CM: Brahim Diaz’s stay uncertain as Milan plan to open double axis with Jorge Mendes

By Oliver Fisher -

Even though he is only halfway through his two-year loan spell from Real Madrid, Brahim Diaz’s future remains uncertain heading into the summer.

As per, the future of the Spanish playmaker is among the situations that Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara will have to face after returning from their short vacation in Ibiza. Brahim Diaz started well and scored 3 goals in his first 6 league games (all winners), but was stopped by Covid and then never recovered his form.

Stefano Pioli in the end opted to use Franck Kessie and Rade Krunic in the role of attacking midfielder towards the business end of the season, and is awaiting a new signing for that role this summer.

Competition is likely to increase significantly, and while Brahim Diaz is on loan until June 2023 with an option to buy set at €22m (with a buy-back of €27m), that figure is currently considered too high by the Rossoneri management, who have planned a more sizeable investment to sign a player like Charles De Ketelaere.

This therefore raises questions about the role that Diaz could play at Milan next season. Relations with Real Madrid are very good and could also extend to the future of Marco Asensio, who is one of the players identified by Maldini as a potential opportunity.

He recently changes agent to Jorge Mendes, with whom Milan are also negotiating the renewal of Rafael Leao and the possible arrival of Renato Sanches, so the squad could change dramatically Brahim’s stay is far from obvious.

  1. Why wouldn’t it be obvious? It’s a very favourable loan deal, just keep him on loan for another year. He offers another option in any case.

  2. He isn’t up to it. I’d send Diaz back and save on wages. Have Adli coming and if De Ketelaere or similar comes in Diaz will just be on the bench waiting for Coppa Italia matches.

  3. Adli, Krunic, renato sanches and even pobega wenn needed, but no CL AM material, hope we sign kete and lang/zaniolo or both if we sell leao. We already have 2 starters for DC, kjaer can play there bit we can go for someone cheaper.
    If we sign those 2 zaniolo/lang and kete we dont even need much a striker, they are both good at man beating and we could be numerical superior in front and would be more than enough to stay with origi and giroud up front. They are both experienced and pretty much clinical enough and good in air.
    We only need a cover for theo, maybe buy florenzi or someone else, renew roma or buy someone else but care much there to be honest, i would also try with gabbia tbh, buy kete, sanches and zaniolo/lang, sign origi and we are good enough everywhere. Pobega and adli is coming so multiple tactical posibilities and changes
