The move ‘could see Suarez replace Javier Hernandez as the club’s best paid player’
According to reports in AS, LA Galaxy are one of a number of US clubs interested in signing the striker, who does not wish to return to Europe.
They also claim the Galaxy have been in ‘constant contact’ with Suarez’s agent, and that the club would be willing to let Douglas Costa go to open up a space in their roster.
Suarez has hinted a move to the MLS before. In recent quotes carried by AS, he said: ‘It’s one of the options that I see as being most likely, but I’m not thinking about that right now. I’m thinking about and enjoying myself at Nacional.’

The Sun claims Suarez has been offered £6 million a year by the Galaxy, which would make him the highest paid player at the club ahead of Javier Hernandez.
Greg Vanney’s side currently sit fourth in the Western Conference of the MLS, 20 points behind local rivals Los Angeles FC with just one game left to play.
The Galaxy could benefit hugely from a striker of Suarez’s calibre as they look to win a first MLS trophy since 2014.
