GdS: Giampaolo and Milan leadership disagree over future of Suso

By Oliver Fisher -

Marco Giampaolo and the AC Milan hierarchy are at loggerheads over the future of Suso, according to a report.

The winger has been linked with a departure since the end of last season, as the Rossoneri are looking to offload a few players in order to fund the signings they have in mind. 

His departure seemed to be firmly on the cards, but the words of Giampaolo after Saturday’s friendly against Manchester United has seemingly added an interesting new dynamic to the situation.

Ligue 1 side Lyon have confirmed their interest in the player, and as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday morning, the player’s future is far from set in stone.

They report that there is a clear difference of views between the coach and the management at Casa Milan: Giampaolo wishes to keep the player, while the company is more inclined to sell. 

No official offer has yet arrived, but interest from Lyon and Roma is understood to be concrete, and Angel Correa is already lined up as his direct replacement.

Negotiations with Atletico Madrid continue but the distance over valuation (around €10m) still remains – but that could be very quickly closed should Suso depart for €35m or more.
