When Real Madrid signed Brahim Diaz from Manchester City in 2019, the youngster was touted as one of the biggest talents in Spanish football. Diaz signed a six-year contract with Los Blancos, a clear indication of the trust they had in the player.

However, the youngster’s return to Spain was cut short in just two years. After a dry spell in the Spanish capital, he departed to AC Milan on a two-year loan deal.

Now, there is another twist the Diaz’s story. Despite there being another year on the player’s loan at AC Milan, Real Madrid are looking to bring him back home in the summer according to Sergio Santos.

There is a gentleman’s agreement between the two sides by which the player’s decision will always be respected. However, it remains to be seen as to what Diaz thinks of Real Madrid’s interest.

The 22-year-old has seen a wave of opportunities in Italy, starting 22 games in Serie A so far. His prominent role in Stefano Pioli’s setup has seen him earn international call ups from Luis Enrique’s La Roja.

With the World Cup nearing, the youngster wants to be in the constant spotlight to earn a call-up to Qatar. Keeping that in mind, he will only return to Real Madrid if he is guaranteed minutes under Carlo Ancelotti.

In 22 league starts this season, Diaz has scored three goals and provided as many assists. He has created two big chances and averages 1.1 key passes per game. Needless to say, he will be a valuable asset to the Galacticos’ setup.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
