Former Liverpool midfielder Suso has extended his contract with AC Milan until June 2022.
After spending four and a half years with Liverpool, Suso joined AC Milan in the winter transfer window of 2015 for a €1.3m fee, and since then, he has been one of the standout performers in the Serie A.
In the 2016/17 season, Suso netted 7 goals and registered 9 assists in the league, and played an important role in the Italian Super Cup victory against Juventus in the final.
Considering his exploits, Chelsea and Juventus were reportedly interested in signing him, but AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella blocked the move, as he is a big admirer of the player.
The Spaniard’s impressive form for Milan also played a pivotal role in him earning a call-up to the Spanish squad, and now, the 23-year-old has started the new season where he left off in the previous campaign, scoring two goals and as many as assists in the opening two league matches.

Therefore, the Italian giants have extended his stay at the club by offering him a contract extension until June 2022 and almost tripling his salary. Milan announced the deal on Monday, and Suso expressed his excitement at signing a new contract and committing his future to the San Siro outfit.
“I’ve extended my bond with Milan until 2022, and to do it with my family, my partner and my agent and my partner by my side filled me with emotion,” Suso stated. “A particular, special thank you to the Milan directors. I’ll do everything for this shirt, as I’ve always done. Forza Milan, always.”
