Veteran striker Luis Suarez is in talks over a possible move to US Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy, according to Uruguayan media reports.
Montevideo’s 35-year contract with outfit Nacional is due to expire in November, meaning he will be free to join the Californian side as a free agent the following month.
Media reports said the Galaxy saw Suarez as an ideal replacement for Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, who is expected to leave the club in December, Xinhua reported.
National president Jose Fuentes confirmed on Tuesday that the former Liverpool and Barcelona player will not extend his current contract.
“When the (current) championship ends, Luis Suarez will leave Nacional. I’m not going to create false expectations,” Fuentes said on the Punto Panel television program.
Suarez has scored four goals and provided three assists in 10 appearances since rejoining his parent club as a free agent in July.
