PSG Sign Achraf Hakimi From Inter In Deal Worth €70M


Paris Saint-Germain football club of France has completed the signing of the 22-year-old full-back Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan.

 

The Morocco international was signed on Tuesday, July 6, for €60 million (£52m/$71m), plus €10m (£9m$12m) in add-ons.

 

“I feel a great sense of pride today," Hakimi told PSG's official website. 

 

"After Spain, Germany and Italy, Paris Saint-Germain offers me the chance to discover a new championship with one of the most prestigious clubs in the world.

 

"I can’t wait to meet my new teammates, the fans and experience the incredible colour and passion inside the Parc des Princes.

 

"I share the same big ambitions as the coaching staff and my teammates and will do everything I can to deliver what is expected of me.”

 

Inter Milan's CEO Giuseppe Marotta explained that the club's dire financial situation meant they had no choice but to sell him.

 

He told Sky Italia: 

"Obviously, this is a painful moment for us, but I am an administrator who must guarantee the economic sustainability of the club during a difficult time for the world of football in general.

 

"Once the Hakimi operation is concluded, it will allow us to have a bit of breathing room and we hope that we will no longer need to sell any other big players, as we want to maintain most of the squad that won the Scudetto."

 

Hakimi made 37 appearances in all competitions for Inter during his one season at the club, helping them win the Serie A title.
