When we last left the Suso transfer saga, Tottenham were able to sign him for around €50m, which was the amount Tuttosport believed his release clause to be.
There was a real fear Spurs could come forward with that cash in the summer, meaning it would then be up to the forward to decide whether or not he wanted to team up with Mauricio Pochettino.
A couple of months before that, Calciomercato speculated the release clause was a bit less, somewhere between €40-50m, and it now appears to be even lower than that, meaning the worry surrounding Suso’s future in Milan is even greater.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday, the amount agreed upon back in 2017 when the Spaniard renewed his contract with the Serie A club was actually €38m.
In today’s market, for a versatile player capable of scoring at least five goals and picking up 10+ assists, that’s what you would call a bargain.
Gazzetta explain that a number of clubs are interested in the former Liverpool youngster, including Tottenham, although they come second on the list ‘in order of appearance’ behind Atlético Madrid.
Even if he might not be the most glamorous record-breaking signing in the world, he could certainly do a job, and he already knows what to expect from the Premier League.
