Atletico Madrid president Cerezo coy about paying Barcelona fee for Suarez

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo is coy about whether they signed Luis Suarez from Barcelona for free.

Suarez is at the Nou Camp today for his first game against his old club.

Cerezo told Sport: "Luis Suarez is a magnificent player and a great person. Barcelona don't have Luis Suarez anymore, but they have a great team and top players. We will go out to win. If we win, we'll be happy. If we lose, well, it will be down to bad luck or playing poorly.

"What I can confirm and I will tell you with my heart in my hands is that Barcelona, Atletico and Suarez have all benefitted and when the three parties are happy, it's because everything's gone well."

He added: "Do you think there's any transfer where there's no financial compensation?"
