He had 10 assists and 10 goals in 44 games. That’s impressive for a WB tbh. I’m little surprised at his price.
Im guessing if he was a Barca player, they’d ask 80 for sure.

I wouldn't be surprised if the price is so low because of a buy-back clause, which RM like to use, although no one has reported there being one.

Hope his bones are not made of glass and his ligaments of napkins

I find it a little hard to believe Bayern was after him since they have Pavard as their starting RB and they play with 4-man defence.

According to SPORT1 (German source), they could only spend 20m for Hakimi due to coronavirus crisis. The only realistic opttion for them was to extend the loan for one more season.

I have to admit I don't know much about the guy, I only watch Inter matches nowadays so I have watched him play a grand total of two times.

He certainly was great against us in Dortmund.

I imagine Eriksen will love to pass him behind defenders.

No money. Most of their income is from fans, and with this corona crap and no fans, there is no money. I think the option they had was 30 mils. I read somewhere that they tried to renegotiate it to 20, but RM didnt want to hear about it.

This is incredible. As a RWB he's possibly one of the best options we could have got on the market. Amazing deal. Finally have some competence out there.

Like I’m still in disbelief. I remember someone bringing up his name in the defenders thread a while back and I pictured myself laughing and saying “Never going to happen” yet here we are.

They got Meunier for free, Dortmund don't like spending 45m on a player.

A few points to add on what everyone else has already said:

- Love the speed, we need that. Hakimi could potentially be our new Maicon
- Has a good presence of mind in the box for such a young player, something Candreva lacks even at 33
- I have also seen Hakimi play on the left a few times for Dortmund. He has a good right foot for shots. So thats a good back up option to have

One point of caution tho, Dortmund counter in numbers which makes Hakimi & his pace look great. He will find it harder at Inter when he has only 1-2 players to find, and with the defences sitting deep against us. So he may take time to start delivering.

12 years older than him :chan: though, it means she is maturer, wiser and may guide him with good advises... wait.... wasn't Wanda older than Icardi too?:unsure:

Barella's wife is also several years older and there's enough internet evidence to suggest they've been together since he was 18 years old (and she was 25).

I mean, I'm not here to judge. I know several women older than me who I think are fine as hell (for reference, I'm 26). It's more a question of what a 30-something wants to do with someone who's just turned 20-21 years old. You'd think there would just be so little in common and quite a few "didn't I outgrow some of those stupid young mistakes years ago?" reactions to seeing what the younger person is prone to doing.

EDIT - And how could I forget? Zlatan himself has almost the same gap with his wife and they got together around the same age as Achraf is now.

Gold diggers, most of them, they spot them while they are young, catch them and then the leeching begins :D

I strongly believe that age is just a number in everything, including marriage.
