Manchester return? Real Madrid dismiss anti-Man Utd clause claim for Diaz

'I had three options after deciding to leave Manchester City.

Brahim is to undergo a medical on Monday before being officially presented as a Real Madrid player at the Santiago Bernabeu.

A clause in the deal means that Manchester City will receive 15 per cent of any future transfer fee, however, that will rise to 40 per cent if the buying club is Manchester United.

Manchester City starlet Brahim Diaz has all but moved to Real Madrid in a deal worth around £15.5million up front, but it is a particular clause in his contract that has fans talking.

Back in the noughties, Real Madrid was a club that issued its intent to rival clubs across Europe by acquiring services of world's best players for world-record money.

The 19-year-old becomes Madrid's first signing of the window, with Santiago Solari in desperate need of reinforcements after watching his side crash to a shock 2-0 defeat to Real Sociedad in their first game of 2019. "I didn't want to go anywhere else".

"I have arrived at a club that I dreamed of playing for as a child", an emotional Diaz said.

Brahim has made just four appearances for City this season - three in the Carabao Cup and one in the Community Shield - and hasn't been named on the bench for a Premier League fixture. I will give everything from the first day'.

Diaz has been at City since joining from home-town club Malaga at the age of 14 but has seen first-team opportunities limited at the Etihad, with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez ahead of him in the pecking order. "He chose it above others and that energy will help (him)", Perez said.
