When Zinedine Zidane was again named the new Real Madrid manager, it immediately became clear which players would benefit and which would lose.
The main beneficiaries were Keylor Navas, who has already replaced Thibaut Courtois, Isco and Marcelo.
Marca suggests that Brahim Diaz is a different one, although that can be from the point of view of things that cannot get much worse.
Diaz had a contract in the city of Manchester that ended in the summer and initially it was thought he would join Real Madrid on a free transfer.
However, the player and Madrid wanted to complete the deal in January. Competition was put forward as one of the reasons, but that was not very logical, since he could already have concluded a pre-contractual agreement.
Another reason for an early deal was that Diaz didn't want to spend the rest of the season not getting minutes in Manchester City.
So Madrid paid a fee that could amount to more than € 20 million with add-ons, and the player has not received minutes since January 16.
Marca says that Diaz has been forgotten since the transfer & # 39; and that Zidane now has the task of resolving the situation. He took the 19-year-old in his first squadron over the weekend and it's accepted that the player & # 39; not at his best & # 39; is, due to a lack of football since the turn to Manchester City.
