Suarez joins Nacional on a free transfer following the expiration of his contract with Atletico Madrid.

The 35-year-old began his professional career in the Uruguayan team’s academy but was only able to make four first-team appearances before being signed by a club in Europe.

At the Camp Nou, Suarez and Messi played together for six years before the latter left on a free transfer to join La Liga rivals Atletico.

Last summer, Messi left Barcelona and transferred for free to join Paris Saint-Germain.

The Uruguayan admitted it was ‘difficult’ to accept the invitation to return to his hometown with his previous team despite his choice to stay in Europe.

“I hope to enjoy this new stage and see you in the coming days. I send a big hug to all of you and thank you for all the love you have given us. See you soon.”
