The agent of Achraf Hakimi, who is currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid, has revealed that while the player’s ultimate aim is to end up at the ‘best team in the world’ (his parent club), there’s no need to hurry making a decision on his immediate future.

Hakimi has emerged as one of the brightest young talents in Europe, acting as a crucial member of Lucien Favre’s Dortmund side. The wing-back has made 40 appearances in all competitions this season up to this point, netting eight times and providing a stunning ten assists.

The 21-year-old’s hugely impressive performances at Dortmund haven’t gone unnoticed, with a number of top clubs from across Europe showing an interest in him.

However, Hakimi’s agent Alejandro Camano recently revealed that his client will return to Madrid this summer, while the player himself also admitted that Real Madrid are the club he ‘calls home’.

Camano has now provided another update on the versatile player’s future, insisting that Hakimi sees his long-term future at the Santiago Bernabeu. As for the short-term, however, no decision has yet been made, and talks are ongoing about what will be best for Hakimi’s development – but there is no hurry.

“He will link back up with Real Madrid when the season finishes. We’ll see what happens after that,” Camano told Onda Madrid, as quoted by Goal. “He wants to play games, like this season, where he has started every match. There’s no rush. His only aspiration is to play games to help his development.

“There’s a magnificent dialogue with Real Madrid and they always expect to have him on their radar and what we don’t want is to distance ourselves from them too much.

Camano went on to explain that while the Moroccan’s short-term future at the club hasn’t yet been decided, he is keen to eventually nail down a place in the starting lineup for what he believes is the best team in the world.

“So, we’ll reach an agreement of some sort over whether he stays or goes, but without forgetting that the aim is to play for Real Madrid one day because, for him, it’s the best club in the world.

“It could be a short wait if Real Madrid offer him to stay now or a long wait if he doesn’t stay, but the aim is always the same – end up [playing for] the best club in the world.”
