GdS: A goal worth €20m – Brahim Diaz could have helped decide his own future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the record shows that it was Brahim Diaz who netted the winner.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report how Milan’s budget in 2021-22 saw a loss of €66.5m but for the current season it is expected to improve to about -€25m, so it is reasonable to imagine that the next one could go very close to breaking even.

It is a huge feat considering that the 2019-20 financial year ended with a loss of €194.6m, and it shows a virtuous path that keeps getting better thanks to injections like the Scudetto win.

Reaching the quarter-finals is worth €20m to Milan and as mentioned Brahim Diaz had a leading role in helping to achieve that. While over-simplified, the money he helped the Rossoneri earn could be used to buy him permanently from Real Madrid.

Finishing in the top four will be a decisive factor, and of course it doesn’t just boil down to that, but Milan intend to work on lowering the €22m option to buy agreed with Real Madrid in 2021 as part of the current two-year loan.

A lot will depend on Real’s willingness to be flexible, but the winning goal in the last 16 tie could play a part in deciding Brahim Diaz’s future.

  1. Why not worth worth than that.? If they bought CDK for much more than that, they must just discuss with madrid to lower the price and buy him

  2. Serie a he doesn’t shine but in champions league he definitely does. He had a world class performance against Tottenham. The way teams play in champions league suits him so much, if only serie a could be the same

  3. He’s been a key member of the team recently, anyone still disputing what he brings to the team I can’t understand – he’s incredibly hard working, a proper team player, he’s been working on strength and even if end product isn’t 100%, it’s been better than previous years and any of his direct replacements
