Tuttosport: Brahim Diaz factor could see Milan go back in for €25-30m Italy forward

By Oliver Fisher -

The international break has sent the transfer market rumours into overdrive and the latest on sees AC Milan linked with a fresh move for Nicolo Zaniolo.

As reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews) this morning, it is well known that Milan made an attempt to sign Zaniolo during the January window but he ended up moving to Galatasaray after the Italian deadline had passed.

Despite this, the forward would gladly return to Italy and therefore it is not excluded that his time in Turkey could end after just six months. He would also approve of a move to the Rossoneri given that he had accepted it in the winter and was pushing for this solution.

There is another factor at play too: Brahim Diaz is expected to return to Real Madrid at the end of the season after three years on loan with Milan, and if this were the case then the Milan management would naturally be in the market for a new forward.

However, it will not be easy to snatch Zaniolo from Galatasaray because there is a €35m release clause in his deal, while his asking price in the summer should be at least €25-30m so it is an investment that the directors must evaluate carefully.

  1. Billy gilmour is worth 9 million… Would be cheaper. Not Italian but the young scots are performing well in italy. Reckon he’d be a good fit.

  2. Auour is important for Milan yes bt Milan need to sign brahim Diaz at all costs or amount bt in case Madrid choose not to sell we can find another option

    1. Are you being serious now or just being sarcastic?
      Sign the spanish midget at all costs, thanks but no thanks.

      Wasting money on him we can just as well put a gun in our heads and pull the trigger. He is no where performing as he should or putting in the performances that he should.

      People in here throw shit CDK and yet he is getting one tenth of the playing time the midget is. And people have the stomach to critizice the kid.
      CDK needs minutes on the field, the same was with Leao when he arrived he played like shit for almost 2 years yet we kept on starting him.
      The same goes for CDK he needs to start and feel there is confidence in him.

      We are playing like shit with Diaz atm so I dont see us being worse with CDK getting playing time. And besides Diaz is just loaned player time we started giving players that we own and have invested in some playing time instead.

  3. I’ll be happy to see the back of Diaz. Seems like a nice kid but in 3 years he simply failed to show any consistency or improvement. Pioli’s stupidity/stubbornness also meant he played him over CDK and Adli- Milan players.

    Would not sign Aouar either, Zaniolo could still be quality if he gets form and confidence back in Turkey.
