Suso has signed a new contract with AC Milan, as he is ending reported interest from Premier League giants Chelsea and Tottenham.
The 23-year-old has found his feet in Italy and settled himself as a key figure for Milan under Vincenzo Montella.
He Scored seven goals and collected 11 assists in 37 games. He has started this year in good form too, and he’ll now look to continue to play an important role for the Italian giants.
It means disappointment for Chelsea and Tottenham, who were both linked with a swoop for the Spaniard this past summer.
Suso had been linked with various clubs in recent months, as noted in the report, with both Chelsea and Tottenham interested in signing him up and taking him to London.
According to Calciomercato Suso’s new deal runs until 2022 and he’s now almost tripled his salary, as he previously been earning €1m-a-season.
Interestingly though, it’s suggested that a release clause has been inserted into the former Liverpool ace’s contract, and it’s not exactly a figure that will put off top clubs from around Europe making a move for him.
It’s claimed that the new contract contains a release clause somewhere between €40m and €50m. It looks as though he’s committed and set to stay in Milan for now, but it doesn’t close the door entirely in the future if such a clause does indeed exist in his new contract.
