ATLANTA, GEORGIA—Moroccan soccer superstar Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakimi is one lucky and happy dude these days.
This scenario came after it was learned that Hakimi is set to transfer to Paris Saint-Germain on a record deal.
Sources revealed that once the transfer becomes official next week, Hakimi will become the most expensive full-back in football history.
According to reports, Paris Saint-Germain has agreed to pay Inter Milan up to €70 million — bonuses included for the transfer of Hakimi who is set to sign a five-year deal in Paris.
Mager Mauricio Pochettino and sporting director Leonardo have long wanted to sign the 22-year-old star to the team so they immediately grab the chance to seek his transfer from the Serie A champion.
Before his transfer, Hakimi was acquired by Inter Milan last summer from Real Madrid for €40m after two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
Losing Hakimi might be bad but the Italian champions are set to use the money for his transfer in settling the team’s debts.
Paris is on the move these days since Hakimi is the club’s third reinforcement this summer, following the free-agent signings of Gini Wijnaldum and Gianluigi Donnarumma, which is expected to be announced soon.
