AC Milan are unlikely to keep Brahim Diaz beyond the end of the season and are already lining up his replacement, a report claims.
According to MilanNews, it will be ‘difficult’ for Milan to buy Brahim from Real Madrid and the most likely situation is that he returns to his parent club once the current season ends. There is the possibility of renewing his loan, but it seems like the club are ready to move on and sign his replacement.
The dialogue between Milan and the agents of Porto playmaker Otavio have been going on for some time. The attacking midfielder – who can also be used as a right winger – could be a reinforcement for the summer on a free transfer, as his current contract is set to expire in June.
He has 3 goals and 4 assists in 14 league appearances in Portugal, and the 26-year-old would be the replacement for Diaz if he was not bought (very likely) or his loan was not renewed.
