Brahim Diaz is starting to make a name for himself at Manchester City. The youngster has scored two goals for the Sky Blues in 15 appearances for the senior team. His performances on the pitch have attracted interest from clubs across Europe, including Real Madrid. The 19-year-old is set to sign for the Spanish giants in January for a fee of €15 million. The midfielder is looking to start a new chapter in his career with a move to the Los Blancos.

Since Cristiano Ronaldo‘s departure, Real Madrid have been investing in youngsters that can help the team for years to come. Many young players arrived at the club and Florentino Perez is now looking to secure the signing of another prodigy. Manchester City’s Brahim Diaz has been identified as a transfer target. The 13-time Champions League winners are going to put faith in the former Malaga man and are looking to turn Diaz into an elite footballer.

Putting faith in the Spaniard is a risk, though it could be rewarding. It is strange that the 33-time La Liga winners are investing in a player who only appeared five times in the Premier League. Diaz certainly has great potential but he might not be ready to join the reigning champions of Europe. Santiago Solari needs to give the player time on the field, or else his development will break down. Real Madrid have Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric and many more stars in the midfield. It will be difficult for the coach to play Diaz in the place of the current players making up the current midfield.

Brahim Diaz could become a great player. If he is given enough playing time, he could learn from the stars in Madrid. The player himself is happy to return to his home country, where he can make history and leave an impact in the Spanish capital.
