Suso requests Roma move

Reports are growing rapidly that Suso has asked to leave Milan, with Roma ready to take him as a replacement for injured Nicolò Zaniolo.

The 26-year-old has dropped down the pecking order at San Siro recently and is no longer considered a key player.

He was left on the bench for Saturday’s 2-0 win away to Cagliari, as a move to the 4-4-2 system effectively locks him out.

According to MilanNews.it and Calciomercato.com, Suso had a meeting with the Milan hierarchy this afternoon, in which he asked to leave the club.

Roma are first in line, having lost Zaniolo for the rest of the season with a ruptured ACL and meniscus in his knee.

The asking price for Suso has also plummeted from the original €30m to around half that figure.

Suso has also reportedly tipped Roma as his favoured destination.
