Borussia Dortmund Sign Real Madrid’s Hakimi On Loan


Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Morocco international, Achraf Hakimi, from Real Madrid on a two-year loan deal, the Bundesliga club announced on Wednesday.

An attacking full-back, Hakimi started all three of Morocco’s games at the World Cup in Russia before they were eliminated in the group stage.

The 19-year-old Real Madrid academy graduate made nine league appearances for the Spanish club under Zinedine Zidane last season, as well as playing five times in the King’s Cup and twice in the Champions League.

“Achraf Hakimi is a young, very dynamic full-back, who has played at the very highest level with Real Madrid and the Morocco national team,’’ Dortmund Sporting Director, Michael Zorc, said in a statement.

Hakimi is new manager Lucien Favre’s latest acquisition in a busy close season.

The acquisition followed the arrival of goalkeepers Marwin Hitz and Eric Oelschlagel, midfielders Thomas Delaney, Marius Wolf and defender Abdou Diallo.

He will join the Dortmund squad during the U.S. pre-season tour between July 18 and July 26.
