His fine performances in the first 10 rounds of Serie A have made Suso one of the most in demand players on the transfer market. Real Madrid are interested too.
Suso is AC Milan’s extra man this season. The Spaniard has returned to scoring at San Siro and is feeling at ease with different formations too. Whatever the game system (4-3-3, 4-4-2 or 3-5-2) he has performed at the highest levels. The Rossoneri number 8 is always present when the Red and Black create an attacking opportunity.
After the first 10 rounds in the league Suso is among Europe’s top 10 players when it comes to contribution in goals. The 24 year old right winger has scored 4 goals and has provided 7 assists in Serie A. Excellent numbers that have attracted the attention of Europe’s best clubs ready to acquire his services.
In recent days there was a first contact between his agent, Alessandro Lucci, and Marina Granovskaia, right hand of Roman Abramovich, Chelsea’s rich owner. Not just the Blues, though. Il Corriere della Sera writes that Real Madrid are also eyeing a move for Suso and his 38 million euros release clause make him a very affordable player.
Real Madrid is the club Suso has supported in his childhood and a move back to Spain could be tempting. However sporting director Leonardo is planning to offer the flamboyant winger a new contract and eliminate his release clause or at least raise it to 60 million euros. It would be a huge loss for AC Milan if Real Madrid, or any other interested club, purchases Suso for 40 million, today’s market prices considered.
The interest of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea should serve as extra motivation for managing duo Leonardo and Paolo Maldini to accelerate renewal talks. On his part, the Spanish winger has always declared to be happy at San Siro and is open to renovate his current agreement.
