morata joined Juventus.
