PSG and Chelsea in the race for Hakimi
by | VIEW 360
The financial situation at Giuseppe Meazza is far from ideal. Inter will have to sell the most valuable pieces of the champion's mosaic in order to stabilize the situation in the box office, and judging by the writings of the Italian media, the "sacrificial lamb" will be Achraf Hakimi.
Dissatisfied with the performance of Alessandro Florenzi, Paris Saint-Germain immediately showed up at the next to the Inter's window and offered 60,000,000 euros for the Moroccan right-back. However, as the Italian Sky writes, Chelsea joined the auction and in the beginning equalized the offer of the Parisian club.
It will not be enough for either of them to take Hakimi away from Milan just a year after he arrived at the club. Inter put a price of 80,000,000 euros on the 22-year-old football player, but, the source points out, he is more open to cooperating with the London club.
Namely, Inter is interested in two Chelsea defenders, Emerson Palmieri and Andreas Christensen, with Nerazzurri loaning the Italian left-back, while the current European champions would prefer to sell the former Roma player.
The formation with two offensive defenders forced by Thomas Tuchel, similar to the one in which he played at Inter, ideally suits Hakimi, who is primarily known for his attacking characteristics, which he confirmed with seven goals and ten assists in the recently completed season.
True, the London club also has Rece James in Hakimi's position, but James played a few games in formation with three central defenders at the end of the season as a right central-defender, so the German expert would have no problem securing a place for both of them in the starting lineup.
And if we imagine Erling Haaland playing together with them ... In front of the Chelsea fans, there is an exciting transfer window. It seems that Abramovich wants to strengthen his team again, just like last season when a couple of fantastic players came.
However, at the beginning of the season, they rarely played well, and most expected Chelsea to fight for a place leading to Europe, but also to be relegated from the Champions League. The end of the season brought an amazing outcome.
Chelsea managed to win the Champions League even though they were outsiders both in the final and in previous matches. The Chelsea team wants to repeat the same success, which will be very difficult If they achieve the set goals, they will surely be very dangerous next season
