This Tuesday, Paris Saint-Germain made official the arrival of the right side Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan. A very big blow on this summer transfer window for the vice-champion of France, who did not hesitate to make a check of 71 million euros (bonus included) for the Moroccan international.
Achraf Hakimi has signed for Paris Saint-Germain.
After the arrival of midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, free at the end of his contract with Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain made official on Tuesday their second summer recruit: the right side Achraf Hakimi!
Considered a real priority by the Parisian sports director Leonardo for several weeks, the Moroccan international was recruited for a check of 71 million euros.
Hakimi, les dtails de l’opration
On this issue, PSG will actually spend 60 million euros immediately, with then 11 million euros in bonuses, including 8 easily attainable and 3 more difficult. For his part, despite an approach from Chelsea, the young talent of 22 years was quickly won over by the prospect of joining the vice-champion of France and signed a contract until June 2026.
I feel a lot of pride today. After my experiences in Spain, Germany and Italy, Paris Saint-Germain offers me the opportunity to discover a new championship under the colors of one of the most prestigious clubs in the world. I look forward to meeting my new teammates, the fans and feeling the extraordinary fervor that reigns at the Parc des Princes. I share with the staff and the players the same very high ambitions and will do everything to give my club what it expects of me, confided the native of Madrid for the official site of the PSG.
A very big blow
On the European market, Paris has obviously hit very hard. While waiting for the officialization of the movement of Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho Manchester United for 85 million euros, it is also for the moment the most important operation. And above all, this transfer will resolve the problems known by PSG in this position, with the rather average performance of Alessandro Florenzi last year.
We are happy to welcome Achraf Hakimi Paris today, said Parisian President Nasser Al-Khelafi. The signing of a player of this stature shows the level of our ambitions. We continue to build something very special. Achraf is only 22 years old, but he’s already established himself as one of the best full-backs in the football world, and that’s the standard we set for ourselves at the club. I know Ashraf will have a fantastic career with us and the whole club wish him every success under our colors. Indeed, with such a player, PSG can rub their hands!
