Barcelona striker Luis Suarez wants to go to MLS, according to his Uruguayan team-mate Nicolas Lodeiro.

Lodeiro, who plays at Seattle Sounders, says Suarez, ready to jump across the pond after fulfilling his dream and playing for Barcelona for the past five years.

Suarez & # 39; compatriot says the former Liverpool striker "always" asks for MLS and said it was "just a matter of time" before leaving Barca to fly to Stateside.

Suarez is still in good shape and scored six league goals in nine games this season.
