Promoted Girona have asked Manchester City about taking Brahim Diaz on-loan.
The former Malaga junior is rated highly at City - and across Europe - and Girona hope to add him to their squad for their LaLiga campaign.
AS says, however, Brahim is reluctant to be forced into a decision about next season at this stage in the summer.
Malaga are also in contact with City about a similar deal.
But for now, Brahim expects to start preseason with City before making a decision.
