In a recent report, AS has revealed that Real Madrid are keeping tabs on Bayer 04 Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby. It is understood that Los Blancos scouts were left impressed by the French wide player’s eye-catching form in the Bundesliga this season and could make a move for him during the summer transfer window (via AS).
Diaby’s Impressive Form For Leverkusen This Season
The Paris-born talent is having an outstanding campaign at the BayArena after establishing himself as a key member of Peter Bosz’s attack. Diaby has banged in nine goals and secured 12 assists in 35 appearances for the German club this term across various competitions.
The 21-year-old has been remarkably consistent with his contributions in the final third as he is averaging 1.9 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.7 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga and the UEFA Europa League this season. He has even been excellent when linking up play with his teammates in the opposition half, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 84.9% in both those competitions (stats via whoscored).
The way Diaby has been playing this season, it is no surprise that a top club like Real Madrid are keeping a keen eye on his progress at Leverkusen. Still, the French whizkid is quite raw and would need time to hone his skills before he is ready to feature at the highest level week in week out.
What Will The French Sensation Bring To The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium?
Diaby has electric pace and can leave his marker to bite the dust when he decides to turn on the afterburners out on the wide areas. He can use his quickness and agility to cause all kinds of problems for the opposition defenders and has added plenty of goals and assists to his game this season.
The French wonderkid can be a delight to watch when he is dribbling at full speed. However, he is yet to prove his value outside Germany, so the jury is still out on whether he can maintain his high standards in La Liga where he will have to play against some of the best defenders in world football.
Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane needs to inject some fresh blood into his ageing squad, so recruiting Diaby will be a massive coup for him this summer. The French speedster has all the attributes needed to be a future star at the Spanish capital and would add plenty of pace and dynamism to Real Madrid’s attack. Furthermore, Diaby would serve as a decent replacement for Eden Hazard, who has endured a difficult and injury-prone spell at the Bernabeu.
