CM: Why Kamada’s arrival does not rule out potential signing of Real Madrid man

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are very close to formalising the signing of Daichi Kamada on a free transfer but that does not rule out the permanent signing of Brahim Diaz, a report claims.

According to, some took the news that Kamada is on the verge of signing for Milan on a multi-year deal as confirmation that Brahim will not be staying, perhaps because the fee is too high or because Real Madrid intend to bring him back to replace the departing Marco Asensio.

The latter still remains a probable scenario at this stage, but it is not automatic despite the arrival of the Japan international on a free transfer when his deal with Eintracht Frankfurt runs out.

The reason for that is not just economic given that Kamada will arrive without a transfer fee having to be paid out, but also positional in terms of constructing the attack for 2023-24 onwards.

Brahim has also shown that he can play both in the centre and on the right of the attacking trident, offering his best performances on the wing where one of either Junior Messias or Alexis Saelemaekers could leave.

Given the Belgian or the Brazilian could depart, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are not closing the door the possibility of using Diaz as a winger in the event of an agreement being reached with Real Madrid.

Of couse that would then be a boost for Charles De Ketelaere who would in theory remain as the deputy No.10, with the situation perhaps to be reviewed when Ismael Bennacer comes back from injury midway through the season.

De Ketelaere could even be sold if a club offers a sum similar to the €35m Milan invested, but the former Club Brugge man has seen his value drop significantly so Milan will have to try to relaunch him in some way.

As for Diaz, Milan have an option to buy set at €22m but Real Madrid have a buy-back set at a few million higher. A lot will depend on the plan of Los Blancos and the will of the player. What is certain is that Kamada’s arrival does not push anyone out.

  1. Junior messias should leave Alexis saelermakers should stayed he is part of the Milan team giving all his best kalulu should stayed tomori must leave the coach is just trying to favor tomori kalulu is more than perfect.the line up should be Kalulu/thiaw, Kjaer bcos Kjaer has a lot of experience than tomori only bcos the coach is doing favouritism.

    1. stupid question. Why “Let Diaz go” ? if real madrid has a buy back clause, can we just call their bluff? . If they wanted him so bad, we can say we buy him and madrid will buy him back. We can pocket a few millions there. As supposed to ending his loan and be done. No? lol

      1. I don’t think Real really wants him (They just spend a lot of money on a new CM/AM). Real just want to cash in on Diaz. So if we buy him they wont buy him back unless some other team offers them more than the buy back clause (27mil). Which is very unlikely since Diaz is just not that good. So we will just be stuck with him. While we can get someone more talented like Baldanzi for cheaper.

  2. Please let Diaz go home to madrid. Replace him with pessina or zaccagni. Naturally italian playmaker. Or we can hope to Dybala with loan formula.

  3. Milan need at least 2 player who can hold, dribble and distribution ball like bennacer. Milan only have bennacer.

  4. It looks like Kamada and CDK will play as AM and Brahim and Saelesmeker will play RM. Junior M will be sold.

    1. I think another winger will be purchased for the right wing and if we keep Diaz he can challenge for both wings , definitely an upgrade. Kamada and De ketelaere will take the playmaker position…RLC(if he is bought as is being suggested) and Isma will also play the no. 10 on some games when needed. What’s for sure these purchases will make the squad stronger even though a young defensive midfielder would be more important then keeping Pobega.

  5. Diaza poslat natrag !!! Real blefira jer po meni on tamo nema mjesta ni u snovima !! Real ima odličan upravni aparat koji če prodat i ono što nevalja za razliku od nas !!! Došao Kamada imamo Carsa De Katelara Adlija a i Lotus Chrek može igrat tu poziciju !!! kao i Krunić !!
