Real Madrid are eager to re-sign Achraf Hakimi. As per El Chiringuito, via Calcio Mercato. The Los Blancos want to find a replacement for Dani Carvajal whose contract is ending with the club at the end of next season. But, Man United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka is Real Madrid’s top choice as things stand. So, Inter’s wing-back Hakimi is seen as the next option.
Real Madrid sold Acraf Hakimi to the Nerazzurri this past summer in a deal worth € 45 million including add-ons. But based on this report it appears that they are regretting the decision to let the Moroccan go. But Hakimi has gelled well into Conte’s system and is irreplaceable. The Moroccan is having a great season at the San Siro.
Madrid eager to re-sign Hakimi as a replacement for Carvajal
Real Madrid is having problems in the right-back position. Dani Carvajal is out with an injury, his backup Odriozola has not proven thus far. Now he is out due to an injury too. They had to try Lucas Vasquez, who is primarily a winger. While Hakimi is having a great season at Inter. He has scored 6 goals and 6 assists across all competitions in his 30 appearances. The Moroccan is one of the fastest players in the world. He has the ability to beat any full-back with ease. His crosses and cut-backs are mostly accurate. He scans the opponent’s defence really well to find space to run into. The 22-year-old is very technical on the ball and is able to play a quick one-two with Barella effectively. His pace makes the life of the opponent’s wingers tough as it’s hard to get past him in one on one.
Inter are struggling financially because of uncertainty in their ownership. But the board would not let a player like him go that easily.
