The Major League Soccer (MLS), a market that had already shown previous interest in Luis Suárez, doesn’t seem to have given up on acquiring the current top scorer of Grêmio this season.
According to information released by Ekren Konur, a journalist specializing in the transfer market, two teams from the top North American league have approached the player’s representatives. Such is the interest from these two MLS clubs that financially significant proposals have been put together to entice the long-time European football veteran.
However, according to the source of the information, Suárez hasn’t even considered entering negotiations as he considers himself happy and confident in the project that has been presented to him since his arrival at the Porto Alegre club. This effectively dismisses the possibility of him leaving Tricolor at this time.

In addition to the impact on visibility and initiatives to boost Grêmio’s revenue, such as the surge in fan memberships, for example, the sporting return has been significant in the first five months of his tenure.
Wearing the Imortal shirt, Suárez has played 23 matches, scoring 14 goals, providing six assists, and securing two titles: the Recopa Gaúcha and the Campeonato Gaúcho. Since joining Grêmio in December of last year, Suárez has shown exceptional performance. The striker quickly became a key player in Renato Portaluppi’s tactical scheme.
With his experience on the field, the Uruguayan has earned the trust of the fans and established himself as the team’s current top scorer. Although the MLS offer was tempting in financial terms, Suárez prioritised the Grêmio project and the club’s infrastructure.
The player acknowledges that the Tricolor Gaúcho has a strong foundation and a conducive environment to further his professional career. The decision to stay at the club is a sign of commitment to the goals achieved by the board, who made significant efforts to have the athlete in the team.
