Di Marzio: Milan will make just €2m if Real Madrid decide to buy back playmaker

By Isak Möller -

Milan are closing in on the signing of Brahim Diaz, who spent the last season on a dry loan at the club. It’s a big boost for the Rossoneri, especially since Hakan Calhanoglu has left and a No.10 is very much needed. 

According to Gianluca Di Marzio last night, as cited by MilanNews, the negotiations between Milan and Real Madrid have proceeded quickly. An agreement is now very close on the basis of a loan with an option to buy.

The Rossoneri will pay €2-3m for the loan and the buy-out option will be set at €22m, taking it up to €25m in total. The buy-back clause will be set at €27m, which in theory means the Spanish side would have to pay just €2m to get him back.

Of course, everything will depend on the performances of Diaz, as it’s very possible that he might not fit the plans of Carlo Ancelotti’s side. Furthermore, the relations between Milan and Real are very good.

    Makes no sense, because it controls the market we have for the player, remember morata and Juventus to chelsea, where Madrid saw opportunity, bought him and sold him to chelsea, instead of Juventus making most of that deal. Do better🤦🏾‍♂️

  2. Kilroy says:

    horrible deal. its basically a dry loan disguised as a loan with option.

  3. Rodger says:

    This article (and comments) are missing the fact that player amortisation means that it will look a lot better for Milan for they buy him and Madrid buy him back two years later – it would still have capital gains for that future season. Say he signed a 4 year contract and Madrid signed him back after 2, he’d have a book value of 11m and be sold for 27m.
