Report: Milan and Real Madrid discussing ‘final details’ of playmaker deal through intermediary

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are closing in on making their first senior signing of the summer as they are in the final stages of talks over Brahim Diaz, it is claimed.

Basically all major outlets are reporting how Brahim is a target for the Milan management and that conversations have been held with Real Madrid over the possibility of signing the 21-year-old.

Relations between the Rossoneri and Real Madrid are very good after the Theo Hernandez deal, while Stefano Pioli has apparently recognised the need for a creative midfielder.

According to transfer source Nicolo Schira, Brahim Diaz is getting closer and closer to joining Milan from Real Madrid on loan with option to buy.

The ‘final details’ are being completed, he adds, and the deal will be carried out by the intermediary Edoardo Crnjar.

Brahim has had just 599 minutes worth of game time since his arrival from Manchester City, and is understood to be on the lookout for fresh opportunities.
