A new round of negotiations between Serie A winners AC Milan and Real Madrid for Spanish playmaker Brahim Diaz, 23-year-old, is imminent
Reputable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that AC Milan would make acquiring Brahim Diaz on a permanent basis their top priority during the next summer transfer window. The 23-year-old playmaker will be meeting with Real Madrid, who are the current Champions League holders, thanks to the Serie A champions. The option is worth almost €22 million to the Italian powerhouses.
Since leaving Real Madrid for AC Milan, Brahim Diaz’s career has been revitalized. The January 2019 transfer to Real Madrid looked to be the fulfilment of a longtime goal for the Spaniard. However, he did not have enough playing time to make an impact, therefore in September 2020, he joined the Serie A powerhouses.
As a result, the 23-year-old is now on his third loan season at AC Milan. The Spanish playmaker has had a productive 2022/23 season thus far, with four goals and two assists. In the summer, the Serie A winners want to make Diaz a permanent addition from Real Madrid.
Will Brahim Diaz move to AC Milan permanently?
It’s possible that Real Madrid would have no problem with the 23-year-old playmaker permanently signing with AC Milan. Diaz is at his best as a no. 10, which makes him a poor match for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid. Thus, it is possible that he will gain from joining the Serie A team, where he already has a solid foundation.
A few months ago, it was reported that the Rossoneri were interested in initiating contract negotiations with Diaz. Even more exciting is the fact that the Serie A winners have set up a meeting between the Spanish international and Real Madrid. Reports of mutual openness to a compromise suggest that talks might go quite easily.
Fabrizio Romano claims that AC Milan has the option to permanently acquire Diaz for €22 million. After that, Real Madrid will have a €27 million repurchase option. Meanwhile, it has been stated that the midfielder intends to stay with AC Milan beyond the summer transfer window.
As a result, it seems like a move may be made this summer, as all parties are on the same page. Diaz has been linked with a permanent move to AC Milan in a €22 million deal, although the two clubs might potentially negotiate a different figure.
