CorSport: Milan ready to meet Real Madrid over playmaker’s future – the two options

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are keen on keeping Brahim Diaz beyond the expiry of his loan next June and there are two options that may allow them to do so.

Milan signed Brahim from Real Madrid on a dry loan until the end of the current season, which means that as it stands he will be going back to the Spanish capital in a matter of months.

As il Corriere dello Sport reports (via MilanLive), directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara failed to include an option to buy in the agreement but did obtain from Real Madrid the opportunity to re-discuss the future of the Spanish talent during the season.

The paper adds that there will be meetings to try and resolve the future of the 21-year-old playmaker – who has three goals already for Milan – with two options on the table.

The first is that Milan buy him outright at the end of the season by paying the asking price, and the second involved the extension of his loan for another year with an option to buy being included in that.

The former Manchester City man is currently valued at €25m, a figure that the Rossoneri can only think of spending if they qualify for the next Champions League.
