Madrid re-signs for­ward Mar­i­ano Diaz from Lyon

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Real Madrid says it has re-signed for­ward Mar­i­ano Diaz af­ter he played a sea­son with Lyon in France. The 25-year-old Diaz, who used to play for Madrid's youth squads and joined the se­nior team in 2016-17, re­turns on a five-year con­tract.

He played 45 games with Lyon last sea­son, scor­ing 21 goals.

Diaz had been linked to a move to Sevilla but Madrid had the op­tion of se­cur­ing his trans­fer back from Lyon.

Fi­nan­cial de­tails of the deal were not im­me­di­ately re­leased.

Madrid, a three-time de­fend­ing Euro­pean cham­pion, has made few sign­ings since los­ing Cris­tiano Ron­aldo to Ju­ven­tus in the off­sea­son.
