Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has spent six seasons at Camp Nou.
However, he has admitted he could soon move to the MLS.
Luis Suarez is “very happy” at Barcelona but admits he is open to the possibility of joining a Major League Soccer club. The Uruguay international is in his sixth season at Camp Nou and has another full campaign left to run on his current deal.
Suarez, who turns 33 in January, has been touted as a possible target for David Beckham’s Inter Miami franchise ahead of their MLS debut next year. Several established stars have made the switch Stateside in recent years, including the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney, while talented youngsters have been lured from South America.

“MLS is a competition which has grown a lot in the last few years and you can see that with the young players that have moved there in the last two years, above all the South Americans,” Suarez told ESPN. “That shows that the league wants to grow and not just bring in players of a certain age that are going to retire there. They look for that mix to make the league better.”
The Uruguayan scored in Barcelona’s 2-1 fightback at Leganes, as he headed in a pass from Lionel Messi in the 53rd minute to cancel out Youssef En-Nesyri’s opener. Substitute Vidal put Barcelona in front after a defensive error with 11 minutes left.
