Real Madrid do not have much depth at the moment, especially due to their injury problems, as several key players remain out. So, it would not be ideal for the club to see any more of their current squad depart. At the same time though, if a fantastic offer does arrive on their table, one would expect Los Blancos to consider it.

One player whose role in the team has grown in recent weeks is Brahim Diaz. The Spaniard returned in the summer after spending three seasons out on loan at AC Milan.

He was barely playing at the start of the season but as the injuries have mounted up, he has automatically climbed up the pecking order. And he has justified his selection with some solid performances as well. According to stats from Transfermarkt, Brahim has scored 4 goals and provided 2 assists in 17 appearances and 665 minutes of football.

Brahim seems to be drawing the attention of a lot of clubs right now. Newcastle United have been heavily linked with him. But as reported by Real Madrid Exclusivo, teams such as Aston Villa, West Ham United and AC Milan are also interested.

Brahim is an excellent player without a doubt but it is unclear how much playing time he will get once all the regular starters are back available. One would expect him to return to the bench at that point and perhaps get the role of an impact substitute.

On the other hand, he could be a regular starter for teams like West Ham United, Aston Villa and Newcastle United and was one for AC Milan while on loan there. So, it might be an interesting choice for the player as well.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Brahim. It could take a transfer fee around €60 million to convince Real Madrid to part ways with him.
