Luis Suarez made his final appearance for Grêmio on Sunday, and despite reports that he is on his way to reuniting with his good friend Leo Messi at MLS' Inter Miami, the Uruguayan striker hinted that he might even be about to retire.
"I feel pain, my body speaks for itself. I want to have fun and then make a decision after a long career. I need to rest, enjoy my family. Fate will know where I will be in the future," Suarez said when discussing his future after the game. Last month, it was reported in his homeland that he had already signed for Inter Miami, where Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets, with whom the scorer collaborated at Barcelona, are also playing.
Suárez, who turns 37 next month, ended a successful year at Grêmio and said goodbye in style to the fans with a goal that sealed a 0-1 victory over Vasco da Gama. In 52 appearances in all competitions, he scored 27 goals and added 17 assists.
The club's official X page thanked him: "You wrote a beautiful chapter in our history. Wherever you are, you will live forever! It wasn't a dream. Hello to the main character in this chapter of our history."
