Villarreal’s Monday night home defeat to a visiting Real Sociedad side meant that Sevilla has officially qualified for the 2020/21 Champions League with two-game to spare.
Sevilla’s qualification for next season’s Champions League is good financial news for AC Milan because it triggers a clause in Suso’s loan contact with Sevilla. The clause in the contract provides that the Andalusian side is obliged to signing the Spanish midfielder permanently.
Sevilla will pay a total of €25 million (UGX 105,186,474,325) for the permanent services of Suso, €21 million will be added to Milan on top of the €4 million they paid for his loan. On Milan’s, this is a full financial gain, given that Suso was signed from Liverpool on a Bosman deal.
The 26-year-old Spanish left-footed winger who mainly operates on the right-wing has been at the San Siro for six seasons in which he has enjoyed some loan spells.
Suso also known as Jesús Joaquín Fernández Sáenz de la Torre
While donning the Rossoneri stripes, Suso made 153 appearances with the scoring 24 times and providing 36 assists. However, the Spanish winger fell in Milan’s pecking order after a disastrous trenquartista experiment under coach Giampaolo at the beginning of the season and was never given better chances by current coach Stefano Pioli to prove himself.
The Spain international, who is capable of playing as a winger or an attacking midfielder, has been an unused substitute in Milan’s last two Serie A fixtures.
On top of this deal, Sevilla is also looking at scooping right-back Davide Calabria away from the San Siro. The Primavera graduate has made it clear to his bosses at Milanello that he is interested in more playing time come next season which the managerial team can promise him since they have signed two more players in Alexis Saelemaekers and Pierre Kalulu who can cover that position.
