AC Milan fully intend to sit at the negotiating table with Real Madrid and Manchester United to try and sign Brahim Diaz and Diogo Dalot permanently.
Milan secured the signing of the playmaker and the full-back on season-long loan deals during the summer transfer window, but there has already been widespread speculation that it was with the view to a more permanent deal.
La Gazzetta dello Sport perhaps state the obvious in their latest report by claiming that the only way Milan can keep both players is if they re-discuss the formula with their parent clubs throughout the season.
However, the newspaper adds that this is something that ‘they absolutely intend to do’, but given that Brahim cost Real Madrid €17m and Dalot cost €22m for United, it could require a big outlay.
Qualification for the Champions League would go a long way to achieving that given the extra revenue that it brings, but it will not be an easy negotiation, especially having seen how far United pushed Roma in the Chris Smalling negotiations.
