AS via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are evaluating Brahim Diaz who is on loan from Real Madrid for the season. The 21 year old has had ups and downs this season as he has been decisive in some games especially early on but has struggled and been overpowered in a lot of games too. The idea is to work on an extension for the midfielder as Milan and Madrid did not agree a buy out nor any fees at the start of the season. He is held in regard regard by Madrid and hence he is valued very high. Diaz would also need to decide if he has better chances to progress in Italy or in Spain.

Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanLive.it are reporting that Maldini and Massara will likely attempt to extend his loan for another year and potentially include a buy out clause. The player seems to be enjoying his time in Italy where he has played 31 games scoring 5 goals and providing 3 assists in all competitions.
