Achraf Hakimi’s contractual situation is a concern for Real Madrid, according to AS. The 21-will be out of contract in June 2021 and Madrid must decide whether to renew his contract. Another option for Los Blancos is to sell him this summer to prevent him from leaving on a free contract next year.

Club sources at Madrid told AS, “We still do not know what we are going to do with Achraf.” Madrid are aware of the defender’s potential and value in the transfer market. In Italy, several media outlets report that Juventus are lining up an offer for the full-back

The Moroccan international has played 37 games this season, scoring seven goals and providing 10 assists. In his two seasons at Dortmund, he has played 65 games, netting 10 goals and setting up 17. He also experienced success in Germany, winning the German Super Cup.

When Achraf arrived to play in the Bundesliga, his market value was €7.5m, according to Transfermarkt, now, after two successful seasons in Germany, he is worth €60m. Chelsea and PSG are both reportedly keeping an eye on the player’s situation.
