Last September, Milan managed to make the loan of Brahim official from Real Madrid. The 21-year-old footballer came to the Lombard club on loan, without including a purchase option. Under Pioli's orders the player is growing. On the last day he was totally decisive for Milan, assisting Leao in the first goal against Torino and causing the penalty that Kessie converted to 2-0. He is not an undisputed starter yet, but every time he plays things happen in Milan's attack. Maldini holds him in high esteem and that is why, as explained by Corriere dello SportThe Italian club is already working on trying to keep Brahim in its ranks beyond next June, when his loan expires.
Milan sees him as a plan for the future, a player who has adapted well and with enormous growth potential. At Real Madrid he didn't have many options to play and at Milan, little by little, he has them. He has four goals and two assists in 877 minutes. Thus, the Italian newspaper explains that the Lombard managers will initiate contacts with Real Madrid next week. They would already have the approval of the player. The intention is to get the offensive midfielder in property, an ambitious goal. If Real Madrid did not see with good eyes to get rid of him completely, at least Milan hopes to be able to extend the loan for another season.
As explained, the transfer is priced at a minimum of 25 million, a somewhat high starting price for the possibilities of a Milan always burdened by the economic monitoring that UEFA is carrying out. Be that as it may, Maldini wants Brahim to stay at Milan at least until 2022, if buying him becomes impossible, the formula for a new loan is well seen in Italy as well.
