After Real Madrid’s latest defeat against Real Sociedad this Sunday, the club decided to make Brahim Diaz’s transfer official to the public.

We’ve been talking to all of you about Brahim Diaz’s imminent transfer from Manchester City to Real Madrid, the reports suggested that the player would be announced any time soon but recent events pushed the date a little bit.

As we all know from earlier on Sunday, Los Blancos received another shocking defeat against Real Sociedad and effectively renounced to any chances they still had to keep fighting for La Liga this season.

Naturally, the announcement of Brahim Diaz’s arrival was something that could help many of the wounded fans who are very upset with the latest result in the competition.

As of right now, Los Blancos have already moved 10 clean points away from the very top after Barcelona defeated Getafe later during the day.

Brahim’s arrival is meant to be one of the very few beacons of light that the club has to offer during these dark times, where Los Blancos haven’t been able to live up to the standards expected from them and they leave many doubts for the upcoming months in which they have to play three different competitions.

After so much backlash from the fans and several headlines that did the club no favors, Real Madrid decided to finally make the announcement in order to try and cool down all the negative energy surrounding the current climate in the institution.

It was a few hours after the Merengues lost their match against Real Sociedad, when they posted a tweet and also made the following announcement through their official website.

“Both Real Madrid and Manchester City have agreed on the transfer of player Brahim Diaz, who is bound to the club for the rest of the current season and for the six upcoming years until June of the year 2025.”

“After the medical tests that will take place tomorrow Monday, January 7, the player will be presented at 13:30 at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium’s honor box.”

“After this, Brahim will step on the Santiago Bernabeu’s pitch for the very first time whilst wearing the Real Madrid C.F. jersey and he will tend to all the members of the media at a press conference,” it concluded.

Details of Brahim Diaz’s transfer

As it was already disclosed from several media outlets, Brahim comes to Real Madrid for the next six seasons plus the rest of the remaining one.

The Spanish player wasn’t able to get convinced by Pep Guardiola and Manchester City to remain at the club, mainly due to the fact that the Catalan manager has decided to give more opportunities to local players such as Phil Foden with the Citizens.

Brahim’s agent and family didn’t consider that Manchester City valued the player highly enough, which is why they decided to accept a €15 million offer from Los Blancos plus €5 million in objectives that should be achieved in the following years.

The young talent is expected to arrive in Madrid during the next few hours with all his family, he is scheduled to be presented on Monday as the announcement clearly read, and the fans have already been summoned for his presentation.

This latest arrival to Los Blancos confirms that president Florentino Perez has remained true to his policy of signing promising talents instead of bonified stars, a tradition that broke the mold after Perez became notorious for signing the most expensive players in football history for many decades.
