Brahim Díaz’s move to Milan is taken for granted in Madrid but there are disagreements in the Spanish and Italian media over whether there will be buy-out and buy-back clauses.
Milan have been working on three main fronts: trying to sign Tiémoué Bakayoko and Sandro Tonali, as well as negotiating with Real Madrid over Brahim Díaz.
Brahim, who grew up in Malaga and later moved to Manchester City, before returning to Spain to wear the Real Madrid shirt, has been with Los Blancos for two seasons. He’s found limited space, playing just 21 games and scoring 2 goals and is therefore looking for a move in order to get more minutes ahead of the Olympic Games in 2021 and the U21 EURO with Spain next summer.
As reported by Pietro Balzano Prota, Radio Rossonera’s Simone Cristao, Vito Angelè and the Spanish MARCA, Brahim is practically one step away from joining Milan. Prota and Cristao even suggest that the 21-year-old will land in Italy next week with a medical at La Madonnina set to be scheduled.
While everyone in Italy and Spain seem to agree with Brahim will play in Red and Black next season, the formula of the transfer. MARCA write that Díaz is coming on a dry loan – with no option to buy, while Prota believes it’d be a loan with option to buy and a buy-back option for Real Madrid in the future. Angelè meanwhile also claims there will be a buy option, but doesn’t mention a buy-back.
The Spaniard is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder as well as on both wings and he will allow Stefano Pioli to have more options up front. The official announcement is close.
