Real Madrid was the only choice, says Brahim Diaz

Brahim Diaz in action for Man City

"When I decided that it was time to leave Manchester City, I only put three options on the table".

But, Real Madrid have prevailed in their bid to secure the services of the 19-year-old, although the transfer fee is yet unknown - different figures have been quoted in different sources.

Real Madrid have announced the signing of Brahim Diaz from Manchester City on a six-and-a-half-year contract.

Diaz joined Los Blancos in a deal initially worth £15.5 million, but which could hit £22 million if all add-ons are triggered.

Don't think I would make very good captain now: Cummins
If Australia can square it at 2-all can that be viewed as a success? "I think it is pretty ridiculous at the moment. They were seen bowling to Kohli at the nets and even clicked pictures with the Indian captain .


"I understand the responsibility of playing with this shirt".

"I never wanted to go anywhere else, it is impossible to go to a better club".

After the medical examination to be held tomorrow, Monday 7 January, the player will be presented at 1:30 pm in the honor box of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. "I promise to give 100 per cent from the first day and to pay back the faith you have put in me". If the player happens to move to their crosstown rivals however, City will gain 40% of any potential sale, which effectively constitutes a barrier to Madrid wanting to sell the player to United. His only three competitive games this season came in the English League Cup, with City manager Pep Guardiola preferring to use Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva out wide.

Brahim joined City as a 14-year-old and was highly regarded by the club's academy staff. The England under-21 worldwide has yet to start a Premier League game but sources say he is viewed as the successor to David Silva with Pep Guardiola determined to make him a first-team regular.
