Luis Suarez has officially revealed his next destination after months of speculation regarding the Uruguayan international’s future. Amid links to various teams across the MLS, including David Beckham’s Inter Miami, Suarez has surprisingly opted to join his former club, Nacional, which plays in Uruguay’s top flight. Suarez released a video statement, via Fabrizio Romano, in which he announced his decision to return home to Uruguay.

This is a shocking development in the Suarez transfer saga. Despite rumors suggesting Suarez would be making a move to the MLS in the coming days, the 35-year-old is following his heart and heading back to the team where his prolific career got started.

While Suarez truly broke onto the scene during his stint at Ajax, it was at Nacional that he put himself on the radar of some of Europe’s top clubs. He debuted for the club in 2005 when he was just 18, before securing a move to the Netherlands with FC Groningen.
