Real Madrid announce deal for Manchester City's Brahim Diaz

Brahim Diaz leaves Man City for Real Madrid in deal worth £22m with added clause designed to keep him away from Man Utd

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has ruled out the possibility of midfielder, Phil Foden leaving the club this January transfer window.

Brahim Diaz has a clause in his contract that means Manchester City will receive more money if Real Madrid sell him to their rivals Manchester United, sources have told ESPN FC.

Diaz was beaming with pride as he was unveiled as a Real Madrid player following his £22m move from Manchester City.

Diaz, who will play under the number 21 jersey at Real Madrid, will join a talented group of young Spanish players at the club, which already includes Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos, Marcos Llorente, Alvaro Odriozola and Sergio Reguilon.

Consequently, the 19-year-old is set to depart for the Spanish capital imminently, with just six months remaining on his current deal at the Eithad Stadium. It was impossible to go anywhere else.

On Diaz, he said: "We welcome our new player Brahim Díaz, a player with quality, magic and a huge personality who dreams of being a successful footballer wearing this shirt and this badge".

"I promise to give 100 percent from the first day".

The clause further reflects the reluctance of the Premier League champions to part ways with one of their brightest young stars, with City having apparently failed in their bid to tie Diaz to a new contract. Though the Spaniard's first team appearances came sporadically for the defending Premier League champions, he made his mark every time he stepped onto the pitch.

Manchester City have already suffered with the sale of youngster Jadon Sancho to Borussia Dortmund, where the Englishman has thrived, with other clubs keen to sign him up.
