Brahim Diaz Set For Real Madrid Move

Brahim Diaz leaves Man City for Real Madrid in deal worth £22m with added clause designed to keep him away from Man Utd

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez tried to take advantage of Brahim Diaz's presentation to put out a calming, positive message to Madrid fans after they lost 2-0 to Real Sociedad on Sunday, slipping 10 points behind Barcelona.

Back in the noughties, Real Madrid was a club that issued its intent to rival clubs across Europe by acquiring services of world's best players for world-record money.

The reigning Premier League champions may not be able to keep Diaz, but they surely don't want him playing against them.

"I was clear last week when I spoke about it".

The breakdown of the fee is believed to be an initial £15.5 million (Dh72m) that could rise to £22 million (Dh103m) in add-ons if certain targets are met.

In recent year, the La Liga heavyweights have adopted a policy of creating a long-term core of Spanish players, which has seen them sign the likes of Dani Ceballos, Alvaro Odriozola and Marco Asensio among others.

City are said to be "delighted" with the financial package for a player who is out of contract in the summer.

The agreement includes a 15 per cent sell-on clause, however English media claims of an anti-United clause have been dismissed, says AS.

"When I decided it was time to leave Manchester City I only considered three options: the first was joining Real Madrid, the second was playing at Real Madrid and the third and last was playing at Real Madrid". It was impossible to go anywhere else.

With the clause in place, if Real Madrid are to sell him on, there is a massive chance that he won't be going directly to United.
