According to Mario Cortegana of The Athletic, Real Madrid and Brahim Diaz have reached an agreement in principle over a new contract for the midfielder until the summer of 2027.

Diaz, who is currently away on loan at AC Milan, has been on Real Madrid’s books since 2019 when he arrived from Manchester City.

The young attacking midfielder did not get a lot of minutes with the first-team setup upon his arrival and thus left for AC Milan on loan in the summer of 2020.

After enjoying a decent season, Diaz returned to the Rossoneri again in 2021, this time on a two-year loan deal with an option to make the transfer permanent for €22 million, with Real Madrid retaining the choice to sign him back for €27 million.

The 23-year-old has been excelling at San Siro and is a vital part of Stefano Pioli’s side. A meeting is set to take place between the two clubs imminently to see where they stand with regard to plans for the Spaniard.

In the meantime, though, Real Madrid have swiftly negotiated and agreed a contract extension with Diaz, even though it is still unclear where he will be playing football next season.

Diaz, whose current contract at Madrid runs until 2025, is set to be topped up by two more years, furthering his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu until the summer of 2027. The attacking midfielder will also get a salary hike, which will place him among the mid-level earners in the squad.

The 23-year-old has always wanted to fight for his place and succeed at Real Madrid. The officials have seen him as a player of a potentially similar profile to Luka Modric in the past.

With the veteran’s extension not certain, there could be a place for Diaz in the squad next season. Whether Los Blancos opt to renew Marco Asensio or not could also have a bearing on what the future holds for the former Manchester City ace.

Spain will begin their UEFA Euro 2024 journey in a little over an hour with a clash against Croatia at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

Ahead of the match, Luis de la Fuente has announced the starting lineup that will be taking the field for La Roja and two Real Madrid stars feature in the team.

Indeed, Los Blancos’ captain Nacho Fernandez gets the nod as one of the centre-backs amid some injury concerns for Spain.

Meanwhile, Dani Carvajal holds on to his usual place as the right-back for La Roja against Croatia.

There is no place in the starting lineup for Real Madrid forward Joselu, though, with De la Fuente preferring Alvaro Morata as his No. 9 instead.

Meanwhile, Croatia have also announced their starting lineup, and Real Madrid midfielder and legend Luka Modric starts in midfield and also captains the team against two of his club teammates today.

Former Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic also features for Croatia against Spain.
