Cagliari to embrace Suazo again

David Suazo will return to Cagliari this summer, club President Massimo Cellino has confirmed.

The Honduran international left the Sardinian club for Italian giants Inter in the summer of 2007 for €13m.

However, the player's Nerazzurri contract has now expired and it seems as if he's heading back to the Stadio Sant'Elia on a free transfer.

"A while ago Suazo asked me if he could come back," Cellino noted. "His request was like an order for me.

"He was a great gamble that paid off. I signed him when he was 19, he made history with us and his sale allowed me to remodel half of the side.

"I'll always be grateful to him for that. He's given a lot to Cagliari so I will welcome him back with open arms."

The 31-year-old forward struggled at the Stadio Meazza and was sent out on loan spells to Benfica and Genoa.

Suazo scored 102 goals in 276 games in all competitions for Cagliari during his eight-year stint with the Rossoblu.
