Real Madrid are keen to relocate Luka Jovic.
The summer arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt has failed to win over Real coach Zinedine Zidane in preseason.
Gazzetta dello Sport says Milan chief Paolo Maldini is in talks with Real about a deal for Mariano Diaz.
And Real intend to take advantage of negotiations to also offer Jovic in a temporary deal.
Real rate the Serb highly, but Zidane doesn't have a place for him in his plans this season.
