Madrid confirm Brahim Diaz transfer from Man City

MADRID (AFP) – Real Madrid have signed Brahim Diaz from Manchester City, the European champions confirmed on Sunday night.

Diaz, a 19-year-old winger, has agreed a contract for six and a half years with Real and will undergo a medical, before being officially unveiled at the Santiago Bernabeu.

A Real Madrid statement read, “Real Madrid and Manchester City have agreed to the transfer of the player Brahim Diaz, who will be linked to the club for the remainder of the season and the next six, until June 30, 2025.”

Diaz’s deal at Manchester City was set to expire in June. Madrid have reportedly agreed to pay 17 million euros up front, with a further seven million euros due depending on performance.

He moved to the Premier League from Malaga in 2013 but has struggled to establish himself in City’s first team.

He will join a talented group of young Spanish players at Madrid, which already includes Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos, Marcos Llorente, Alvaro Odriozola and Sergio Reguilon.
