Manchester United are in the market for a new right-back and Paris Saint-Germain’s Achraf Hakimi is on the target list.
According to Football Insider, Manchester United are prepared to agree the asking price to sign the Morocco international from PSG.
The African star is one of the best attacking right-backs in the world, and it goes without saying that he would be a significant upgrade on Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Chelsea are also linked with the former Inter Milan star, but they won’t be able to offer him Champions League football next season. That puts United ahead in the race for Hakimi’s signature.
The report claims United are willing to meet the asking price of £50-60 million to hire the services of the highly-rated full-back.
With acquisitions hanging over Hakimi’s head and a £215,000-per-week contract in Paris, I think we should forget about this one.
Let us know in the comments section if you think Hakimi could come to United.
