Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is quite pleased with the progress of loanee Brahim Diaz at AC Milan.
It didn’t take long for Brahim Diaz to make the fans forget Hakan Calhanoglu. Stefano Pioli bet on the AC Milan new number ten to replace the Turkish attacking midfielder and not bring in another player.
The Spanish talent is slowly establishing himself as a key figure for AC Milan and thinking about his future to date seems premature. The 22-year-old arrived on a two-year loan, until June 2023, and in the current state of affairs his return to Real Madrid a possibility.
It is clear that Brahim Diaz will play a decisive role in deciding his future. In the past, Diaz has never hidden that he cheers for Real Madrid, the club he joined in 2019 for 17 million euros from Manchester City. AC Milan do not have an option to make the transfer permanent at the end of his loan.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are not losing sight of him and are happy with his growth in Italy. “Here he had no space due to high competition. Diaz is an important player for us and we are happy that he is doing well. For his growth it was important for him to play regularly. He did not become a Rossoneri player by chance but because we know the structure of the club. I hope that Milan will remain at the top after returning there“, said Carlo Ancelotti.
Ancelotti discussed the Scudetto fight this season. “I see a very balanced Serie A. Juventus have some problems and have lost certainties but I am sure they will bounce back and will be among the candidates to win at the end. Inter can also compete for the Scudetto, they have maintained the structure of last year despite changing coach and some protagonists“.
