Real Madrid sign Man City midfielder Brahim Diaz


Spanish teenager Brahim Diaz has signed for Real Madrid from Manchester City on a six-and-a-half-year contract.

The 19-year-old midfielder joined City from Malaga aged 14 in 2013 and made 15 first-team appearances, but has played only four times this season.

The Spain Under-21 international’s most recent outing came in the Carabao Cup quarter-final at Leicester last month.

Real, who lost 2-0 at home to Real Sociedad on Sunday and are fifth in La Liga, are understood to have paid £15m.

Diaz, who will have a medical on Monday and be presented to the media at the Bernabeu, has signed a contract until June 2025.

The deal, which includes a further £6.5m in add-ons, also features a 15% sell-on fee but it is understood that figure would rise to 40% should Real sell him to Manchester United.

Diaz came to prominence during the 2017 Uefa Under-17 Championships in Azerbaijan when he scored three times for Spain, who finished runners-up to Portugal after beating England in the quarter-finals.
