Real Madrid’s policy of loaning out players for development seems to be panning out well for the European champions. Of the several players rendering their services at other clubs, Brahim Diaz seems to be one that has caught his parent club’s attention.
According to reports from AS (h/t Madrid Xtra), Los Blancos are closely monitoring Diaz’s situation and development. They hope to bring back the youngster in the summer.
Carlo Ancelotti views the attacking midfielder as a versatile player who would add dynamic flexibility to his tactics in the final third. In specific, he sees Diaz as a good option for the right wing where the team still do not have a guaranteed starter.
Rodrygo Goes, Marco Asensio, and Federico Valverde all continue to fight for the regular starting spot on the right, but none have convinced with consistency.
Diaz, meanwhile, has showcased during his time at AC Milan that he can be an option on the right flank. In addition to having a great passer of the ball, he has proven to be a direct threat to the opponent’s goal.
In just 16 games for the Italians, he has scored four goals and provided two assists. Meanwhile, he has created six big chances and averages 1.3 key passes per game.
Diaz’s current loan at Milan sees him at the club until June 2023. It has been reported that the Rossoneri have the option to make his transfer permanent for a fee of €22 million, although Real Madrid can re-sign him for €27 million.
The Serie A champions are planning to hold talks with Real Madrid over his future soon, although it seems like the Merengues will want to keep Diaz around at the Bernabeu for next season.
Real Madrid want to bring radical changes in Spanish refereeing system – report
Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.
The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid.
Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit.
Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.
Real Madrid not hiding their discontent
The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.
Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit.
For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.
Real Madrid are suspicious
Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition.
For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.
As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.
Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
