Real Madrid have officially confirmed that Brahim Diaz has returned to the club after spending three years on loan at AC Milan. The Merengues have also revealed that the 23-year-old playmaker has committed his future to the club until June 30, 2027.

Diaz signed for Real Madrid from Manchester City in January 2019, but found game-time hard to come by over the next eighteen months or so.

As a result, he was loaned out to AC Milan in the summer of 2020 for a season. Upon returning, he re-signed for the Rossoneri, this time on a two-year loan deal and helped them win the Serie A title in 2021/22 and reach the UEFA Champions League semi-final in 2022/23.

Having become a fundamental player at San Siro, Diaz was wanted on a permanent deal by Milan. But, Real Madrid have managed to secure his return to the club and have even extended his contract until 2027.

“Real Madrid CF announces that on Tuesday, June 13, at 12:00 at Real Madrid City, the presentation ceremony for Brahim Díaz will take place, who will return as a player for our club until June 30, 2027, after his loan for three seasons at AC Milan,” the official statement from the club reads.

Diaz technically becomes the third new arrival for Real Madrid heading into the summer window after Borussia Dortmund confirmed Jude Bellingham’s transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu earlier this week, which was followed by the Merengues’ announcement of the capture of Fran Garcia.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
