AC Milan have completed their first summer sale with Spanish winger Jesus Suso joining Sevilla on a permanent transfer.
Sevilla have officially qualified for the Champions League. Villarreal’s defeat against Real Sociedad allows the Andalusian team to celebrate the qualification two rounds before the end of the La Liga.
Sevilla’s participation in Champions League next season is also a good news for AC Milan because a place in the top four forces Sevilla to sign Jesus Suso on a permanent transfer. That was the condition required to trigger the automatic purchase of the Spanish winger.
Sevilla will pay €21 million for Suso, in addition to the 4 million for his loan, thus bringing the total figure to 25 million. For Milan this represents a full capital gain, given that Suso was signed from Liverpool for less that 1 million in 2014.
Thee 26-year-old Spanish right winger was part of AC Milan for nearly six season. He made 153 appearances with the Rossoneri scoring 24 goals and providing 36 assists. Nevertheless, the Spanish winger failed to become a key player at San Siro eventually losing his starting spot under Stefano Pioli.
The injection of fresh money from the sale of Suso allows AC Milan to move in advance for their primary transfer target. The 25 million fee is exactly what Red Bull Salzburg ask to sell Dominik Szoboszlai to the Rossoneri.
