Aston Villa target Luis Suarez has reportedly agreed to join MLS giants the LA Galaxy after the 2022 FIFA World Cup, with the attacker set to sign for the American franchise to continue his career. According to Mundo Deportivo, the Uruguayan striker will make the move to California after this winter’s international tournament in Qatar, with the LA Galaxy set to sign Suarez in what could be the 35-year-old’s final move in his playing career.

The Atheltic had previously reported that Steven Gerrard was eager to reunite with Suarez at Villa, however, it was the striker’s first ever club, Nacional, who won the race for the attacker this summer. However, the veteran South American only spent a few months back in Uruguay, where the former Atletico Madrid star bagged four goals and three assists.

With 509 career goals to his name, Suarez has been one of the most prolific attackers in football this century. Yet for Villa, the striker will again not be taking his talents to the Premier League for one last dance, with the forward seemingly set to sign for the LA Galaxy in MLS.

The Western Conference side qualified for the MLS play-offs this season for the first time in over two years, and although Suarez is on the verge of signing for the LA Galaxy, the striker will have to wait until he can play for the Californian side, with the campaign set to end in early November before the World Cup.

Indeed, with the likes of Javier Hernandez and former Barcelona wonderkid Riqui Puig on their books, the LA Galaxy will have quite the squad for the 2023 MLS season. As for Villa, they will be wondering how they once again allowed Suarez to slip through their fingers with Gerrard’s side lacking in firepower.
