GdS: Clauses, budget and Real Madrid’s plan – the situation regarding Brahim Diaz’s future

By Oliver Fisher -

By the end of the season AC Milan must make a decision on whether to try and sign Brahim Diaz permanently, and at the moment the answer ‘seems rather obvious’.

La Gazzetta dello Sport recalls how Brahim has demonstrated his qualities in recent games playing with confidence and conviction, as the goals against Juventus and Monza (a brace) at San Siro showed.

The Spaniard has not had a middle ground since he arrived in the summer of 2020 as he has alternated great performances in which he looked head and shoulders above the others with those showing anonymity.

The current muscular trouble is frustrating because it risks spoiling the party right at the time he was getting going, but the hope is he can play a part of the game against Torino on Sunday after sitting out the win in Zagreb.

His first goal against Monza showcased all of his skills as the long pass from was collected on the halfway line, and he touched the ball eight times – five with his left foot and three with his right – showing his ability to switch between one foot and the other without losing speed or affecting ball control.

During the summer he seemed almost destined to return to Real Madrid prematurely, but then it was decided to complete the two-year loan. Reflections are underway and Milan know that they must pay €22m to sign the 23-year-old permanently, but Real have a buy-back at €27m.

His performance in the coming months, the budget that Milan will have next summer and Real Madrid’s thoughts will all be key in what ends up happening, but at the moment there seems to be the desire to keep him around.

  1. CDK and Adli doesn’t have fast pace like Diaz. So, i think Milan should buy Diaz to give more variety for CAM options. CDK and Adli can offer good key pass and pinpoint cross while Diaz offer fast pace and dribbling.

    And not just Diaz is pretty “cheap” at €22 million for a 23 years old with potential but he doesn’t need to adapt with Pioli strategy/formation anymore compare to bringing in a new player.

  2. If he continues to play as he has the last few weeks, and i hope he does, Milan will be put in a tough situation where they’ll have to spend 22 mil on him.
    He probably would rather stay at Milan and fight for a starting job than go back to Real and sit on the bench behind Vini and Valverde,
    Pioli would have to find a way to fit both Brahim and CDK in the line up

  3. Some sources told that we don’t have the buy out option, some said we do. The only certain thing that it was not disclosed in the Milan’s official statement. So we’ll see how this plays out.

  4. 2 early to tell. he has a habit of starting strong and fade in second part of the season. Getting another AM player similiar to diaz shouldnt be that hard if it comes to that

  5. If the buy back clause is not mandatory (we won’t be forced to sell, and only active if they want to buy him and we want to sell) and its not permanent (expired after 1 season) then why not?

    He is still young, and has margins of improvement. He seemed like a nice lad and he love Milan, too.

  6. We shall see about all these clauses. In any event, if we do have an option to buy it probably doesn’t have to be exercised until June, so it’s premature to speculate one whether this would be a good signing or not at this point. Let’s see how Diaz and CDK’s seasons pan out. Ideally they both end this season playing well, in which case maybe we sign Diaz and somehow play them both. Diaz has shown well on the right flank. Perhaps it’s time for Pioli to try CDK at AMC and Diaz at RW from the start?
