Brahim Diaz’s goal for Real Madrid in their 3-0 win over Braga is likely to play a big role in him receiving a national team call-up. The only question that remains, though, will it come from Spain or Morocco.

According to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, Brahim finds himself in the unique position of being able to choose between playing for both Morocco and Spain.

The outlet adds that the Moroccan team is particularly hopeful, almost expecting him to join their ranks in the near future.

On the other side, the Spanish team believes Brahim has a preference for playing with them.

Furthermore, it is interesting to note that despite his consistent presence in the Spanish Under-21 team under Luis de la Fuente, who hasn’t extended a call-up to the senior team, Brahim has only made a single appearance for the Spanish national team at the age of 24.

While the national team federations are chasing Brahim, the player, on his part, has not made a decision yet. In fact, he faced questions about his future post the Braga match and he remained tight-lipped about which team he’ll be suiting up for.

“I won’t go with the first one who calls me, it’s not like that. I’m focused on Madrid, where I’m having few minutes and I want to have more,” he said.

“I’m at the best club in the world and focused on succeeding here. That’s my goal right now,” he added.

As it turns out, De la Fuente will release the list of players who will be selected for the Spanish national team for upcoming matches and while talking about it, the footballer could only say, “We will see the list. At Madrid, I am waiting for good things to happen.”

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
