Atlético Madrid keen on AC Milan midfielder Suso - reports
The former Liverpool playmaker has reportedly stalled on contract extension talks and Corriere dello Sport say a move to LaLiga is on the cards.
Atlético Madrid look to be back in the market for some creative talent in the form of AC Milan's Suso. This is the story coming out of Italy on Sunday.
Suso for Simeone
According to Italian paper Corriere dello Sport, the former Liverpool midfielder has been in talks to renew his contract with the Rossoneri, however, those discussions have stopped. Still only 25, the stall has sparked new interest from Diego Simeone, with the capital club considering paying the 40 million euros of the Spaniard's buy-out clause. There had been previous speculation that Real Madrid were interested in the playmaker.
Suso was already in the sights of Atleti's sporting director, Andrea Berta, last summer, as the player himself explained. In the end he stayed with the Serie A club, where he had been since the summer of 2015 when he made the move from Liverpool for just 200,000 euros. During the 2019/20 season he scored 8 goals and provided 10 assists under former manager Gennaro Gattuso, but the club failed to reach a Champions League spot.
