The Spanish winger will finally leave Milan after years of polarising the fan base. Some good memories, others forgettable.

Pietro Balzano Prota is reporting that AC Milan will sell right winger Suso to Sevilla this summer after the player's buy out was triggered by the club qualifying for the Champions League last evening. Villarreal's loss puts Sevilla into a guaranteed 4th place finish at the least this season. Suso left in January on loan and has a buy out set at between 21-24 million euros which will represent a major capital gain for the club.

Daniele Longo reports that Milan will receive between 21-24 million euros.

Nicolo Schira reports that Milan will receive 22 million euros.

Vito Angele reports that Milan will receive around 23 million euros.

Antonio Vitiello reports that Milan will receive around 24 million euros.

The 26 year old leaves Milan after 6 seasons where he played 153 games scoring 24 goals and providing 36 assists helping Milan to two Europa League finishes 6th in 2017/18 and 5th in 2018/19. He managed to win one piece of silverware in 2017 when Milan beat Juventus for the Supercoppa Italiana in Qatar .

The exit of the winger for 21-24 million euros is the third major transfer finalised under Paolo Maldini this season following Patrick Cutrone to Wolverhampton for about 20 million euros and Krzystof Piatek to Hertha Berlin for 27 million euros. These transfers constitute three of the five largest sales by value of the past eight seasons (since Ibrahimovic and Silva left in 2012). Only Leonardo Bonucci to Juventus for 35 million euros brought in more while Mario Balotelli to Liverpool for 20 million rounds out the top five. This is a key reason to keep the legend around as Milan are finally managing to sell off under-performing players. Also, bear in mind that according to the rumours here this money will be reinvested into the transfer market as a addition to the 75 million that the club has assigned to Rangnick thus he has closer to 100 million now.
