Real Madrid are looking for solutions to end their crisis and Florentino Perez is planning for the winter transfer window.

One of the main problems this season for Zidane was the lack of efficiency in front of goal and multiple reports suggested that the BBC trident will most probably be scrapped. The numbers of Benzema, Bale and Ronaldo have been very poor this season and Perez is looking to address the issue.

According to Calciomercato, Real Madrid is ready to pay AC Milan the €40m release clause of Suso, who is seen as part of the solution at Santiago Bernabeu.

Suso arrived at San Siro in 2015, from Liverpool, for only €1,3m and impressed with his performances, reaching his peak this season. Besides Real Madrid, Tottenham are also interested in the player’s services.

But according to the report, Real Madrid will move faster and will look to secure the transfer of the player in January. Although he claimed that he is happy in Milan, where he adjusted perfectly, it would be hard for Suso to turn down the chance to play in his own country, for one of the most important clubs in the world, especially considering the superior wages that he would receive in Madrid.

Suso played 50 matches for AC Milan, scoring 11 goals. He can play on the wings in the attacking three of Real Madrid or behind the striker. Suso has been acquired by Liverpool from Cadiz when he was only 15 years old. Although he is yet to play for the senior national team of Spain, he has been called up for all the levels of the youth national team.
