Here are the top MLS landing spots for Luis Suarez

With Barcelona’s catastrophic defeat at the hands of former Vancouver Whitecap Alphonso Davies’ Bayern Munich, the club has likely entered into a new phase of its existence. With multiple changes already taking place including the firing of manager Quique Setien, the potential for massive changes among the Barcelona squad are imminent.

One of those reported potential changes is the departure of star Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez. Suarez’s name has popped up in numerous transfer rumours since the loss and, at 33 years of age, it is looking more and more likely that he will get moved very soon.

Add in the fact that new manager Ronald Koeman has stated that Antoine Griezmann is not a winger and, instead, a more central player, and it feels almost inevitable that the transfer will take place. Which begs the question, where will he end up? MLS appears to be a prime candidate to bring in the attacker, as he has reportedly said in the past that he would like to come to MLS, so let’s take a look at where Suarez could end up if he comes to MLS.

Let’s break down which MLS teams make the most sense for Suarez to sign with.

DC United

With Wayne Rooney recently departing for Derby, DC United have an opening for a new Designated Player. The club is unafraid to add those big-name players, see Rooney, and Suarez could make a partnership with Ole Kamara that would have DC United fans salivating. With some already solid attacking players in Kamara, Julian Gressel, Yamil Asad, Paul Arriola, and Edison Flores, there could be a bit of an overload of attacking talent.

However, the club could line up in a 4-1-2-1-2 wide formation that would allow all but one of these players to be a regular starter. While the financials would surely be expensive, DC could use another massive name star talent to garner a bit more attention following Rooney’s disappointing exit.
