CorSera: Brahim Diaz repays Pioli’s trust in a big way – Milan ponder negotiation with Real Madrid

By Oliver Fisher -

The future of Brahim Diaz is still yet to be written, a report claims, but his performance against Juventus certainly helps his chances of staying at Milan.

As il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), the young Spanish attacking midfielder – deployed behind Ibrahimovic – put in an excellent performance as he scored the goal that opened the scoring, he won the penalty that was then missed by Kessie and was a thorn in the side of the Juventus defence.

Pioli praised the Real Madrid loanee after the game for his performance: “Diaz was the right player for the right match, it’s not over yet but it’s it was a great victory.” In the last few weeks Diaz has not played much, but in the most important game of the season he repaid the trust of his coach in a big way.

Soon it will be time for the management to decide what to do with Brahim, who is on loan at Milan from Real. There is no option to buy, so it will be necessary to negotiate with Los Blancos again if they want to keep him. His future is still to be written, but qualification for the next Champions League could help.
