Brahim Diaz is reportedly on the verge of signing a new four-year contract with Real Madrid, with talks between the two parties advanced.
AFabrizio Romano, Brahim Diaz will return to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. The Spanish international will not join AC Milan permanently in the coming weeks. And he is on the verge of signing a new four-year contract, with talks between the two parties advancing.
Brahim Diaz has not found a stable footing in his professional career thus far despite being a highly-rated prospect. The 23-year-old first rose to prominence during his five-year stint with Manchester City. But instead of making his first-team debut for the Premier League giants, he returned to Spain, joining Real Madrid in January 2019.
The Spanish international barely made any progress between January 2019 and September 2020 before joining AC Milan. And Diaz has made considerable progress during his three-year loan stint with the Rossoneri. And the player has chipped in with seven goals and seven assists in 45 appearances this season.
The Spaniard now faces an uncertain future, with AC Milan keen on signing him permanently. Recent reports have also linked him with several Premier League clubs. And Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly considering securing his services. But Diaz will seemingly remain at Real Madrid upon returning from AC Milan.
