Official: Suso leaves Milan and joins Sevilla on an 18-month loan with option to buy which can become an obligation

Suso has officially left Milan and he will try to get back to his best at Sevilla.

Five years after joining Milan, Suso and the Rossoneri go on their separate ways. The Spaniard has had a very disappointing first half of the season and has recently lost his place in the starting XI.

After a couple weeks of negotiations, today it was announced that Sevilla have completed the signing of Suso, who was also linked with Roma:

“Milan announces to have reached an agreement for the player Jesús Joaquín Fernández Sáenz de la Torre (Suso) to join Sevilla FC on a temporary basis with option to buy that becomes obligation upon certain conditions,” a statement on Milan’s site reads. “The Club would like to thank Jesús for his professional commitment to the Club and wishes him all the best for his future career.”

The statement of Sevilla confirmed that it will be an 18-month loan. The contract of Suso with Milan was due to expire in 2021. The price of the buy-out option is undisclosed.

Sevilla’s announcement of Suso.

“Sevilla and Milan have reached an agreement for the signing of Jesús Joaquín Sáenz Fernández De la Torre, better known as Suso,” Sevilla’s announcement reads. “Suso signs on an 18-month loan deal but with an option to buy, which can be obligatory if a series of objectives are met. Suso, born in Cádiz on 19th November 1993, is primarily a right-winger, but he can play in a whole range of positions. He has played as a left-winger, as a central attacking midfielder and as a second striker. He landed in Sevilla at around 15:00 and then went to complete his medical. 

“The man from Cádiz began his career at Liverpool FC as a youngster, where he played 21 matches, scoring one goal and assisting another. He was then loaned to UD Almería, scoring three goals and nine assists in his 35 matches there. He then joined AC Milan in 2014/15, playing there for the last five-and-a-half seasons, bar a small loan spell at Genoa where he played 19 times, scoring six goals and assisting one goal. 

“At the Rossoneri, Suso played over 150 matches, scoring 26 goals and setting up a further 43 goals. His performances in Northern Italy earned him call-ups to the national side, where has played five times. His debut came in a friendly against Russia in 2017, when Julen Lopetegui was in charge of the team.”

I really hope milan has someone to cover this. Not a big fan of Suso but if Piatek goes to we have a very thin bench.

Martin Bernhard

Glad to see suso leave but i would be really gutted to see piatek depart with us and certainly not for anything below what we paid last january and even then i wouldnt be happy about such transfer. When that is said i doubt we will bring in any high profiled forwards at this point and wouldnt be overly surprised if they end up promoting Luan Capanni as an understudy to ibra for the remainder of the season that is if we infact sells piatek.


good luck with your new adventure…

Martin Bernhard

I wish him well but i would have hoped that he had left us a long time ago. Yes he was instrumental in scoring and adding assists in some games but he also limited the team from evolving as we would have been far better off developing a style than one around him and his one trick pony approach. For me it goes well beyond his current lack of form as he made us play one dimensional while slowing down the game and also limiting us deffensively with his lethargic attitude. He might do well in spain though where there… Read more »


Good luck suso

Well put

Martin Bernhard



after what he has supposedly said here Good riddance, the fact that its loan with option on certain conditions means that Sevilla are not completely sure about him either, and if what is said in that link is true then he has been utterly unprofessional in his attitude, bad displays trying to force a move! Good riddance, he has tarnished what good he has done for us Adios!!!


He stuck with the team when he was at his top and carried the team on his shoulders for many games.
He has been poor lately but we are never ungrateful , once a rossoneri , always rossoneri.
I will always love Suso , and I wish him all the good luck in the rest of his career either with us or elsewhere.
Forza Suso , Forza Milan.


who are we getting as re-enforcements? Any news?


So sad to see him leave the club. I will miss him the most but in the end it didnot worked out for him and the club. So best of luck you silky Spaniard!


Since the day he told Milan he wants a renewal with a bigger wage, few time after he renewed his contract, and he was refused, Suso became the player he is today, a player without commitment, a player without desire, a player unable to make difference and for me this is not professional ! He can do much more than what we have seen until now. I am very glad he left !

