Luis Suárez approaches Aston Villa according to information from the English media. The 35-year-old striker would have met in recent days with Steven Gerrard, current coach of that team and former teammate of the Uruguayan in Liverpool.
Suárez also greeted Gerrard on social media on May 30 for his 40th birthday. “Happy birthday to my friend who helped me a lot in my professional career“He wrote on Instagram and attached a photo of them both celebrating a goal in a Liverpool shirt.
At Aston Villa another friend of Suarez plays, the Brazilian Philippe Coutinho, for whom the Birmingham team paid 20 million euros after passing through Barcelona.

Suárez played 45 games and scored 13 goals in his last spell with Atlético de Madrid. In any case, his best moment with the white shirt was last year, when he was the great figure of the team that became champion of La Liga over Real Madrid and Barcelona.
At the end of June his contract with the Madrid club officially ends and in November the World Cup in Qatar is played.
The incorporation of Suárez to Aston Villa will try to be the leap in quality necessary to return it to the highest levels of international football. Villa is precisely one of the five English teams that won the Champions League, beating Bayern Munich to become champions of the 1981/82 edition of the continental competition.
