Luis Suarez trains with Atletico Madrid after being forced out by Barcelona - in pictures

The Uruguay international is in line to make his debut against Granada at the Wanda Metropolitano this weekend

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone believes Luis Suarez can lift the club to new heights and said his new signing will be in the squad to face Granada on Sunday.

Suarez trained with his new teammates for the the first time on Friday after being pushed out by Barcelona, who allowed the 33-year-old to leave for free, with only an extra €5 million due in variables.

"His arrival is an opportunity for us to keep growing as a club and to have new energy as a team," said Simeone.

"We spoke before he went to Barcelona at a time when the possibility came up that he might join us. The last six years he's had have been incredibly successful.

"His teammates want to make him settle in as quickly as possible so his goals and game can help us win."
