Liverpool fans were able to relax and enjoy their Sunday yesterday after seeing their side comfortably dispose of Cardiff City on Saturday. Some of The Reds ended up tuning in to watch the Serie A yesterday and were contemplating the return of Suso, who has been in superb form for AC Milan since leaving Anfield, scoring the winning goal against Sampdoria at the San Siro yesterday.
Suso would fit nicely in our squad, I think. Can play on the right or as a 10. We don't need him, but he'd provide great depth and another option. He's getting better and better. Wonder if he'd ever want to come back and prove it. https://t.co/vROUIVGhYB

The Spanish winger left Liverpool for just over £1 million back in January 2015 when Brendan Rodgers was in charge. The silky winger/attacking midfielder never really cut it at Anfield, however, since moving to Milan he’s flourished, scoring 18 goals and registering 33 assists in 106 games for The Rossoneri since he departed Liverpool almost four years ago.
The Reds were foolish to let Suso go so cheap and if they were to enter the market for Milan’s sublime Spaniard it would cost them a fair bit more than the sum they received for him. The 24-year-old has a Transfermarkt valuation of £36 million and even that sum wouldn’t be enough to convince Ivan Gazidis and Gennaro Gattuso of Milan to sell up. In reality, an Anfield return for Suso won’t be possible, but the fans would love to see him return.

Should never have sold him.

Homegrown status too.

U say this but he’s getting better by playing every game so treating him as a squad player will probably mean we will not see AC Milan Suso

I reckon he’d love to come back but can’t see us making a bid any time soon

We could use him tbh. He could fill that creativity role that Coutinho left to be filled

He's the closest player to couthino, right now

Don't know why we let him leave thought he was good enough but oh well

Shocking decision not to insert a buyback clause. But typical of our transfer decisions back then

The Kopites still can’t believe Suso was allowed to leave so cheap and will hope that he can make an Anfield return one day.
