Real Madrid loanee set to return after loan spell in Serie A
Brahim Diaz has become a hot topic recently, as uncertainties over his future continue to mount amid reports linking him to a return to Real Madrid.
The Spanish forward had joined the Rossoneri on a two-year loan deal in 2021 and he has since enjoyed a successful time in San Siro. He played a key role in helping the team secure the Serie A title last season.
Diaz’s loan spell at Milan expires at the end of the season, with reports suggesting that he will be called back by Real Madrid.
According to Diario AS, AC Milan are determined to keep hold of Diaz. But it looks increasingly likely that he will return to Real Madrid at the end of the season. Real Madrid reportedly have a lot of faith in Diaz’s development and are keen to integrate him into their first-team squad next season.
There are concerns over the future of Marco Asensio and Dani Ceballos as their contracts expire at the end of the season. The possibility of Asensio renewing his contract at Santiago Bernabeu is ‘practically impossible’ as per various reports in Spain.
If Asensio and Ceballos leave Real Madrid, it could open the door for Diaz to make his mark in the first team. Diaz is a versatile attacking player who can play as a winger or an attacking midfielder, and he has the potential to become a key player for Real Madrid in the future.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for Diaz, but his performances at AC Milan have certainly caught the eye of Real Madrid, who are even reportedly willing to hand him a fresh deal until 2027 this coming summer.

Real Madrid winger has two future destinations on table for next season
Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.
Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.
According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.
Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.
After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.
Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.
The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.
However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.
Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
