AC Milan are already thinking of exercising their option to buy Brahim Diaz outright from Real Madrid, despite the fact there is a buy-back involved.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), Milan consider Diaz to be at the centre of their project, and the starting attacking midfielder. That is why the management are seriously thinking of bringing forward his permanent signing from Los Blancos.
Brahim arrives from Real Madrid on a paid two-year loan which means that the Spaniard will remain with the Rossoneri until June 2023, but Milan also reserved an option for his permanent signing set at €22m. Real will have the chance to be able to buy Diaz back by paying around €27m, but Milan are not worried about that and will proceed as planned.
Brahim would not get as much playing time at Real Madrid under Carlo Ancelotti so now it is only necessary to decide if and when to attempt his signing outright.
