Although highly rated since he was a teenager, the Spain U-21 international’s career only really started to take off once he joined the Rossoneri.
After starting his senior career in 2016 with Manchester City, he made just five Premier League appearances before leaving 2019 to link up with Real Madrid.
Diaz spent two seasons with Los Blancos, making just 21 appearances in all competitions for the La Liga giants and scoring two goals.
It is quite evident that the San Siro is where Diaz should be if he wants to take his career to the next level.
He is likely to be reunited with Fikayo Tomori next season, with Romano claiming that the defender is closing in on a permanent move to Milan.
He was a bit-part player at Chelsea who got regular playing time in Italy last season, making 17 league appearances for the Serie A giants.
