In what could be a turn out to be a fantastic piece of business, Premier League newcomers Watford have signed Mario Suarez from Fiorentina.
The 3-cap Spanish international joins Watford on a four and a half year deal and while the transfer fee hasn’t been disclosed, Quique Sanchez Flores will be pleased to secure someone with the pedigree of Suarez who has spent the majority of his career at major clubs including Mallorca, Atletico Madrid and Fiorentina.
Suarez has been heavily linked with a number of Premier League giants in recent weeks but not many anticipated Watford to complete the deal before anyone else.
After completing his move from Atletico Madrid to Fiorentina last summer, Suarez’ time in Serie A has been nothing short of a disappointment.
In his first 6 months with the Italian Club, he made just 5 starts in Serie A and he can’t have been anticipating such little time on the pitch.
Meaning that when Watford came knocking, Suarez wasted no time in deciding to reunite with his former boss.
(Current Watford Boss Quique Sanchez Flores managed Suarez in his time at Atletico Madrid before leaving the job).
Talking to the club’s official website, this is what Mario Suarez has had to say regarding his move to Watford:
“I am very excited with the project of the club, to be trained again by Quique and to start playing for Watford. I am very happy to be here because it is a dream come true to play in the Premier League.”
