LUIS SUAREZ is reportedly in talks over a return to boyhood club Nacional in Uruguay after snubbing a transfer to Wayne Rooney's DC United.
The iconic striker is a free agent after a two-year spell at Atletico Madrid.
Suarez, 35, netted 34 times in 83 appearances across all competitions for Atletico and helped them win LaLiga in the 20/21 season.
The former Liverpool ace was linked with a move back to the Premier League as well as a transfer to the MLS to play for DC United.
However, DC boss and old rival Rooney snubbed the move saying he wants players who are "hungry" to play for the club.
And now a return to his homeland could be on the cards.

According to journalist Cesar Luis Merlo, president of Suarez's boyhood club Nacional, Jose Fuentes will travel to Spain on Tuesday.
Fuentes will meet with Suarez in an attempt to lure him back to Nacional.
Suarez played just four times for Nacional between 2005-2006 before making a move to the Dutch league.
And should he rejoin the club, he'll have at least 17 games to play.
