AC Milan’s fine run of form post-lockdown as well as their rich history convinced Brahim Diaz to make up his mind to join the club.

Brahim Diaz’s recruitment was one of the several highlights of the summer transfer window for AC Milan.

The 21-year old winger arrived at San Siro in November on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid.

He struggled to convince his previous employers of his worth but has already made a sizeable impact in his new team, having scored three times in his first five matches in Italy.

“It’s true that I had other offers, but Milan are a large club and was on a winning streak after the quarantine, they reached Europe,” Brahim insisted in an interview with Spanish news agency Efe.

“In the end, they’re Milan. I didn’t have to think about it because it’s a very big club.”

Milan, who currently sit second in the Serie A table level on points with leaders Atalanta, are expected to finish within a top-four spot this season.

“We need to continue to work,” the Spain Under-21 international said on his side’s ambition to qualify for the Champions League.

‘We have a young group with some experienced players who help us, we can do it.”
