Achraf Hakimi will return to Real Madrid, the club he calls “home” if they want him, but he admits there are no guarantees.

Achraf Hakimi has enjoyed a great two-season loan spell at Borussia Dortmund.

The full-back has been in sensational form. The kind of form that would probably get him into almost any top side.

The player has always said it was his dream to play for Real Madrid.

However, the Moroccan also been keen to insist that he has enjoyed his time in the Bundesliga and being a first-team regular.

Speaking to Telefoot, the 21-year-old Moroccan international admits he will return to Real Madrid if they want him.

It is the club he still calls his home and he is immensely grateful to Zidane for his big break.

But, the young defender is also under no illusions that his future may lie elsewhere too.

He said:

“Real Madrid are the club I call home.”

“I’ve really enjoyed myself there and played lots of games there.”

“Zidane is the man who gave me my chance and the confidence to be able to play professional football.”

“I’m grateful to him for his faith in me and the way he has treated me. I’ll always be grateful to him.”

“If Madrid wants me to go back I’ll go back, and if not, I’ll have to write the next chapter at another great club.”
