Mediaset: Brahim Diaz ready to fly to Italy as Real Madrid and Milan conclude €18-20m deal

By Oliver Fisher -

Real Madrid forward Brahim Diaz is all ready to travel to Italy and complete his move to AC Milan, according to a report.

There has been persistent speculation over the past few days that Milan are in talks with Real Madrid over the 21-year-old playmaker, and SportMediaset (via MilanLive) believes the outcome will be positive.

The outlet claims that negotiation between the Rossoneri and Los Blancos is now in the final stages. The former Manchester City man should arrive at on loan with an option to buy set at €18-20million, but Real will have a buy-back option though the figure of that is not yet clear.

Once the final details of the operation have been resolved, Brahim Diaz will fly to Milan to start his new adventure. The player is described as very motivated, and hopes to retrace the footsteps of Theo Hernandez, who also passed through Real Madrid and then exploded at Milan.

Pioli will welcome a tactically flexible player, since he is able to play both as a playmaker and as a winger.
