Josep Maria Bartomeu has allowed Luis Suarez to make a move from Camp Nou to the Wanda Metropolitano this month.
Bartomeu will be between Barca’s great presidents
Atletico Madrid president Hugo Cerezo spoke highly of his colleague at Barcelona. Josep Maria Bartomeu has allowed Luis Suarez to make a move from Camp Nou to the Wanda Metropolitano this month. “Bartomeu is a great president, and in the future, he will be considered one of the great presidents of Barcelona,” Cerezo told journalists. “There have been many great presidents at Barcelona, but Bartomeu will be among them. Among other things, Bartomeu has great virtue. He’s a great and excellent person. I say this as a personal friend, not on behalf of Atlético. What a great man he is.”
In his transfer business, Cerezo was thrilled to have Suarez’s deal over the line. “I think a great player is coming,” he added. “One of the best goalscorers in Europe, and we are glad to have him in our club. We tried to sign him when he was in Holland, but our financial situation was bad, and we could not do it. “But fate is fate, and after a few years, he’s arrived at our club.” Cerezo also confirmed that Suarez’s move to Atlético would include further bonuses to Barcelona, depending on the player and the team’s performance this season.
