AC Milan midfielder Brahim Diaz admits he’s not thinking about parent club Real Madrid.
Los Blancos signed the former Malaga youth player from Manchester City in 2019, but he found game time hard to come by at the Bernabeu. He has been making a name for himself in Italy since arriving in 2020 and made his Spain debut earlier this year.
“I’m focused on Milan, which are a big club and there’s not much more to say,” Brahim told Radio MARCA.
“I wish [Real Madrid] all the best but I’m here now.”
Despite his lacking of playing time under Zinedine Zidane, the 22-year-old had nothing but positive words for the former Real Madrid head coach.
“Zidane is a legend as a player and as coach he’s been very good too,” said Brahim.
“The affection is mutual, we get on very well and I know he likes my game. I worked hard for those minutes, I was very happy with him and he with me too.”
