“Zinedine is the man who gave me my fortune and confidence that I can play professional football. I am thankful to him for believing in me and how he treats me.”
The contract was the same, so Hakimi has not agreed on it
Dortmund defender Ioanee Achraf Hakimi has not agreed on a new contract with Real Madrid, as its long-term future remains uncertain. A report suggested that Morocco International had a pen on paper over a new deal for the Bernabéu, which would keep it in the club until 2023. Agent of Hakimi, Alejandro Camano, however, confirmed that this is not the case and that discussions will need to be held after the coronavirus pandemic is brought under control. Camano said: “There is no reason at all. His contract at Real is the same that we agreed on in 2017, and it is valid until 2022.” We have to wait.” After this disaster, we will sit together with Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.”
Lucien Favre wants Achraf to stay at Dortmund
The 21-year-old striker made an impression during his two-year standings with the Bundesliga title hopefuls and regularly performed in the starting lineup of Lucien Favre. In the 2019-20 campaign, he made 22 starts in the league and scored three goals, and also provided an impressive ten assists for his team-mates. Hakimi also scored four goals in eight matches of the Champions League for Dortmund, while his form was reportedly aroused interest by such Bayern Munich, Juventus, and PSG. Dortmund, however, hopes that they can save Hakimi if he is not part of Zinedine Zidane’s plans for the 2020-21 season. Indeed, the Moroccan has already stated that Achraf wants to return to Madrid and become part of their first team. He told reporters: “Real Madrid is a club that I call home.
Zidane is the man who gave him his chance
“I enjoyed it and played a lot of games there. If Madrid wants me to come back, I will return. And if not, I will have to write the next chapter in another great club.” Hakimi added. “Zinedine is the man who gave me my fortune and confidence that I can play professional football. I am thankful to him for believing in me and how he treats me. I will always be grateful to him. “Thinking about his decision to move to Dortmund, Hakimi said:” When I stop, and I think I understand that this was the best decision I could make, because I play and grow as a football player, and that’s what I need to do.”
