Real Madrid did not expect Achraf Hakimi to have such a turnaround. They were planning to off-load him after his Borussia Dortmund two-year loan deal. And as it stands, Borussia cannot keep him, and went to secure Thomas Meunier.
Without first team guarantees at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Hakimi is looking for new challenges. Conte needs an attacking wing-back and he fits the bill. It is understood that a €40 million deal has been agreed between the two clubs.
