Suso has responded to reports that he is eyeing a move away from AC Milan by insisting that he 'only wants to stay' with the sleeping Italian giants.
The forward took to his personal Instagram account to downplay speculation over his future at San Siro amidst talk that former club Liverpool are plotting an extraordinary transfer for him.
In the lengthy social media post, Suso admitted that he had no time for the supposed release clause fee in his Milan contract before going on to commit his immediate future to the Serie A side.
🇮🇹 Ho firmato da poco un importante rinnovo. Ma io penso al campo e al mercato ci pensa il mio agente. Leggo, mi riferiscono di tutto: voci, volontà, presunte trattative e inesattezze. Provo a chiarire. Prima cosa: non mi interessa nulla della clausola, per conta solo il campo e 5 mesi che dovranno vederci protagonisti. Seconda cosa: serve rispetto per una società storica e speciale come il Milan che si di me ha puntato ed investito tanto. Terzo: in ogni caso conterebbe la mia volontà, solo la mia volontà. Ed io voglio per adesso voglio solo stare qui. Tutto il resto sono solo chiacchiere. Forza Milan, Suso. # 🇪🇸 Recientemente firmé una renovación importante. Pero pienso en el campo y en el mercado se preocupa mi agente. Leo, me cuentan todo: rumores, ofertas, supuestas negociaciones e inexactitudes. Intento aclarar: Lo primero: no me importa la cláusula, ya que solo el campo cuenta y 5 meses para que termine la liga que son los verdaderos protagonistas. Lo segundo: necesitamos respeto por un club histórico y especial como Milán, que se ha centrado en mí e invertido mucho. Tercero: en cualquier caso, contaría mi voluntad, solo mi voluntad. Y por ahora solo quiero quedarme aquí. Todo lo demás es solo charla. Forza Milan, Suso.
He wrote: “I recently signed an important renewal. think about the pitch and my agent thinks about the transfer market. I’ve read everything: rumours, desires, supposed negotiations and inaccuracies. Let me try to clarify.
“Firstly, I don’t care about the release clause, on the pitch counts and in these five months we have to be protagonists.
“Secondly, a historic and special club like Milan deserves respect, they’ve focused on me and invested a lot.
“Thirdly, in any case, my desire would count, and only my desire. For now I only want to stay here, everything else is just chatter. Forza Milan, Suso.”
Media reports had alleged that Liverpool wanted to be reunited with the attacker that they sold to Milan for just £1m in January 2015.
Jurgen Klopp is believed to have earmarked the 24-year-old as part of his plans to replace Philippe Coutinho at Anfield, and may have activated the release clause fee - thought to be around £43m - in Suso's Milan contract.
Insane how Suso has grown & flourished as a player since arriving at Milan. Taken his vision, creativity, control and finishing all to the next level & increased his point production as he's become one of the biggest impact players of the Serie A & the pillar of this Milan side.— Maxi (@MaaxiAngelo) January 15, 2018

The Spain international has featured 72 times for I Rossoneri over the past three years, and has bagged himself seven goals and nine assists in 27 appearances this term.
Milan have even taken to their own official site to try and shoo off Liverpool's reported interest in their star, and stated that they wouldn't even sell him for £70m.
The Italian club said: "With Suso, Milan was very clear in the summer: we do not even give in for an offer of 80m euros."
