According to journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano (h/t MadridZone), Real Madrid are already in talks with the agent of Brahim Diaz over a new contract.

Diaz is currently away on loan at AC Milan, but Romano reckons that the Spaniard returning to the Santiago Bernabeu for next season is a ‘huge possibility’.

Real Madrid signed Diaz from Manchester City back in January 2019, but the Spanish attacking midfielder could not find regular game-time at the club. Hence, he was loaned out to AC Milan for the 2020/21 campaign during which he fared impressively.

So much so that the Rossoneri returned to sign him on a two-year loan deal in 2021. The loan agreement also includes an option for the Serie A champions to sign Diaz permanently for a fee of €22 million, with Real Madrid retaining the option of re-signing him for €27 million.

Milan wish to sign the 23-year-old permanently but want to negotiate a lower fee. However, it seems like Real Madrid are ready to integrate Diaz into their first-team plans for the next season.

The former Manchester City ace has primarily played as a central attacking midfielder at Milan but has the attributes to be effective from the right flank or as a No. 8.

Considering that the futures of Marco Asensio, Luka Modric, and Dani Ceballos are far from certain, the Spaniard could find a spot for himself in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans for next season.

Diaz’s current contract with Real Madrid runs until the summer of 2025 and the Merengues are already talking with his entourage about an extension.

So, as things stand, all things point towards Diaz becoming a part of the Real Madrid first-team setup come next season, with his time at AC Milan set to draw to an end.

Real Madrid locker room angry with Barcelona midfielder’s ‘unsportsmanlike’ behaviour – report

While the evident frustration among the Real Madrid players was quite visible following the recent 1-2 defeat against Barcelona, the feeling of vexation was not really limited on the field.

Journalist Mario Cortegana, while writing for The Athletic, has confirmed that once the players got into the dressing room, the environment had an air of anger and frustration. 

Players from each team had a go at each other right till the end, especially the likes of Dani Carvajal and Arnau Tenas, who had to be separated by several members from both teams.

Interestingly, before the aforementioned incident, Barcelona midfielder Gavi was already causing some trouble on the field. The youngster did not shy away from putting his body on the line throughout the game and it annoyed Madrid players to the extreme.

First, he pushed Carvajal in one incident and after that, he entangled himself in an off-the-ball clash with Dani Ceballos. The Madrid midfielder first had a collision with Robert Lewandowski and as the game moved on, Gavi made note of the incident.

During the run of play, Gavi pushed Ceballos with his shoulder and it did not settle well with the Madrid players and manager Carlo Ancelotti. The players and the manager were disturbed by Gavi’s behaviour and considered it ‘unsportsmanlike’.

On the other hand, there was frustration involving refereeing decisions as well. It must be remembered that in the 82nd minute, Marco Asensio found the back of the net to send the Madrid fans into a frenzy.

The celebration, however, was cut short as VAR disallowed the goal for an extremely tight offside. “We are sad, frustrated,” a dressing room source told The Athletic. “What happened? A guy looking at a TV in Madrid has decided La Liga.”

Ancelotti, on his part, said: “The disallowed goal? I don’t know, I really don’t know. I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know. I’m leaving with this doubt. If the VAR is sure.”

“I leave this match very proud. I don’t think we deserved to lose today,” he added.
