- The Moroccan will join Inter Milan next week, it is said.
- The parties have already agreed on a deal worth €45m.
- The buy-back clause 'has never been discussed'.
Looks like Achraf Hakimi's move to Italy is all but confirmed.
Here's what transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has told his Twitter followers.
"Achraf Hakimi to Inter, here we go! Total agreement for €40M + €5M add ons to Real Madrid on permanent deal. Buy back clause has never been discussed - no chance. He'll join Inter on next week also with medicals and official announcement."
The rumoured reason for Hakimi's sale is said to be the starting XI spot that is not guaranteed to the 21-year-old at the Bernabeu.
Achraf Hakimi had a magnificent last season with Borussia Dortmund. The right-back was a regular starter for the Bundesliga side, having made 45 appearances in which he netted 9 goals and provided 10 assists.
The Moroccan is valued at €54m, so letting him go for €40m is perhaps a bargain for Inter Milan.
