According to a report from ABC (h/t Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid are ready to hand Brahim Diaz an opportunity to make a breakthrough in the first team next season.

Diaz is currently on the second of his two-year loan spell at AC Milan. With 16 goals and 10 assists in 109 competitive matches, the former Manchester City starlet has been a bankable player or the Rossoneri.

Therefore, AC Milan are reportedly keen to make efforts to sign him on a permanent deal at the end of the season, although at a lower fee than the €22 million price agreed upon as part of the loan agreement.

Real Madrid, though, appear to rate him highly and are willing to accommodate him in their first-team plans next season.

Real Madrid’s plan to incorporate Brahim Diaz starts with giving the player a contract extension. His current deal at the club expires in 2025, but the club are set to hand him a renewal that could extend his contract till 2027. There will also be a salary increase.

Real Madrid’s convincing to incorporate Diaz into the teams comes after positive feedback from Paolo Maldini and Stefano Pioli. His growth in Milan is understood to have impressed the Real Madrid coaching staff.

The Whites even see him as a viable option in the right-wing position – someone who can provide depth and has the ability to make himself a first-team regular.

This also comes against the backdrop of uncertainty surrounding the future of Marco Asensio. Although the Spaniard is in talks with the club over a renewal, he has been courted by a host of top clubs across Europe, who are willing to provide him with more game-time.

That is Brahim Diaz comes into the fray, and it will be interesting to see whether or not the former Man City starlet has what it takes to become successful at Santiago Bernabeu.

Transfer Triumph: In-demand defender picks Real Madrid above other suitors

Real Madrid have received a major transfer boost as Lille defender, Leny Yoro, has chosen to join Los Blancos over other interested clubs, reports Alejandro Alcazar via SPORT.

When Paris Saint-Germain attempted to negotiate a deal with Lille, offering more money than Real Madrid, Yoro made it clear he preferred the Spanish giants. 

Despite PSG’s efforts, including meetings with Yoro’s representatives, they could not convince him to change his mind.

Interestingly, the outlet mentions that Yoro is following a similar path to his compatriot Aurelien Tchouameni, who also chose Real Madrid despite competition from PSG and several Premier League teams. 

Real Madrid really value Yoro

Real Madrid see Yoro as a valuable addition, especially with the recent departure of Nacho. This move has made it crucial for the club to find a reliable replacement, and Yoro is their chosen candidate. 

It is to be noted that Yoro has one year remaining on his contract with Lille, who initially asked for a hefty €100 million transfer fee.

This amount was considered too high for a player who could leave for free after a year. Lille eventually reduced the asking price to €60 million, an amount that PSG and other clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool were willing to meet. 

However, Real Madrid were not prepared to pay more than €30 million, knowing that Yoro wanted to join them and could do so for free next year.

What is Real Madrid’s strategy?

It is said that Real Madrid’s initial plan was to let Yoro play one more year at Lille and sign him for free in 2025. They were even ready to offer Yoro a special signing bonus, similar to what they did with David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger, which would be added to his salary. 

But Nacho’s departure changed everything. Real Madrid now urgently need a fourth central defender, prompting them to enter negotiations with Lille, something they had previously avoided.

To secure Yoro’s signing this summer, Real Madrid are considering raising their offer to €40 million, including performance-based bonuses. 

Lille might accept this offer, knowing that Yoro could either join Real Madrid now or stay for another year and leave for free.
