Brahim Diaz signs new Real Madrid contract after AC Milan loan.
Real Madrid have made the announcement of Brahim Diaz signed a new four-year contract upon his return to the club.
Initially paying £15.5 million to sign Diaz from Manchester City in January 2019, Los Blancos waited as the young Spanish player struggled to make an impact before sending him on a one-year loan to AC Milan in the summer of 2020.
Later, Diaz would sign a new two-year loan agreement and return to Milan, where he established himself as a crucial member of the team that won the Serie A title in 2021–2022. He has since returned to Spain to resume playing for Real Madrid’s first team.
After his comeback, Diaz signed a new contract that will keep him with Los Blancos through the summer of 2027. On Tuesday, June 13, the 23-year-old will once again be introduced to the media.
During his first 18 months on the books, Diaz made 21 appearances for Real Madrid, contributing with two goals and three assists while primarily sitting on the bench or being left off the squad.
Diaz had the chance to revive his career thanks to his loan to Milan, and he leaves Italy as the Serie A champion after making no less than 124 appearances for the Rossoneri.
The most fruitful year of Diaz’s senior career was 2022–2023. The Spaniard scored six goals and provided seven assists while playing primarily as an attacking midfielder for Milan, with sporadic appearances on the left wing.
The hole caused by the exits of Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio, and Mariano Diaz will be somewhat filled by Diaz’s return to Real Madrid.
