Achraf Hakimi is one of Borussia Dortmund’s main players and has helped the team a lot during this season. However, a big problem follows him: What will be his destination next season?
On loan from Real Madrid, his contract only goes until next summer. And, any Dortmund fan knows, that it would be disastrous for the team to lose such an important piece for the whole Borussia Dortmund system in a moment of inflation in the Football market.
Hakimi came to Dortmund like many others: a young guy who didn’t have space on a heavyweight club. He was hoping for a possibility to get some minutes and further developing his skills as a professional player and consequently becoming a starter at the German side.
And unlike many others, Achraf Hakimi has not only corresponded to the high expectations from the supporters and the staff but also gained confidence and could step up in key moments for the team, especially over the last few months, with important goals in the German Bundesliga and absolutely vital goals for Dortmund’s UEFA Champions League campaign so far this season.
Therefore, it is not surprising that his future is not as defined as Real Madrid, or Borussia Dortmund themselves would like.
But Hakimi’s priority will be the development of his game, not where he plays, so the imminent end of his loan with the black and yellow side is taken with some lightness.
“Until summer comes, there are still six months left, and therefore several games. In the end, I must decide between what advantages Dortmund has and what awaits me in Madrid, ”said the Maroccan, newly elected as the Best Young Player in Africa for 2019.
“All I can say is that I am very happy to be at Borussia Dortmund, I feel very comfortable,” Achraf added as if wanting to give hope to the yellow and black fans.
In fact, he can become a Borussia Dortmund legend and a generational player if he stays, as he will go on just to become another one in Madrid. Let’s see what the future holds for this young talent.
