Report: Luis Diaz desperate to one day play for Real Madrid
The entourage of Luis Diaz have told Defensa Central that the Liverpool star is desperate to follow in the footsteps of James Rodriguez and play for Real Madrid.
Diaz has been an outstanding signing for the Reds. He arrived during the most recent January transfer window as it appeared that he may be bound for Tottenham.
He has scored 10 goals and provided eight assists in 38 games for Jurgen Klopp’s men. And when the chips have been down for Liverpool, it has often been Diaz who has shone.
Diaz desperate to play for Real Madrid
Diaz recently opened up to Colombian outlet SoHo on his desire to play in Spain at some stage in his career (via Mirror). He did insist that his focus however, remains on achieving success at Liverpool.
But it would seem that he would love the chance to head to the Bernabeu at some point. According to Defensa Central, his entourage has claimed that he is crazy about the idea of representing Real Madrid.
The move would see Diaz emulate countryman James. Of course, the 31-year-old moved to the Spanish capital after stealing the show at the 2014 World Cup with Colombia.
His time with Real was hardly an overwhelming success. He spent two years on loan with Bayern Munich. And it was a move to Merseyside which brought the curtain down on his time with Los Blancos, as he joined Everton.
It is hardly a surprise to see reports suggest that Diaz would love to play for Real. He has recently alluded to the fact that he dreamt of playing in Spain. And realistically, that is likely to only mean one of two things.
But Diaz will be aware that there is little point thinking about playing for Real anytime soon. Instead, he needs to concentrate on continuing to impress for Liverpool.
From there, who knows what may happen?
