- Spanish giants set to sign Brahim Diaz from Manchester City
- The 19-year-old had refused to join La Liga side Girona this summer
- The attacking midfielder has only played one match for City this season
English champions Manchester City are battling to keep youngster Brahim Diaz with Real Madrid ready to snap the youngster, according to reports.
The 19-year-old is highly-rated and with just a year left on his current deal at the Etihad, a host of clubs are on red alert.
According to Evening Standard, the Spaniard is regarded as one of the hottest teenagers and could return home to join the Bernabeu.
Diaz has been earmarked as a star of the future and is destined to make a breakthrough into Pep Guardiola’s first-team set up.
He made ten appearances as City won the Premier League last season, and has played just once this term so far in the Community Shield win over Chelsea.
Diaz refused a move to City-owned La Liga side Girona after telling Guardiola he wanted to fight for a place with the Premier League champions.
But the attacking midfielder's chances could be limited this season with the likes of Bernardo Silva, Ilkay Gudogan and Phil Foden who are all struggling for regular game time.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Premier League champions Manchester City and Chelsea are reportedly in the race to sign 16-year-old Nigerian youngster George Bello who currently plays for Atlanta United.
After making his senior debut for Atlanta United last weekend, George Bello is said to be one of the brightest talents to come through the MLS.
