PSG had been in the driver’s seat for Achraf Hakimi’s signature all along, and now, after a brief dalliance in the Chelsea rumor mill (wherein we didn’t even make a bid), a complete agreement has been reached. Hakimi himself, or his family, never looked like wanting to go anywhere other than Paris.
Achraf Hakimi will be in Paris in the next hours in order to complete his move to Paris Saint-Germain. He’s set to complete his medical and sign until June 2026. Just a matter of time for official announcement. #PSG— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 27, 2021
Inter will receive €70/71m from PSG board, confirmed.
However, Inter’s supposed move for Marcos Alonso to reinforce the opposite flank has hit a roadblock, with Chelsea unlikely to allow him to leave at a discount, as per Corriere dello Sport (via Sempre Inter) and Gazzetta dello Sport (via Inside Futbol).
Barcelona are also (once again) interested in Alonso’s services, as per Mundo Deportivo. They apparently want him as the replacement for the outgoing Junior Firpo, although their first-choice target is José Luis Gayà of Valencia.
