Luis Suarez to Major League Soccer? The player himself says it’s a distinct possibility.

The Uruguay national team star said he has “five or six offers” from unnamed MLS teams as he sorts his club future. The 35-year-old striker is currently a free agent after leaving Atletico Madrid, and the league’s Secondary Transfer Window runs through Aug. 4 (began July 7).

A deciding factor for Suarez, should he come to MLS? Being in top shape for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, and the 2022 season’s schedule seemingly plays a significant role there.

The regular season carries through Decision Day on Oct. 9, then the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs run until MLS Cup on Nov. 5. That gives a roughly two-week period before the World Cup starts Nov. 21, though participating players from non-playoff teams would have roughly six weeks off.

"The market in MLS is very complex – some clubs want you, but they don't have the slots, and so it would have to be for January,” Suarez said during a Radio Sport 890 interview. “Other clubs want you now, but I have to evaluate if they have a chance to qualify for the playoffs.
