AC Milan are currently leading Serie A and one of those who has played a role in it is 21-year-old Brahim Díaz. The Spaniard was sent from Real Madrid to AC Milan this summer, and it has proved to be a good deal for all parties. The offensive midfielder has done so well that Paolo Maldini and AC Milan now want to pick him up permanently.
The economic crisis has hit the world hard, and even though Real Madrid values Brahim Díaz highly internally, AC Milan's offer could risk becoming too large and tempting for "Los Blancos". According to Goal, the team from Milan had to be ready to throw an amount between $20 million on the table to be allowed to keep the young Spaniard in Italy for the next many years.
Brahim Díaz has this season played 25 games for AC Milan, scored four goals and made three appearances. Last season, he played 21 games for Real Madrid after switching to Spain from Manchester City.
