Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez is set to leave at the end of the season, according to reports, with a host of clubs circling to snap him up on a free transfer.
Suarez, 35, won the LaLiga title in his first season under Diego Simeone and scored 21 goals, but is now poised to walk away at the end of his second campaign.
Marca have claimed that he hasn’t received any news from Atletico over an extension, despite him remaining confident he can still perform at the highest level.

He is even eyeing up a spot at the World Cup in Qatar and, as a result, the former Liverpool frontman will look for a move elsewhere to continue his career.
Diego Simeone will be crucial to deciding whether Suarez stays at the Wanda Metropolitano, having been integral to recruiting him at the start of last season.
Should he exit, he will have no shortage of interest, with a host of sides from across the globe looking to pounce for a bargain switch in the next transfer window.

Ajax, one of his former clubs, are interested, while Inter Milan are also circling.
Suarez could be handed a golden chance to stay put in LaLiga, meanwhile, after Sevilla reportedly expressed their eagerness to his representatives.
A number of outfits in Brazil have also earmarked the prolific ace as a target.
Marca add that Suarez is open to the idea of remaining in Spain, having played there since heading to Barcelona for his trophy-laden Nou Camp stint in 2014.

His hopes may be further boosted by the same outlet saying that other LaLiga sides are also keeping close tabs on his situation.
It was reported by Sportsmail earlier this year that Suarez wants one more challenge in Europe before he retires, and that he could have departed in the winter window.
It is understood he wants to play until the end of the next season, before assessing the possibility of finishing his career in the MLS alongside Lionel Messi.

Suarez turned down various offers from South America and believes that his impressive goal tally further proves that he can still perform in a top league.
A Premier League destination was not ruled out in January, however, but this failed to materialise despite both the player and his club being open to a parting of the ways.
He is not happy settling for a spot on the bench, and is also desperate not to spend the second half of the current campaign watching on from the sidelines.
