Brahim Diaz’s return to Milan is reportedly a ‘done deal’, while Olivier Giroud remains the Rossoneri’s priority to strengthen their attack.
According to Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan and Real Madrid have reached an agreement over the return of Brahim Diaz to the Stadio San Siro.
The Spaniard joined the Rossoneri on a dry loan deal last summer and will return to the club on loan with an option to buy.
According to the report, the Serie A side will pay €2m or €3m for the player’s loan and will have an option to buy in the region of €22m.
Real Madrid have a clause to re-sign the player for €27m.

Meantime the Rossoneri are still on the lookout for a new centre-forward and Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud is the No.1 target for the Serie A giants.
The France international extended with the Champions League winners, but he is open to joining the Rossoneri who want to sign him for free.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, a move to Milan is a priority for the Chelsea forward.
Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic is Milan’s alternative to Giroud and so is Alvaro Odrizola in case Manchester United refuse to sell Diogo Dalot on loan.
The Rossoneri have also set their sights on Groningen’s Gabriel Gudmundsson after that Leeds United have jumped to the front of the queue to sign Junior Firpo from Barcelona.
