€40m AC Milan star linked with January Real Madrid move

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale is struggling with injuries so far this season and according to reports in Spain (via Sportmediaset), the Merengues are considering signing a talented AC Milan footballer to replace the Welshman.

The Champions League winners, in fact, are being linked with signing the rossoneri star winger Suso who has just extended his stay at the San Siro including a € 40 million release clause in his deal.

According to sources in Spain, Real Madrid would be open to match the player’s release clause in January as the Merengues need a reliable replacement of Bale who, according to the most recent statistic, skips one match out of three due to injuries.

A few months ago Suso revealed that he came close to joining Real Madrid in the past.

“I came close to joining Real Madrid. I came here [in Madrid] to visit the training facilities but the Liverpool called me and I decided to move to England. I wanted to try a new experience and play in the Premier League. The following day Liverpool signed me. I was very young and it was hard for me to settle in well. I was lost even if the dressing room was full of Spanish footballers thanks to Benitez. I have recovered now.”
