Brahim Diaz is one of the few Real Madrid players not on international duty at the moment. Having decided to represent the Moroccan flag earlier this year, the winger is enjoying a hiatus before the start of the new campaign.

With players likely to return relatively fatigued and without much rest, Diaz is expected to be crucial for both Real Madrid’s pre-season and the beginning of the new campaign.

He will, however, not find it as simple to receive minutes as last season given the arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick.

Speaking at a recent event, Real Madrid superstar Brahim Diaz spoke on his feelings at the club, the season ahead and how he was looking forward to returning to action.

The Spanish-Moroccan star, who is being courted by Saudi Arabia, began his interview by revealing how playing for Los Blancos required one to be on their toes at all times, saying,

“The level of Real Madrid you know what it is, which requires you to give the most of yourself every day.”

Commenting on the season up ahead and his expectations from the campaign, he said,

“Next season will be better than the last.”

Finally, Diaz spoke on how he looked forward to linking up with the new players arriving who will only elevate the level of the Champions League-winning squad.

“I am very happy at Real Madrid and that there are good players coming. This is Real Madrid, we must have the best players in the world,” he proclaimed.

Last season, Diaz participated in 31 La Liga games for the Merengues and recorded eight goals and six assists in the process.

The versatile winger is expected to return to training later this month for Carlo Ancelotti’s pre-season but will miss a part of the campaign for the AFCON.

Real Madrid defender set to stay after requesting to see out his contract

Real Madrid welcomed four players back from loan this summer: Reinier, Rafa Marin, Juanmi Latasa, and Jesus Vallejo and bid goodbye to Marin already, while the others are expected to evaluate their futures with the club.

Vallejo joined Real Madrid in 2015, but he has primarily played on loan at other teams, including Real Zaragoza, VfB Stuttgart, Wolves, and Granada twice.

Having concluded his third stint at Granada, the player is back in the Spanish capital and now seeks a resolution over his future.

Indeed, according to AS, Jesus Vallejo recently met with Real Madrid and made a request to fulfill the final year of his contract.

The club has opted not to exert pressure, leaving his future in his own hands: whether he decides to leave or stay, they support his decision.

After all, Vallejo has been with the club for several years, and Real Madrid intends to honour the wishes of one of the players who have been at the club for the longest time.

The 27-year-old centre-back was a part of the Real Madrid squad in the 2021/2022 season and played sparingly.

But he proved to be a dependable option when called upon and enjoyed a memorable performance in the Champions League against Manchester City as a late substitute.

Due to Real Madrid’s options at the back and the potential signing of Leny Yoro, Vallejo is unlikely to find regular game time if he opts to stay put.

Despite managing just three appearances for relegated Granada last season due to an injury, Vallejo looks forward to putting his physical woes behind him and starting afresh.
