Real Madrid youngster wants permanent transfer to AC Milan this summer
According to Sky Sports, AC Milan are set to revamp their squad ahead of the new season. The club have been earning more revenue of late, thanks to their consistent participation in the Champions League. This season, they even went on to reach the semi-final stage.
Using the additional infusion of cash, Milan will look to strengthen the team. For a start, they are expected to hold talks with Real Madrid over a permanent deal for Brahim Diaz.
Sky Sports reports Diaz is keen on a permanent move to San Siro and wants the deal to be completed. The youngster has been at Milan on loan for three years now, during which he has featured in 122 competitive appearances.
Diaz’s contributions in the attacking third have been critical in helping Milan enjoy tremendous success under the leadership of Stefano Pioli. And on the back of this success, he wants to make the relationship a permanent one.
There were talks of Real Madrid potentially including Diaz in the deal to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham. But that is not a possibility anymore.
As per the Sky Sports reports, Real Madrid should not oppose the sale of Diaz to AC Milan. However, they may demand a hefty figure for the former Man City starlet, especially after three years of success.
Brahim Diaz is expected to be in the AC Milan squad for the upcoming game against Juventus. The Rossoneri are hoping that the playmaker can once again showcase his desire to stay at San Siro by scoring and kissing the badge like he did last time.
But that won’t solve Milan’s problems. The Italian club must conjure up enough funds to be able to secure a permanent deal for the Spaniard this summer.

Real Madrid will discuss new deal for Spanish forward until 2027 – Romano
Real Madrid have officially announced the first departure of the 2022/23 season as Marco Asensio leaves the club on a free transfer. The Spaniard was part of the Madrid setup for eight years, and leaves with three Champions Leagues and La Ligas to his name.
With Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eden Hazard in the team, Asensio was the only winger in the team who preferred to play on the right rather than on the left. His left-footedness was also crucial for this.
Madrid will now have to assess the market for replacements, even though they will be handed one themselves in the summer in the form of Brahim Diaz. The Spaniard finishes his loan spell at AC Milan in the summer, and will return to Madrid.
Madrid will have to make a final call on his future, but as of now, are ready to discuss a new long-term deal for and with Diaz, as per a report published by Fabrizio Romano. The extension will be valid until 2027.
Diaz, now 23, initially joined Real Madrid from Manchester City in 2019, completing a €18 million move in the search of game-time. Six appearances in six months later, though, he moved to AC Milan on loan, and has been there since.
However, getting him to stay at Madrid will be difficult, as the player evidently wants to continue at Milan for the foreseeable future. He even suggested his desire to continue in a recent interview.
“I’m happy here at Milan. I feel very good at this club, then I don’t know what is going to happen. I kissed the badge because that’s what I felt at that moment,” he said.
They want him to replace Asensio at the Santiago Bernabeu, but will not force him to stay if he wants to leave.
