Manchester City's Brahim Diaz, 19, is on the verge of completing a move to Real Madrid which could be worth up to £22m.

City are reluctant to lose the 19-year-old but understand why the Spaniard is attracted to Real, together with his view that the competition offered by Riyad Mahrez, Leroy Sané and Raheem Sterling means playing regular football at City is hard.

Spanish giants Real Madrid have unveiled their first January signing, who received the No. 21 shirt, on Monday. A woman told the paper that the unidentified...

Brahim, who joined City as a 16-year-old from Malaga, has turned down an improved contract offer at City.

"I'm arriving at the club I dreamed of playing as a boy. When I chose to leave City I had just three options - 1 play for Real Madrid, 2 play for Real Madrid, 3 play for Real Madrid".

"We will continue to build a Real Madrid ready to thrill Real Madrid fan in the present and in the future".

The deal is part of Madrid president Florentino Perez's stated policy of snapping up the best emerging Spanish talent - with Brahim joining Marco Asensio, Jesus Vallejo, Dani Ceballos and Alvaro Odriozola in the Blancos squad. 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.

Díaz leaves City having made 15 first-team appearances for the reigning Premier League champions and scoring twice since making his debut against Swansea in the EFL Cup back in September 2016. "He chose it above others and that energy will help".
