Brahim Diaz returns to Real Madrid after three-year loan at AC Milan

Midfielder Brahim Diaz has returned to La Liga side Real Madrid following his three-year loan spell at AC Milan.

Although his ownership was never officially transferred, he has been welcomed back as if he were a brand new signing.

During his time at Milan, the 23-year-old featured in 124 matches, scoring 18 goals and providing 15 assists.

This season, Brahim emerged as a regular starter at San Siro and played a vital role in their journey to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Yesterday, he was formally presented as a Real Madrid player once again, donning the number 21 jersey.

In his press conference, Brahim expressed his admiration for the club, referring to it as the best in the world.

"I have been privileged. I learned a lot. In each one [league] it was different. I have matured a lot," said Brahim Diaz.

"The difference in the three leagues is the ball. The Premier League is a little more physical, La Liga much more technical and in Italy everything is more tactical.

"It has been very good for me to come back to learn and I come back with a lot of desire."

He also took the opportunity to share his insights on the significant differences between the three leagues he has experienced, including the Premier League during his time with Manchester City.
