Real Madrid are reportedly tracking AC Milan midfielder Suso. The Spanish winger has reached new heights since he joined AC Milan. The 23-year-old lit up the Serie A last season with his creativity on the pitch and his exuberant form has attracted a number of top clubs.

Los Blancos didn’t invest much in the summer as Zidane was quite happy with the team combination and didn’t want to tweak his setup much. But the recent situation has changed the equations completely and the Spanish giants are now in the market for a quality winger.

The Madrid boss seemed to be concerned Gareth Bale’s frequent injury scares. The Welsh winger hasn’t been able to keep himself fit for long and it has troubled the club a number of times. The former Tottenham Hotspur winger is currently sidelined with an injury and the club have already started the process to phase him out.

Suso could prove to be a bargain buy in this inflated market although Milan recently put him on a new contract which has a release clause of €40 reportedly.

Suso had a brief spell at Liverpool following his arrival at the club in 2012 but failed to grind out anything. He was eventually sold to Milan by then manager Brendan Rodgers and in Italy, he turned out as a completely different player.

He started five matches this season and has already racked up two goals and two assists under his belt. Despite having a much better life on Italian soil the Spanish winger is open to offers and is reconsidering his future.

Madrid have been a long admirer of the player and it could be their chance to pull off a sensational coup. Suso is primarily a right-sided winger, a place which was owned by Gareth Bale in his prime. The Spaniard can also be stationed across the front three and his stock only has risen since the last season.

He has excellent ball control and loves to test the keeper from distance. Vincenzo Montella has switched to a more combustive 3-5-2 system and for an out an out winger like Suso, it has been difficult to keep up his form. Madrid are seeking new options over Bale and Suso is likely to be the replacement, should he desire to leave the club.

Suso didn’t feature in the 2-0 loss against Roma and if he is continuously getting ignored, he might have to choose an alternate option. So is he a player Zidane should look at?
