Liverpool star Jose Enrique congratulates Suso on AC Milan move

The two Spaniards were good friends at Liverpool.

The future of Spanish talent Suso at Liverpool has long been a topic of discussion at Anfield. With his contract expiring in the summer it was always going to be interesting to see how events panned out for the talent.

Earlier this month Italian side AC Milan were certain they had got their man. According to a report in The Mirror, his agent confirmed that he had signed a pre-contract agreement with the Rossoneri this month, with a move in the summer therefore agreed.

However, the Liverpool Echo reported just a couple of days ago that Liverpool were negotiating to send him off to Milan six months early. The report claimed Liverpool had agreed an earlier deal for the player after becoming annoyed with his decision to travel to Italy for a medical, without informing the club.

This morning the move was confirmed, and Suso will join Milan this month rather than in the summer.

Of course he has plenty of players at the club who will be sad to see him go. But one player who will more than others is Jose Enrique.

The fellow Spaniard is a good friend of Suso's and the pair have often featured in the same Instagram videos or Twitter pictures, larking about.

Enrique sent this Tweet to Suso upon learning of his exit:
