AC Milan will soon begin talks with Real Madrid over the permanent signing of Brahim Diaz, according to a report.
Brahim Diaz is now on his third season on loan from Real Madrid at Milan having initially joined for the 2020-21 season on a season-long spell and then coming back on a two-year loan deal in the summer of 2021.
The Spanish playmaker has enjoyed the trust of head coach Stefano Pioli throughout his spell but particularly this season where he has been the starting attacking midfielder more often than not despite the signing of Charles De Ketelaere for over €30m.
As Gianluca Di Marzio reported on Sky (via MilanNews), Milan will get in touch with Real Madrid in the next few days to discuss the permanent purchase of Brahim Diaz.
Reports at the time of Brahim re-signing in 2021 suggested there was an option to buy as part of his loan but this was always denied by Spanish sources, so some negotiating will likely be needed for him to become a permanent Milan player.
