Real Madrid and AC Milan close to deal for Brahim Díaz
Brahim Diaz has returned to Milan, on a two-year loan from Real Madrid, with option to buy and counter-option.
The Spain international already spent last season at San Siro, scoring seven goals and providing four assists in 39 competitive appearances for the club.
He flew back in today and signed the contract at the Casa Milan headquarters, but like with Olivier Giroud on Friday, the club probably won’t release a formal announcement until tomorrow.
According to numerous reports, including Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, Milan has an option to buy at the end of the two-season loan in June 2023 for €22m.
Real Madrid also retain a counter-option worth €27m, so effectively can buy him back, with Milan getting a profit of €5m for helping to develop the player.
Brahim Diaz turns 22 next month and already has one goal in one senior cap for Spain under his belt.
Real Madrid paid €17m to sign him from Manchester City in 2019. and he has been able to score one goal for his national team until now and hopes to prove himself as a big star in Milan and Spain national team in the years to come.
