Apart from Cristiano Ronaldoś departure, Real Madrid have also give away Achraf Hakimi. The international Moroccan footballer will play on loan the next two year at Borussia Dortmund, following Daniel Carvajal steps, who also went to play at Bundesliga on loan to come back after as a great right back.
The German club and Real Madrid have made official the deal, a good destination for Achraf. He played the World Cup with Morocco as a left back, but he didn’t have many opportunities this season at Real Madrid. He was able to play 9 games this season at La Liga with a total of 757 minutes. He even scored two goals, against Sevilla and Celta de Vigo.
Achraf is a youngster grew in La Fábrica and the club expects him to come back after these two seasons in Germany as there is a lot of confidence in his skills. He was born in Madrid 19 years ago, but he plays with Morocco because his family is from this African country.
Real Madrid signed some weeks ago Álvaro Odriozola from Real Sociedad. With his arrival, it was pretty clear that Achraf needed to leave the club as there is no space for him. Now, Carvajal and Odriozola will fight for the right back position, with Nacho Fernández as an alternative if both get injured. The right back position is one of the best covered positions in the squad right now.
Achraf arrived to the club with 8 years, so he has spent 12 years at Real Madrid. For this reason, he would like to play more minutes as a great level and become a great richt back to have the chance to come back to his beloved club. “Achraf is a young defender and very dynamic, who has played at the top level with Real Madrid and the Moroccan national team”, the director of Borussia Dortmund, Michael Zorc, commented to the press.
