Real Madrid attacker Brahim Diaz confirmed his loan move to AC Milan this Friday. Brahim will have the opportunity to play consistently for one of the biggest clubs in Italy and the young attacker talked to Milan’s official TV channel about the move and his first feelings in the club.

“I’ve been coached by the likes of Pep Guardiola and Zidane and I know that both of them played in Italy. Zidane was very good to me at Real Madrid and spoke highly of Italy and the Serie A, he loves the city of Milan,” explained Brahim.

The young talent also talked about his new club.

“My first impression as a Milan player is a very good one, you can tell how big this club is in Italy. It’s a privilege being able to play for this great club with such an amazing history behind, it’s an honor to be in this great team,” he said.

Brahim was also asked about Theo Hernandez, who also played for Madrid and completed brilliant performances for Milan last season.

“I haven’t had the chance to talk with Theo yet but I’m sure that he will welcome me because he’s been a Real Madrid player and he knows what that means. Now he also knows what the adaptation process looks like and I think it will be easy for me because the group of players here is amazing,” concluded Brahim.

Real Madrid’s scouts and coaching staff will surely be paying close attention to Brahim’s performances in the Serie A, given that almost everyone in the club believes that he has the potential to play for Madrid on a consistent basis. It will now be up to Brahim to prove his quality in a big club like Milan.

Good luck, and (maybe) see you again.
