AC Milan winger Suso has admitted that he would like to return to playing in Spain at some point in the future, given his dreams to get back in the national team.
Recently, Suso’s future has come under scrutiny as the 26-year-old changed agents, leading to suggestions he could be ready to leave the club after over five years.
The Spaniard recently split from Alessandro Lucci’s agency, and Calciomercato.com reported that the reasoning was down to Suso being unhappy with the lack of a contract renewal, having requested a pay rise at Milan.
Furthermore, the €38m release clause was Lucci’s idea, which turned out to be an obstacle rather than a loophole in securing a move away.
Suso gave a long interview to Sky Italia about his aims for the future, and his words were transcribed by MilanNews.it.
“I think the Spanish national team is one of the most beautiful things there is,” he began.
“I would like to play in Spain, because I played for only one year there and I was very young, another nice thing is that when I go back to Spain people are very quiet with me, because I don’t play in that league, because people don’t see you on TV all the time as they do here [in Italy]. The quality of life is very good.
“My dream is to play in the Champions League. I am 26 years old and I have been playing all the games since I was twenty, but I still haven’t played a match in the Champions League.
“I think all the strong players play in the Champions League and a club like Milan must participate. When you play in the Champions League, everything is different: the people, the team, the players, the strongest opponents.”
