PSG and Chelsea linked with Hakimi

Achraf Hakimi spent two seasons on loan in Germany with Borussia Dortmund, where he impressed in a back-five, forming a strong partnership with Jadon Sancho.

Despite a stellar 2019/20 campaign, which saw him score nine and assist 10, however, Real Madrid were unwilling to give Hakimi a chance to impress his team once he returned from loan.

Instead, Los Blancos sent the Moroccan to Inter Milan for a fee that was reported to be around. £ 40 million.

Inter, like Dortmund in the 2019/20 season, operated largely on a back-five system last season.

This allowed Hakimi to excel again in his favorite right-back role.

In all, the 22-year-old scored seven and assisted ten in 37 league games, as Inter clinched their first Serie A title in 10 years.

In turn, such an impressive form inevitably resulted in Hakimi’s linking with another movement in Europe.

It was said that the favorites for the young man were PSG and Chelsea.

Why Hakimi joined PSG over Chelsea

In the end, however, it would be PSG that would win the race for the Moroccan.

It is understood that the French side has paid around £ 51.3 million upfront, with that figure potentially rising to £ 60 million.

And now, Hakimi has opened up to his summer change to PSG.

The defender confirmed that he had an offer from Chelsea and an offer from PSG, but felt that he had to go to Paris and that he would be happy there:

“I had two offers, one from Chelsea and the other from Paris Saint-Germain.

“But I felt that I had to come to Paris, that I would have been happy there.

“PSG is a great club, I really appreciate the support that the fans gave me right away. I was lucky because many other champions joined me. “I feel good at PSG, we have a dream team and I am happy to be part of it.”
