CM: Maldini intends to leverage desire of trequartista in meeting with Real Madrid – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been dealt a big boost in their hopes of keeping Brahim Diaz beyond the end of the season, a report claims.

The Spaniard put in a potential man of the match performance on Sunday night, repaying Stefano Pioli’s faith by scoring a fantastic opening goal and causing Juve’s defence no end of problems during an excellent 3-0 win.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Brahim Diaz is very happy at Milan and would gladly stay with the Rossoneri for another season. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara intend to leverage this desire in their meeting with Real Madrid which is scheduled for about 10 days time and will be centred around the future of the Spaniard.

In Spain, the newspaper AS reaffirms Milan’s desire to keep Brahim but Real Madrid would like to avoid permanently losing a player so young and talented, however the former Manchester City starlet wants more playing time and guarantees.
