Achraf Hakimi is not comfortable at PSG and wants to leave the club this summer, reports journalist Jorge Picon. He further adds that the Moroccan international would be ‘delighted’ to re-sign for Real Madrid even though it is seen as difficult at the moment.

A product of the Real Madrid youth academy, Hakimi never really got a proper run at the club. After featuring sparingly during the 2017/18 season, the 24-year-old spent two campaigns away on loan at Borussia Dortmund, where he was brilliant.

Soon after returning though, Real Madrid opted to cash in on him, selling him to Inter Milan in 2020. And only a year later, PSG splashed a big sum to secure his services.

Hakimi has made close to 80 appearances for the Ligue 1 champions and has been directly involved in 20 goals.

The right-back is understood to be not very comfortable at Parc des Princes and feels he has not felt the support of the club during some tough times for him recently.

As such, he would be open to leaving the club in the summer. And the idea of a possible return to Real Madrid seems to appeal to the defender.

Los Blancos are not looking at a new right-back as a priority for the summer, but reports have suggested that Carlo Ancelotti wants to reinforce both full-back positions or sign a player who can play on both right and left sides.

However, a move for Hakimi is unlikely to be on the agenda at Real Madrid for now. The 24-year-old has a contract with PSG until 2026 and given the broken relationship between the two clubs, negotiations seem impossible.

Beyond that, the Spanish capital giants are also looking to sign a new striker. And with Jude Bellingham also arriving, the club might have some reservations about spending heavily on a right-back as well this summer.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
