After impressing in the pre-season campaign, especially against Real Madrid, Manchester City’s Brahim Diaz looks to have caught the eye of Los Blancos.
The 18-year-old Malaga native joined Manchester City in 2015 and is still under contract till 2019.
Having made his senior debut last season in the League Cup, Diaz is being touted as an upcoming starlet with great potential. Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane seems to share the same view according to OK Diario.
Real Madrid have signed some of the most talented young players in the world with Marco Asensio already showing signs of becoming a world class player. The 11-time European champions seem determined to build a squad for the future.
While the future looks bright for Brahim Diaz who could soon break into the Man City squad, it is a possibility that the Spaniard would be open to a move back home. Whether or not Manchester City can hold off interest from the European powerhouses and convince their teenage sensation to stay in Manchester is yet to be seen.
