Teenager vows to give all after 'dream' Real Madrid move

After Manchester City failed to tie him down to a new contract, Real Madrid jumped on the opportunity and signed the midfielder in January 2019 for £15.5 million.

It was suggested City had demanded a clause stating that if Diaz was sold to United, Real would pay 40 per cent of the fee to the Blues.

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

Monday's news agenda in Spain was also driven by footage that showed Gareth Bale leaving the Santiago Bernabeu with 12 minutes to go of the Real Sociedad game.

Madrid president Florentino Perez unveiled Brahim at a special event today and the youngster said he never had any doubt which club he wanted to join after quitting the Etihad.

Which other players do you think Real must buy this month? Though the Spaniard's first team appearances came sporadically for the defending Premier League champions, he made his mark every time he stepped onto the pitch. The England under-21 global has yet to start a Premier League game but sources say he is viewed as the successor to David Silva with Pep Guardiola determined to make him a first-team regular.
