Brahim Diaz joins Milan for the 2020-21 season on loan from Real Madrid, Serie A club has reported.
The 21-year-old forward signed in January 2019 for Madrid but has been struggling for first-team football since making a €15million move from Manchester City.
In LaLiga last term, Diaz appeared just six times, with none of those appearances as a starter, and was closely linked with a move.
Despite seemingly not being part of Zinedine Zidane’s plans, Diaz has not secured a permanent move, and reports indicate Milan do not have a purchase option in the deal.
A Milan statement read: “Milan is delighted to announce the signing of the Spanish footballer Brahim Diaz from Real Madrid on loan until June 30, 2021.”
Diaz, a technically talented and skilful attacker, joined City in 2015, after showing promise in the youth ranks of Malaga.
While he was considered one of the best prospects for City along with Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden, Diaz followed the former in quitting the club in search of more opportunities.
While that wasn’t happening in Madrid, he’ll be able to see more action in San Siro, with Milan aiming to improve in 2019-20 on their sixth place finish.
