AC Milan will soon hold talks with Real Madrid to discuss the permanent signing of Brahim Diaz at the end of the ongoing campaign, reports transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Diaz is on loan at AC Milan from Real Madrid for the third consecutive season. Having spent the 2020/21 campaign at San Siro, the 23-year-old returned to the Rossoneri in 2021, this time on a two-year loan deal.

The loan agreement between the two clubs also included a permanent purchase option that Milan could trigger this summer. In order to sign Diaz permanently, the reigning Italian champions would have to shell out a fee of €22 million.

However, there was another clause inserted in the deal that would allow Real Madrid to re-sign him for €27 million.

Diaz has thrived in Milan under the tutelage of Stefano Pioli, becoming an integral part of the team. Having helped the Rossoneri end their long-running Serie A title drought last season, he has been in good nick this term as well, with six goal involvements in 15 league games.

Milan, for their part, intend to continue employing the services of Diaz beyond the ongoing campaign. However, past reports have indicated that they would wish to discuss a lower fee than the €22 million amount agreed upon with Real Madrid.

As for the Merengues, they are open to bringing Diaz back into the fold at the Santiago Bernabeu even though they are planning to renew Luka Modric and sign Jude Bellingham in the summer.

With the likes of Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard staring at uncertain futures, coupled with Modric’s advancing age, there may be space for the versatile attacking midfielder at the Spanish capital club.

With talks set to take place between the two clubs in the near future, it will be interesting to see how things progress. A lot will depend on what Diaz sees as the best option for himself and whether he is convinced about receiving a prominent role at Madrid.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
