MN: Milan intend to use €19m option to sign Real Madrid playmaker – player happy to stay

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan fully intend to exercise the option to buy they managed to agree as part of Brahim Diaz’s return on loan, according to a report.

MilanNews writes that Brahim Diaz has always been considered by the management as a player who could become one of the best in his position, and his performances in the first part of the season have justified their decision to bring him back.

Brahim has netted four goals in the opening eight games so far this season in all competitions, with three of them being goals that directly earned Milan three points, showing just how influential and valuable he can be now he has had time to adapt.

The report adds that Milan as a club have every intention of activating the €19m clause built in to the agreement with Real Madrid to keep Brahim at Milanello. The player is very happy at Milan, and feels part of the project.

  1. He is fantastic! I didn’t expect that he may show up such a great start. Kinda short, no muscles at all, and looks small considering how athletic are defenders in Serie A. I thought he would struggle a lot. Same as Castillejo. But Brahim is kinda a master. And what is the most important — he is a motivated fighter.

  2. This article leaves out two massive details.

    First, Madrid have a buy back option meaning if Milan use their buy option then Madrid can buy him back. Milan would end up making a small profit but Brahim would go back to Madrid.

    Second, Braham has made it clear he dreams of leading the Madrid attack. If there is any chance of him being a starter at Madrid then he would choose Madrid over Milan in a heartbeat and I certainly don’t blame him. Especially when you add in that he is from Spain. Additionally, Madrid management seems to hint that he has a future at Madrid.

    Maldini etc deserve massive praise for getting Brahim on a two year loan. It gives him time to develop and become the center of the team to really push for a trophy. It also increases the chance that he decides to stay. It’s a win/win situation even if he goes back.

  3. I want to give credit to Theo Hernandez here. It seems like he has really helped Brahim settle and that they are genuine friends off the pitch. That psychological safety and connection matters A LOT.

    Lucas Paqueta cited the loneliness and isolation as a reason why he struggled at Milan. Wanting to feel part of something and form connections is a basic human need.

    If Brahim continues to play, excel and ultimately feels connected to the city of Milan and envisions himself staying long term, the clubs will find a deal. Even if it’s Milan exercising its option, Madrid exercising its buy back and Milan paying a higher number in the end to cement a deal.
