Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has confirmed that Achraf Hakimi will be leaving the club.


The 21-year-old, who has been on loan from Real Madrid for the last two seasons, is understood to be on the verge of joining Inter in a deal worth around €40 million.

While Dortmund are eager to keep Hakimi at the club, they simply can't match the fee that Inter are willing to pay for the 21-year-old.

"We were hoping to be able to keep Achraf, but Real Madrid want to cash in as much as possible," Zorc told Sky and added:

"There has been a new development in the last few days. The sum in question will be higher.

"At some point, we realized that we didn't want to and couldn't go along with it."
