Agent: ‘Brahim Diaz looks for leading role at Milan’ | Football Italia

  Agent Pedro Gonzalez seems sure Brahim Diaz can claim a starting position at Milan and believes the 21-year-old will ‘quickly adapt to his new reality’.

  Diaz moved from Malaga to Manchester City in January 2014, but returned to Spain in 2019, but has struggled to convince Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.

  The youngster will move on loan for 2020-21 and agent Gonzalez reveals Diaz chose to move to Milan, hoping to find first-team football and ‘bring out his full potential’.

  “Brahim returned to Spain in January 2019, but in Madrid they didn’t give him the required space and above all the confidence he needed,” Gonzalez told Tuttomercatoweb.

  “He’s a young player and he needs to play continuously to bring out his full potential.”

  Gonzalez thinks Milan provide a great opportunity for the former Manchester City youngster.

  “Absolutely, yes. I’m convinced of the Rossoneri choice,” he added. “Brahim has already lived abroad and will therefore adapt quickly to his new reality.

  “His future teammate Samu Castillejo, another great player I brought to Malaga, will help him. I say this with great pride.”

  And despite his young age, Gonzalez believes Diaz can fight for a place in coach Stefano Pioli’s starting line-up.

  “In my opinion, yes. If Brahim Diaz has chosen Milan, it means he already knows he can help the team


by carving out a leading role.

  “I have no doubts about this. As soon as he has finished his growth path, we will talk about an absolute champion and not a promising youngster anymore.”
