Suso was expected to leave with the arrival of Giampaolo and his 4-3-1-2 system. The Spanish winger has been heavily linked away but recently Giampaolo stated he would like to reinvent the player.
After his agent was at Casa Milan yesterday, he was reaffirmed to stay at the club, barring the activation of his release clause. The player’s will is believed to be staying but it is yet to be seen how he will perform in the new system.
Milan will most like use the 4-3-1-2 system Giampaolo is known for which would isolate any wingers on the team. Suso is expected to be tried either as a trequartista now or a second striker.
Suso did have his break out season at Genoa playing behind the strikers so the role is not entirely new to him. As a support striker with Piatek he could in theory add width to a formation devoid of it.
