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 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.”
