Suarez suffered trauma to his right knee in Barcelona’s 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid on 16 August, with a club medical report stating he would be out of action for four weeks.

“Luis Suarez is recovering favourably from the knee injury he suffered in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup,” said a statement from Barca on Friday.

“Barcelona’s medical services and the Uruguayan Football Association have agreed that the player will join up with his national team next week to continue his recovery work.”

Uruguay are third in CONMEBOL’s World Cup qualifying table with four games remaining although they are level on points with Chile, in fourth, and one ahead of Argentina in fifth.

The top four sides qualify automatically for next year’s World Cup in Russia, with the fifth-placed team entering a two-legged play-off.
