As in summer 2020, the Moroccan right-back Achraf Hakimi will be associated with FC Bayern. SPOX and goal answer the most important questions about the transfer rumor.
Yes. Hakimi has been on the Munich list for over a year. Last summer there was a brief exchange between Alejandro Camano, the right-back’s advisor, and Bayern. After that it was clear relatively quickly: Hakimi is too expensive for the German record champions with a price tag of 45 million euros.
Inter Milan was therefore awarded the contract and equipped Real Madrid’s home-grown company with a five-year contract after its two-year loan from Borussia Dortmund. The FCB bosses around sports director Hasan Salihamidzic then decided to sign Bouna Sarr (29). Since the Frenchman has not yet proven to be an adequate backup for Benjamin Pavard (25), the Munich team are now looking for a new right-back. One of the candidates: Hakimi.
So far, there has been no contact with the player and his advisor. Hakimi advisor Camano too SPOX and goal: “I don’t know where the rumors come from. I wouldn’t be surprised if FC Bayern were interested in Achraf, but nobody from FC Bayern contacted me.”
Camano refers to Hakimi’s contract in Milan, which runs until June 30, 2025 and emphasizes: “Achraf is very happy at Inter. He’s not thinking of anything else.” The consultant still does not close the door for a change: “Who would not like to play for FC Bayern?”
Is FC Bayern interested in Achraf Hakimi?
Bayern could benefit from this and flush money into the tight Inter-coffers with a Hakimi transfer. However, there are several reasons that speak against it:
All in all, there is still a lot to do before a Hakimi transfer to Munich is possible – although Hakimi’s tactical variability and offensive urge would undoubtedly fit Nagelsmann football. The system with a three or five defensive chain, which the successor to Hansi Flick is currently still playing in Leipzig, is similar to that of Conte at Inter.
Max Aarons (21) from English second division Norwich City has been traded for a long time, Ridle Baku (23) from Bundesliga competitor VfL Wolfsburg is also on the radar.
However, there were only one player recently: Lucas Vazquez (29). According to information from SPOX and goal Talks with Vazquez’s management in April, but offered only six instead of the eight million euros the Spaniards demanded.
Vazquez is now expected to extend his contract in Madrid, which expires on June 30th. In any case, a transfer to Munich without a transfer is off the table.
