Brahim Díaz was presented as a Real Madrid player yesterday after the club decided to pay Manchester City €17m - plus a further €7m in variables - for his services. The 19-year-old midfielder signed a six-and-a-half-year contract and has a buyout clause which is higher than both Isco's and Asensio's (€750m).
Although Real Madrid have snapped up the Spanish youngster, a video has emerged which shows that Diaz hasn't been a Los Blancos supporter all his life. Brahim, in an interview he gave at the age of 12, admitted that his favourite team was FC Barcelona and that his footballing idol was Messi. It's unknown whether the player still feels the same way about Madrid's rivals now. What's clear is the video is unlikely to sit well with the supporters at his new club.
