Brahim Diaz says he can handle Real Madrid pressure

Brahim Diaz says he can handle pressure of being a Real Madrid player.

The 19-year-old former Manchester City midfielder had his official presentation on Monday and was able to train with his new teammates for the first time on Tuesday morning, though he was clearly still in a state of excitement about the move.

"Real Madrid are the best club in the world and you have to perform at the highest level every week," he said to Madrid's official television channel.

"Each week you must try to score goals and give assists and, above all, contribute to the team union that is what leads you to winning titles at the end.

"There are great players and world stars here.

"I've come from a big club, but this is another step forward."

Brahim provided an insight into where he believes he plays best, too.

"[I'm comfortable] in all attacking positions," he added.

"I really like to play behind the striker because I'm a link-up player.

"I like the attacking side of the game and being able to play one-twos, arriving from midfield and score goals.

"Goals and assists are very important for a club like Real Madrid.
