As part of the deal, Milan midfielder Suso would have joined the Grifone, but the Spaniard decided to remain at San Siro. Either way, the two sides failed to reach a final agreement, and the Perotti transfer fell through.
Now, however, Suso's perspective has changed. A few months ago, he still had some hope of starting for Milan. Now, he's more likely to accept Genoa's offer of increased playing time and see if it can't turn him into the new Iago Falque.
Could this open the way to another Milan swoop for Perotti, whom we recently reported wasn't exactly over the moon about the club's current plight?
In the meantime, another former Genoa target –AS Roma winger Juan Manuel Iturbe- has found an agreement with Watford. The former Hellas Verona man was considered the right substitute for Perotti himself, for whom Watford themselves initially made an offer, finally refused by the Rossoblu.
