Luis Suárez says that he has received “five or six” offers from teams in Major League Soccer.
Suárez, currently without a club after leaving Atlético Madrid this summer, said in an interview with Radio Sport 890 that he will make a decision on his future over the next two weeks.
The former Barcelona striker said he had listened to the offers he had received from the United States, but added that he wanted to be in the best shape possible for the 2022 World Cup with Uruguay.
“The thing is that some possibilities are for January, I have to analyse everything,” Suarez said in quotes picked up by ESPN.
“The market in MLS is very complex, some clubs want you but they don’t have the slots, and so it would have to be for January. Other clubs want you now but I have to evaluate if they have a chance to qualify for the playoffs.
“I’m not closing the door on anyone and I’ve listened to all the offers. But if some MLS teams don’t qualify for the playoffs, they end their season in the first week of October, and that’s not useful for me because I would stop for a month ahead of the World Cup, which wouldn’t be good for me.”
