Uruguay forward Nicolás Lodeiro, captain of Seattle Sounders, who will play in the MLS Cup final against Toronto FC, has revealed that Barcelona star Luis Suarez wants to play in the United States.
“I think you need to convince Barcelona. He wants to come to MLS,” Lodeiro told MLSsoccer.com. “He is always asking me about the league. His dream was to play for Barcelona. He’s playing at a great level and he feels comfortable there."
“Sooner or later he’ll come to MLS. Well, hopefully. He likes the league. He’s always asking me things about it. Hopefully he can also play for Seattle Sounders. It may be a more difficult task. I think it’s only a matter of time before he’s out here.”
Suarez has been linked with MLS for a while, with David Beckham's Inter Miami franchise the favourites to land the Barça No.9.
The 32-year-old has scored 137 goals in 172 league appearances for the Spanish champions since he joined the club from Liverpool in 2014.
