Moroccan international Achraf Hakimi, on loan from Real Madrid to Borussia Dortmund, will continue his adventure at the Spanish capital’s club until 2023, reports the Spanish specialist daily “Marca” on Saturday.
Initially on contract until June 2021, the 21-year-old right-back would have signed an extension of his contract before his return to the merengues following a two-season loan period at Borussia Dortmund, the daily said.
“Achraf Akimi has become one of the revelations of European football since his arrival at Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2018, and his value has skyrocketed in the last season”, writes the Spanish publication, assuring that Real Madrid now has one of the jewels of the European football market.
Several major European teams, such as Bayern Munich and Juventus, were interested in the Moroccan international player, which prompted Florentino Pérez’s club to anticipate events and renew Hakimi’s contract with a “galactic release clause”, says Marca, a newspaper close to the Madrid club.
Arrived at Real Madrid in 2006, Achraf Hakimi went through all the categories of Real Madrid. He played 9 La Liga games under Zidane during the 2017-2018 season.
