When Atletico Madrid won the La Liga title last season, one man was at the fore of it all — Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan international scored the all-important goal for Los Rojiblancos against Real Valladolid, hence clinching the title.

However, his importance in the team has seen a steep decline this season. He has only started 18 La Liga games for his side this season, scoring 11 goals and providing two assists.

Moreover, the arrival of Matheus Cunha and the resurgence of Angel Correa has seen his role reduced.

Given Suarez’s slow but sure decline, talks about a possible move away from Spain have begun. According to reports from Diario AS, the Uruguayan could well be on his way to a spell in Turkey.

Besiktas and Fenerbahce have already contacted the player’s environment and expressed their interest in signing the star striker. Given that his contract ends in June, he can sign for any club as a free agent in the summer.

Diego Simeone is not expected to oppose the player’s departure, for he has better options to deploy in the attack.

The manager did not even bring Suarez off the bench in the all-important game against Manchester City last week, opting for the likes of Joao Feliz, Antoine Griezmann and Matheus Cunha ahead of the former Barcelona legend.

Suarez is expected to end his career with a spell in the MLS. However, it is now increasingly likely that he will have a short stint in Turkey before he closes curtains on what has been a phenomenal career.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
