According to Madrid-based newspaper Marca, AC Milan player Suso has been offered to Real Madrid. It’s the Spaniard’s agent, Alessandro Lucci, that has offered Los Blancos the midfielder. AC Milan are in trouble with the Financial Fair Play regulations, and Suso is believed to be worth around €40 million. UEFA have already confirmed that the Italian side will be suspended from participating in any UEFA tournament for the next two seasons, after breaking the Financial Fair Play rules.
There isn’t any indication that Real Madrid will want to buy the attacker, but they wanted to sign Suso back when he was 16 years old — but Siso chose a move to Anfield instead. Julen Lopetegui has worked with Suso during his period as coach for the U-19 and U-20 Spanish national team. AC Milan’s rival, Inter Milan, is also believed to be interested in Suso, but they will have to pay more than the €40 million price tag, as that only applies for non-Italian clubs.
Suso, or Jesús Joaquín Fernández Sáenz de la Torre as is his original name, was born in Cádiz in 1993. He played for the Andalucían club until 2010, when he moved to Merseyside to play for Liverpool. After five years and just 21 matches for the reds, he moved on to AC Milan in 2015. In Milano, the now 24 year old attacker has played 95 matches — scoring 15 goals and assisting 26. Suso got his debut for the Spanish national side in November 2017 under Julen Lopetegui. Lopetegui was also the coach who handed Suso his debut for both Spain U=21 and Spain U-20.
