Brahim Diaz has insisted he isn’t giving any thought to his future beyond the current loan spell he is on at AC Milan from Real Madrid.
Brahim has netted four goals in the opening stage of the current season in all competitions, with three of them being goals that directly earned Milan three points, showing just how influential and valuable he can be now he has had time to adapt.
MilanNews recently reported that the 22-year-old has always been considered by the management as a player who could become one of the best in his position, and his performances in the first part of the season have justified their decision to bring him back on a two-year loan, while they are already thinking of paying the €19m needed to sign him outright.
Brahim spoke to Spanish newspaper El Pais and spoke on Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the game against Atletico Madrid tonight, but he also recalled what he learned from the various coaches he has worked with in his career.
“With Guardiola I learned to read spaces and work when you lose the ball to recover it quickly, because with possession you run less. All this. But not only with Guardiola. Even with Zidane and Pioli it’s the same. Maybe here I learned to defend better and position myself better,” he said (via MilanNews).
He was also asked a question about his future given that he is at Milan on a two-year loan with an option to buy and a buy-back in favour of Real Madrid.
“Now I’m at Milan, I’m focused only on Milan where I want to give the best. I follow Real from afar, but now I’m here, I’m enjoying what I like, that is playing football for a great club like Milan.”
