The £33m Real Madrid star’s agent says he wants to leave, Leeds were keen to do so in January

Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz’s agent was quoted from TuttoMercatoWeb saying his client wants to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer – just months after Marcelo Bielsa urged Leeds to sign him.

Diaz, 28, managed just 11 games under Carlo Ancelotti in 2021-22, scoring one goal. Those 11 games resulted in a measly 397 minutes of football for the Spanish-born forward.

The forward started at Madrid but joined Lyon in 2017 – after just 10 caps for Madrid’s senior team. He played in France and scored 21 goals in 2017/18. A season later, he returned to Madrid for £33m (heaven).

But over the next four years he only played 62 times. Diaz is now keen to join a team where he gets regular playing time. Back in January, reports from 90Min claimed Bielsa had urged Leeds to sign the striker.

Diaz stayed at Madrid but is about to enter the final 12 months of his contract with Ancelotti’s side. His agent was quoted by TMW that he wants to leave the club if the goal suits him.

“The player’s intention is to leave as long as there is an option that satisfies him. We’re trying to find a team that he likes. He still has a contract. We’ll see how it ends because now I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Diaz wants to leave Madrid: Bielsa urged Leeds to sign him in January

It makes sense even after Bielsa’s era. Leeds need a striker to act as cover and competition for Patrick Bamford as the England international is injured at Elland Road for most of the 2021-22 season.

Joe Gelhardt was excellent. The dilemma for Leeds is they need another body at the top but bringing in a striker could hamper his progress. However, a striker who can also play on the flank would be ideal. Diaz is perfect.
