By Oliver Fisher -

Suso has confirmed that as things currently stand he will be joining Sevilla on a permanent deal this summer.

The Spaniard secured a move to Sevilla late in January to relaunch himself after a bad few months with the Rossoneri, a club he joined back in 2014. The formula of the deal is a loan until 2021 with an option to buy that becomes an obligation if  they reach the Champions League.

The 26-year-old has so far managed just one goal and one assist in eight games for Sevilla, but despite this head coach Julen Lopetegui cotninues to believe in him, and Suso himself has expressed his desire to stay beyond the loan agreement.

Suso spoke to Radio Marca Sevilla about the terms of the deal and confirmed that the option to buy will become an obligation with a top four finish.

“Yes, if we were to qualify for the Champions League then I would definitely stay here,” he said (via MilanLive).

“However, there are also other options,” he added – possibly referring to the fact that the Andalusian club and in third and are firmly in a battle for a Champions League place.

On the Coronavirus emergency, he added: “This situation scares me enough. I would like to start playing again, but it is a dramatic situation that does not has never occurred and that forces us to be careful.

“If there is a 1% risk, your best bet is not to start playing again. I have a one and a half year old son and my wife is pregnant and will soon be giving birth. What happens if I go to train and get infected? If I were to take the virus home, I would never forgive myself for it in my life.”
