At Paris SG for one season, Achraf Hakimi spoke about the continuation of his career during the tour in Qatar.
Everyone has only the name of Kylian Mbappé (23 years) in the mouth. The soccer world is holding its breath waiting for the announcement of his decision. The Paris SG the first. His friend Achraf Hakimi (23 years) too. But at the microphone of Al Kass Channel during the tour in Qatar, the right-back, recruited last summer from Inter for nearly € 60 million, remained very enigmatic about his own future.
So, when asked about Real Madrid, his formative club, the Moroccan international (48 caps, 8 goals) clearly opened the door to a return. “This is the club that gave me my chance, that allowed me to reach the professional level, that taught me everything, football-wise and personally. I thank Real Madrid very much. We’ll see what happens in the future, but hey, this is my home and I’ve always loved being there,” he said.
Desires of elsewhere?
A statement that may cause a lot of ink to flow, while Mbappé also seems to be leaving for Santiago Bernabeu and their last common escapade in the Spanish capital had already caused some talk. Under contract until June 2026 with the Red and Blue, the Atlas Lion – who has already played in Spain (Real), Germany (Borussia Dortmund), Italy (Inter) and now in France (PSG) – has not closed the door to a future experience in England, and this, even if he also hinted that his goal is to win the next Champions League with Paris.
“The Premier League? You can never say never, why not one day go there, and enjoy it, it is one of the best leagues in the world, very competitive, in my opinion,” he sent. Without ever talking about timing on these two topics, he only answered the questions asked. But while RMC Sport recently suggested that Achraf Hakimi did not feel totally comfortable in the Parisian locker room and understood on the field, his words take perhaps another tenor. The beginning of another soap opera?
