Sky: Good news for Rangnick as sale pushes Milan’s summer transfer budget above €100m

By Oliver Fisher -

The summer budget available to incoming AC Milan boss Ralf Rangnick has increased due to the sale of Suso, a report claims.

As MilanNews notes, Monday evening essentially sealed Suso’s permanent exit from Milan. The Spanish forward, who moved to Sevilla on loan last January, will now make his loan deal permanent as the obligation to buy has been triggered as a result of the Andalusian side’s top four finish.

The operation will bring Milan €24m of which almost all will be pure capital gains, given the minuscule fee paid to Liverpool in order to sign him over half a decade ago.

According to Sky Italia (via Calciomercato.com), this has provided a nice injection of further funds to Milan’s summer transfer budget and the war chest that Rangnick will have at his disposal.

Previously the available amount stood at €75million, but the full €24m will be added which when factoring in wages saved too means the budget is likely to be above €100m.
