With the return of coach Zinedine Zidane on the bench of Real Madrid, the Los Blancos have reignited their interested in AC Milan winger Jesus Suso.
There is still a lot of time until the opening of the summer transfer market, the football season has come to life and too often rumors about the future of some players can annoy and destabilize the environment. However when a team like Real Madrid is mentioned then the impact could be even bigger.
Spanish newspapers clam that despite his bad moment Real Madrid are interested in AC Milan star Jesus Suso. Since last December’s Betis-Milan (Europa League) the 25 year old right winger has suffered a dip in form. after 5 goals and 7 assists in Serie A he has failed to make an impact (also because of injuries) and the Rossoneri could be open to sell if an important offer arrives.
The price tag of the Spanish winger is dictated by his release clause of 40 million euros, valid only for foreign clubs. The management is currently in negotiations with his agent to sign a new contract and eliminate the release clause but so far no progress has been made. Champions League qualification or not could have an impact on the final decision of both sides.
According to Marca.com, the return of Zinedine Zidane on the bench of Real Madrid has reignited the interest of the reigning Champions League winners in Suso. Real Madrid are preparing for an overhaul this summer and Suso could be one of the targets indicated by coach Zidane. Even though Eden Hazard remains top choice at Madrid that doesn’t exclude the signing of other wingers.
Atletico Madrid, who look like a more feasible track at the moment, have also expressed interested in Suso. Atletico made an official inquiry in late December but AC Milan’s answer was clear: “Suso is not for sale“. Coach Gennaro Gattuso considers him a crucial element of the team and strongly believes that Suso’s future lies at Milan.