Martin Bernhard

Yeah his demands if really correct at 5-6 mil a year was riddiculous and maybe was caused by both donnarumma getting a high salary and his own fair ammount of success getting the better of his ego. after reading his interview on football italia and assuming he is correctly quoted im starting to wonder if his extremely bad drop in form was actually orchestrated to press his fee down as some of his passing in one of his last games was plain and simple unacceptable. —– “Both Milan and Sevilla knew full well that my intention was to come here,”… Read more »


Bad character ! What he played in the last 18 months was disgraceful ! He can play like a real Suso but he didn’t want anymore because of the renewal and he wanted his value to drop to quit easier from Milan ! Bad bad character ! The same I can tell about Gigio if he will leave for free ! Because Milan invested in him, gave him confidence and if he doesn’t want to stay here, Milan has the right to cash him at the right value ! Which is impossible if he doesn’t renew his contract !

Martin Bernhard

If Suso himself is to be believed then he has some sort of condition that flares up and somehow inhibits his perfomances over a season but i cant remember the name of it but there was an article about it a few months ago propably around october or something, If he infact has tried to lower his value by purposely not playing up to his standards then i egree it would certainly be a clear sign of him having a really bad character. Besides of that it would be a clear betrayal of the club, coaches, team mates and all… Read more »


Good riddance! Just wished we would cash on him right away instead of loan with option to buy. This management has been sucky when selling players. But overall good riddance. Next is the turkish kebab and Conti and Kessie tired legs…


The turkish is a very good midfielder !


I am a big fan of suso but losted my trust since he asked 6m for renewal to force a free transfer he registered with raiola but during this transfer he had no agent cunning SUSO. this deal is the best of the decade. but Milan made a big mistake on piatek deal, I felt sorry for him wish him success


What a world. In the beginning of the season, Suso was touted as the most valuable player of Milan. And the coach was even trying to build the team around him. And now, he leaves the club very unceremoniously. And the worst part is that it isn’t the club’s fault. He just refused to live up to his billing.


Mixed feelings, but the man was always pissed, complaining, and it’s too star to push hard. I’ll always remember him for his signature move, cut inside center right to the defenders shin.

Bye to the rotten apples, but anyway, what is Milan going to do if Castillejo gets injured, Conti Calabria? Conti, Rebic? I’m not comfortable to lose players with a plan B.


Milan need to sell b4 bringing in new people watch for 1 or 2 players to be signed by EOD Friday. This big sell off was expected.

Last day of the transfer window and Milan are really cleaning house; there’s still time to bring replacements but it seems mgmt are clearing up budget for next summer.


I don’t know if they’re looking to clear up for summer but how can we not get anyone? One injury in the front and we have no options. One injury to the flank and we have no options. Doing a good job of getting rid of players we no longer need but we still need depth players.


I honestly don’t believe we will buy any players in this transfer window. There are still rumors of a takeover at Milan with new ownership.

Braida left his post at Barcelona and it is said that he’s assisting with the negotiation of the sale to a new owner for Milan.


“is primarily a right-winger, but he can play in a whole range of positions. He has played as a left-winger, as a central attacking midfielder and as a second striker.“ no kidding. they have milan10ians too there at sevilla camp? suso has rotten luck of having idiotic coaches playing slow players like him and hakan as wingers, complete with stupid “pass the ball to suso or deulofeu and hope for the best” tactic. his lack of tenacity and determination for someone who demands high wage certainly dont help either. play him and hakan more centrally and u’ll see good through… Read more »


So up until now Milan haven’t signed anyone yet
Maldini and Boban sure love to leave work until deadline day huh
Just like when they were chasing Correa but to no avail


Milan seem to be clearing out players which is a possibility that we will have new ownership this summer.

I believe a take over is in the works and I highly doubt Elliott wants to hold onto Milan for long.

Braida’s name is constantly linked with a return as he is no longer with Barcelona. So it’s possible that we will have new management and ownership come next season.
