Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has been captured leaving the training ground in tears as he closes in on a move to La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.

The 33-year-old, who is also the third highest goal scorer in Barcelona history, said his goodbyes to Lionel Messi and rest of his teammates on Wednesday as he is expected to be announced new Atletico forward in a few hours.

The 33-year-old was captured shedding tears as he briefly put his head down while he drove out of and away from the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper facilities.

Since moving to Barcelona from Liverpool in 2014, Suarez has netted a remarkable 197 times in 283 appearances and the club are expected to make a farewell gesture to the striker on Thursday.

Earlier, the Uruguayan was tipped for Juventus move as he flew to Perugia, Italy, last week and passed a dual citizenship test in order to accelerate his move to the Serie A champions.

But that deal collapsed and Suarez could now find himself in hot water after claims by La Repubblica and Ansa that there were 'irregularities' in the test.
