Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the signing of full-back Achraf Hakimi from Inter on a five-year deal.
The Morocco international passed a medical after the Nerazzurri accepted an offer reportedly worth an initial €68million with a further €3m possible through bonuses.
Hakimi shone in Serie A after joining from Real Madrid, contributing seven goals and 10 assists last season as Antonio Conte’s side were crowned champions for the first time in a decade.
He had previously spent two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund after failing to break into the Madrid first team on a regular basis.
“I feel a great sense of pride,” he said via PSG’s 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 team-mates, 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 team-mates and will do everything I can to deliver what is expected of me.”
Chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: “We are delighted to welcome Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint-Germain. This calibre of signing shows the level of our ambitions – we continue to build something very special.
“Achraf may only be 22 years old and has already established himself as one of the most talented full-backs in world football – these are the standards we set at the club. I know Achraf will have a fantastic career with us and the whole club wishes him every success in our colours.”
