Despite Barcelona having been desperate to get rid of him, Luis Suarez has been a revelation at Atletico Madrid this term, adding incredibly valuable goals to the team's hopes of success in LaLiga Santander. In fact, the veteran marksman has even earned a goalscoring bonus payment, as per his contract with Los Rojiblancos.
Suarez is rapidly emerging as Atleti's player of the season, despite us only being in February, and it could be argued he is approaching what you could consider his best form.
MARCA can reveal that as a result of scoring 15 goals this season, Suarez has received a bonus payment, which isn't uncommon for attacking players, and it's understood that once he reaches 20 goals there will be a further reward.
As Barcelona have struggled for goals this term, they've been forced to watch through gritted teeth as Suarez has catapulted Atleti towards the domestic title.
He has helped Diego Simeone's team take points in matches which would have ended as a draw in previous seasons, and he is exactly the forward that the Argentine coach has been desperate for since Diego Costa first left the club in 2014.
