Manchester City starlet Brahim Diaz to join Real Madrid

Manchester City starlet Brahim Diaz is reportedly on the verge of joining Real Madrid.

According to BBC Sport, City have accepted Madrid’s offer of £15.5m (€17.3m) for Brahim, which could rise to £21m (€23.4m).

Furthermore, Marca claims the 19-year-old will be unveiled by Los Blancos next week, when he is expected to parade the No 21 shirt.

Primarily an attacking midfielder but capable of also playing out wide, his arrival underlines Madrid’s commitment to signing young talent.

Brahim joined City from Malaga in 2013, when he was just 14, and was promoted to their first team by Pep Guardiola three years later.

He went on to make 15 appearances for the English champions, but just four have come this season and his contract was due to expire in the summer.

Brahim has already faced Madrid in his short career, scoring against them in a 4-1 International Champions Cup win two summers ago.
