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.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
