Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has joined Brazilian Serie A side Gremio on a free transfer, signing with the club until the end of 2024.

The former Liverpool, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid player, 35, returned to his first club Nacional in July and stayed for three months.

He scored eight goals in 16 games during his second stint with the side, winning the Uruguayan championship.

Gremio’s first game of 2023 is against Sao Luiz on January 17.

The club, based in the city of Porto Alegre, were promoted from Brazil’s Serie B in the 2022 season, which ended in November.

Suarez wrote on Twitter: “Preparing for this beautiful challenge at Gremio, I’m excited to be there and enjoy it.”
