Real Madrid are in the process of getting some of their best young players even bigger loan moves in 2020-2021.
Martin Odegaard is set to play for Real Sociedad again, Takefusa Kubo is ready to join a Europa League team of his own, and now Brahim Diaz could be headed for a loan move after rarely featuring for Real Madrid in 2019-2020.
Los Blancos knew Brahim would have a tough time getting minutes in a difficult wide forward rotation, which now includes Eden Hazard, a healthy Marco Asensio, and young stars Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes. Brahim is a talented young player in his own right, and he needs playing time to show it.
Real are now set to convince Brahim to finally go out on loan after the Spanish international resisted a move in 2019-2020.
According to a report from ElEspanol.com, Brahim is close to rejoining Manuel Pellegrini at Real Betis after Pellegrini was recently hired to help right the ship for Los Verdiblancos. Betis have also been linked to Kubo, but Brahim is a much more likely acquisition for them, given all their talent in the attacking midfield like Nabil Fekir,
Betis have a lot of talent, but they have underperformed. Pellegrini can help Betis return to being a Europa League-caliber club in La Liga, and Brahim, even for one year, could play a huge role in that. Brahim has serious goal-scoring potential and has been known to love attempting shots from just around the penalty box.
The former Manchester City man could be making his loan move to Betis soon. Playing for a manager who has faith and familiarity in him in Pellegrini would be huge, and Brahim would also benefit from playing regularly around so many talented playmakers, most prominently Fekir.
It looks like this one-year loan should happen soon, and if Brahim blossoms to his potential in 2020-2021 as one of the best forwards in La Liga, he could make his way back to the Santiago Bernabeu to play a role with Real Madrid sooner rather than later. At 21, Brahim needs a loan move like this one.
