How Manchester City inserted a clause to prevent Manchester United from signing quality player

Former Manchester City wonderkid Brahim Diaz, joined Real Madrid for £15.5m, on a long-term contract running until 2025, but there’s a clause against Manchester United that was inserted into the deal.

Pep Guardiola was keen to keep Diaz, but he was eventually sold in the summer of 2019, as he was keen on first team football.

To seal the deal, Manchester City insisted on a clause that would prevent Real Madrid from selling Brahim Diaz to Manchester United.

City sold Diaz for £15.5m in 2019, and Marca reports that should Madrid decide to let Diaz move to Manchester United in the future, they would have to pay City 40% of any transfer fee.

Manchester City rate Diaz highly, and they won’t want to see the whizkid play for their bitter rivals.
