Milan Sign Suarez
It's transfer deadline day in Italy, but AC Milan have managed to get one more transfer in ahead of the season getting fully underway, after they signed Spanish midfielder Denis Suarez on a free transfer after Sporting CP released him from his contract. The 20-year-old had been at the Portuguese club since January 2013, but fell out with the club and left just days before the end of the transfer window.
Like his previous signing, Xandao, Denis Suarez is a name well-known to Matthaus. He signed the attacking midfielder from English giants Manchester City for £500k in 2013, becoming the first signing in the project of building for the future, which he has continued at the San Siro, signing more than ten players since he joined, and the majority of them are young players predicted to be stars in the future. He signed Suarez for Sporting hoping he would be a star in years to come. He spent all his time at Sporting out on loan, so didn't even make an appearance for the Verde-e-Brancos.
Lothar Matthaus is said to have leapt at the opportunity to sign the Spaniard for free, and has said that he will not loan out Suarez, as he wants him to gain experience from the fantastic players and staff at the San Siro.
All parties involved in the deal are said to be delighted after this went through. Suarez wants to continue his development and further his career at the San Siro, especially because of the fantastic youth setup that the Rossoneri posses. The staff are also said to be delighted, because they have a policy of signing young players, and this just helps them prove they well have the best team in the world in a few years. Fans are also said to be happy that they've secured such a good young talent for a few years.
Suarez is on £8k per week until June 2018.
