Achraf Hakimi has completed his €40m transfer to Inter in the summer transfer window, bringing his three-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu to an end.
As reported Madrid are threatening Inter to sue
Real Madrid have denied claims that they want to return Achraf Hakimi amid an alleged payment dispute with Inter. Hakimi has completed his €40m transfer to Inter in the summer transfer window, bringing his three-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu to an end. The Serie A giants agreed to pay the final fee in four €10 million instalments. The first of which was initially supposed to be in December last year. The two clubs signed a new agreement extending the payout starting in March, with Inter struggling financially amid the coronavirus pandemic. Still, Madrid are threatening to sue over late money transfers. The Italian newspaper even claimed that Blancos were eager to cancel the entire deal and re-sign Hakimi. Still, the reigning LaLiga champions have now come out with an official statement to set the record straight.
Real Madrid’s statement says that all reporters about Hakimi’s re-sign is frankly false
“With regards to the information published about the alleged tension between our club and Inter Milan. Real Madrid want to make it clear that such reports are frankly false,” a statement on the club’s website reads. Real Madrid has not required an alleged guarantee from Inter Milan, as stated in the publication. The terms of the player’s transfer to Inter are formalized in the usual and normal contractual relations between football clubs. That is especially true in this case with Inter Milan. With whom Real Madrid have always maintained and continue to strengthen excellent ties as a historic and friendly club”. Hakimi’s agent Alejandro Camano also rejected the reports, saying: “I don’t know anything about it. We haven’t received any calls from Real Madrid. Achraf is happy at Inter and is only focused on doing his best for Inter.”
“His goal is to win with Inter, and he doesn’t think about anything else”. Hakimi will return to the fight for a spot with Inter when they participate in the Serie A trip to Udinese on Saturday night. The 22-year-old has scored six goals in 24 appearances in all Nerazzurri competitions to date and has provided six assists for his teammates.
