Neither Real Madrid nor Inter Milan gave financial details of the transfer. But according to Italian sports media, the operation would have ended around 40 million euros plus bonuses estimated at five million euros.
Born in Madrid, Hakimi has dual Moroccan and Spanish nationality and joined Real football school when he was eight.
He played a few matches with Real during the 2017-2018 season but really exploded in Dortmund where he was on loan for the past two seasons and where he was an indisputable holder.
Offensive, ultra-fast side, he should be a valuable reinforcement for Inter Antonio Conte coach and occupy the right flank of his 3-5-2, where neither Antonio Candreva nor Victor Moses have fully convinced this season.
