Brahim Diaz is in the middle of his second year at Milan, a journey he embarked upon in the summer of 2021, and it is safe to say, Brahim has made himself extremely valuable to Stefano Pioli.
However with his loan deal expiring in June, Milan are exploring opportunities to keep him permanently. This being said the previously agreed fee of €22 million, is now deemed to be too much by Milan due to their investments in players like Yacine Adli and Charles De Ketelaere, as Daniele Longo reports on CalcioMercato.
As reported earlier in the window, talks are expected to be scheduled soon regarding the transfer of former Manchester City youth product.
It’s been added that, it is now the aim of Paolo Maldini to reduce this figure to a more reasonable fee, which would allow Milan to retain Brahim on a permanent basis.
Brahim has made sixteen appearances in the league for Milan this season scoring four and assisting two which is a respectable return, and therefore should Milan not pay up, Carlo Ancelotti would presumably relish the opportunity to have a player like Brahim in his squad.
Brahim however is a key player for Pioli and therefore the Milan boss will be hopeful that this is not the end of their journey together.
