As reported by ABC SPORT (h/t Madrid Xtra), a meeting between the representatives of Real Madrid and AC Milan is scheduled for next month and the topic of discussion is going to be a certain Brahim Diaz.

Diaz, 23, is in his third loan spell with Milan and over the years, the winger has established himself as a key member of the squad. This season, the Spaniard has made 25 appearances across all competitions, scoring four goals and two assists.

A lot has been said about Diaz’s future in the media. For once, Milan’s technical director Paolo Maldini plans to keep him at San Siro and is willing to start a healthy negotiation with Madrid for that.

Interestingly enough, although Stefano Pioli has shown immense faith in the youngster, Milan have intention to pay more than €13-15 million for the attacking midfielder. As for Madrid, the quoted price in case of a permanent acquisition is believed to be around €22 million.

On the other hand, it is believed that Milan have more or less made peace with the fact that Diaz’s departure is certain in the summer. Although there has been a debate regarding whether or not there is a buy option in his loan deal, Milan expect Madrid to go soft as part of the gentleman’s agreement given that the player will complete three years in Italian Serie A.

As it turns out, however, the player is tipped to move back to Real Madrid and in turn, the Serie A side will turn towards a certain Houssem Aouar of Olympique Lyonnais.

Milan’s interest in acquiring Aouar solely depends on what happens with Diaz. If Diaz is to continue, the team will have no place to accommodate Aouar, but in case the Spaniard does, in fact, move back to Madrid, Milan will launch an offer for the Lyon captain.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all monitoring Bayer Leverkusen and Germany wonderkid Florian Wirtz.

After recovering from his ACL injury, the teenage sensation has been slowly working his way back to his best form. So far this term, Wirtz has managed to rack up a tally of two goals and six assists from 13 matches in all competitions.

The 19-year-old’s talent and potential have never been in question and hence it does not come as a surprise that elite clubs such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all keeping tabs on the German international.

A versatile attacking midfielder, Wirtz is capable of playing anywhere in the final third of the pitch and backs up with top-notch end product. Be it as a false-nine or in a more withdrawn role, the youngster has excelled for Bayer Leverkusen, catching the attention of top teams.

Real Madrid, for their part, are also understood to be among Wirtz’s admirers. Given the situation surrounding Karim Benzema’s fitness and the lack of backup at the top, the youngster could be an option, as he has shown potential while operating through the middle.

But Barcelona also have a strong interest in the teenager with reports even suggesting that they have already made contact with his father to enquire about his situation.

At the same time, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is understood to be a huge admirer of his fellow German and with Roberto Firmino on his way out, Wirtz could be lined up as a possible replacement.

However, Romano adds that the expectation is that Wirtz could stay at Bayer Leverkusen for one more year and depart Germany once the UEFA Euro 2024 is out of the way.

For now, there have been talks or negotiations with any clubs, but Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are all tracking Wirtz and his progress in Germany.
