Real Madrid are planning to make space in their squad by by selling at least one of Mariano Diaz and Brahim Diaz before the January transfer window.
Los Blancos have already put Mariano Diaz on the market, while they are willing to loan out Brahim Diaz in January. The former hasn’t played a single minute so far this season as Zinedine Zidane has no place for him in his plans.
Brahim, however, is a player who won over the French coach at the end of last season and the only issue is that there is congestion in his position, especially after the emergence of Rodrygo. Real Madrid prompted the 20-year-old to seek playing time elsewhere last summer, but he insisted that he wanted to get an opportunity to feature for Los Blancos.
Neither Mariano nor Brahim were willing to depart in the previous transfer window, but at the club they are confident that both will reconsider their futures before the end of the January tranfser window.
According to Diario AS there is interest in Mariano from Espanyol, Benfica and Leganes, and the trio are likely to submit offers in the coming weeks.
The striker has made just two appearances this season, both of which came in the recent Spanish Supercopa. Brahim hasn’t fared much better, with the midfielder featuring for just 40 minutes across four games, though that hasn’t put off Getafe, who have registered their interest.
Madrid have been boosted by the return from injury of Karim Benzema and Luka Jovic, who have resumed training with the first team this week. Zidane’s side are currently top of the La Liga table after desfeating Sevilla on Saturday.
