Brahim Diaz chooses to represent Morocco over Spain

Real Madrid’s attacking midfielder Brahim Diaz has decided to represent Morocco and not Spain on the international stage. Having represented Spain at all youth levels, Diaz has grown tired of waiting for a call-up to La Roja by manager De la Fuente. The Moroccan Federation has been informed of Diaz’s choice, with an official announcement expected soon, as reported by Marca.

Diaz’ football journey began in the youth ranks at Málaga CF before moving through Manchester City’s youth system to the first team, and eventually to Real Madrid. He also has spent two seasons playing at AC Milan on loan. This campaign, Diaz has participated in 32 matches across all competitions, scoring 8 goals and providing 4 assists for Real Madrid in 1,454 minutes of play.

At 24 years old, turning 25 in August, Diaz’s decision marks a significant moment in his career as he embraces his Moroccan heritage on the international stage. He has already agreed to be part of the Moroccan team for the next international break next week.
