Real Madrid do the buy-back thing better than most. Allows the player to feel more settled at new club than a loan, and pre-agreed fee keeps cost of re-signing down if they thrive. Mariano Diaz the perfect example

– 18 Ligue 1 goals (> than Mbappé)
– 43min per G/A at Madrid
– 25 goals for Castilla as a supersub (most for a Castilla player in 1 season)
You can critize him for a lot of things, but he is damn good at scoring goals, and that’s what we need right now.
