Luis Suarez insisted he will always remain a Barcelona fan in an emotional farewell press conference. Barca announced on Wednesday that they had reached agreement with LaLiga rivals Atletico Madrid for the 33-year-old striker. 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 ($94million), shortly after he had been banned for four months by FIFA for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup in Brazil. He won 13 major trophies during his six seasons at Camp Nou, including four LaLiga titles, four Copa del Reys and the Champions League.
