Borussia Dortmund loanee Achraf Hakimi : Real Madrid return? I want to play

Achraf Hakimi is on loan at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid

Achraf Hakimi was asked about his future, with his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid set to end in June.

Real Madrid full-back Achraf Hakimi said he wants to play and continue growing as his loan deal with Borussia Dortmund expires at the end of the season.

Achraf has starred for Bundesliga side Dortmund since arriving from LaLiga giants Madrid on a two-season loan contract in 2018.

The 21-year-old produced another solid performance as Dortmund defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg.

Achraf is set to return to Madrid at season’s end but the Morocco international said anything is possible as he looks to further his development.

“That’s what people say and the contract I have signed,” Achraf said when asked about his loan spell ending in June. “Everything can happen in June, but we’ll see what the summer holds.

“In my head is that I want to play and I want to continue growing. Here in Germany they are giving me the opportunity.”

 

Erling Haaland scored a quick-fire second-half brace to lead Dortmund past visiting French champions PSG on Tuesday.

Haaland has been a revelation since swapping Salzburg for Dortmund in January, scoring 11 goals in all competitions and Achraf hailed his team-mate post-game.

“We have prepared the game quite well and it worked out well,” Achraf added. “Haaland has helped us a lot and we hope it stays that way.

“He [Haaland] has been smart. He is still young and knows he has to play.”
