Suarez's move to Los Rojiblancos was confirmed late on Wednesday night, with the Madrid confirming the striker will still need to complete a medical and finalise his contract.

The Uruguayan was given a send off by the Catalan giants on Thursday afternoon and addressed the way in which he was told about his future.

“I already accepted leaving in that way, now I must change my mind and focus on the new challenge," Suarez said, as per Mirror.

“It was a crazy month, the last one, many wrong things were published which made me angry but everyone knows about my relationship with [Lionel] Messi. When I arrived I knew all about him and after six years we have an amazing relationship, I leave very proud.

“I already expected Koeman's call because I was warned about that, I could accept this even though I had a contract, we must accept that decision.

“It looks ironic but when Barca told me the coach didn't want me I received a lot of calls and offers but I still felt able to challenge at La Liga level against Barcelona and Real Madrid, I never had a doubt.

“I still think I am able to perform at my best in La Liga. I am leaving in this way but I still have goals to show I can still perform at the top.

“Sometimes a club or a player needs to change and in this case the coach didn't want me, I leave with the feeling of an accomplished duty, beating big Barcelona legends [in the list of all-time top Barcelona scorers] is something I never expected but I am happy for this."
