Real Madrid has found a ready-made in-house replacement for Marco Asensio after his expected exit from the Santiago Bernabeu: Brahim Diaz. This Malaga native, who polished his abilities during a loan stint at Milan, is ready to replace Asensio in the starting lineup.
Since Diaz has spent the last two years away on loan from the Bernabeu, Diario AS claims that Madrid views the transfer as if it were a fresh signing. The impending departure of Asensio has been a major focus for Madrid’s strategists. The team has mapped out a plan for his successor and has been keeping a close eye on Diaz’s progress.
The tremendous talent came close to reaching the Champions League final during his time at Milan, an accomplishment that will help Real Madrid in the long run. Diaz has, in essence, established his worth. As a result of his 122 Calcio appearances, he has established himself as a viable contender to strengthen Madrid’s right side. Currently, the position is held by Rodrygo, a promising starter.
No matter how many times Milan tries to keep Diaz permanently, the club is ready for his return. Diaz’s contract will be extended and reworked financially to reflect his likely new role with the club. Reportedly, Diaz has been seeing this transfer as both a formidable challenge and a springboard for his career.

Real Madrid Reveals Sensational Replacement: Club’s Surprising Pick to Fill Marco Asensio’s Shoes Leaves Fans Speechless!
Take Kubo, another fascinating prospect who may fill the void created by Asensio, is mentioned in AS’s article. Despite his history with the white jersey, the Japanese midfielder has pledged his allegiance to Real Sociedad and is now valued at €60 million, the amount of his release clause.
Madrid had given up a buyback option and profit margin in exchange for €6M when they sold Kubo, leaving just a right of first refusal and a profit margin. This makes the likelihood of his return murky, since Madrid seems to have very specific spending goals for the summer.
They’re putting a lot of effort into signing Jude Bellingham and a top-tier striker. With all the money that would need to be sorted out, getting Kubo back may not be the club’s first priority. With Diaz as a potential replacement, Real Madrid can absorb the loss of Asensio without paying any further expenses.
