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 maintain full confidence in Turkish starlet despite injury woes

Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
