Zinedine Zidane reportedly wants to bring Achraf Hakimi back to Real Madrid when his two-year loan spell at Borussia Dortmund ends next summer
The Morocco international has flourished under Lucien Favre this season, gobbling six goals and five assists 23 appearances across all competitions.
After overcoming some injury issues that were troubling him during the 2018/19 campaign, the 21-year-old has emerged as one of the most promising wing-backs in Europe.

Capable of covering both flanks equally well, the Los Blancos youth academy product will pose a real threat to Nacho, Ferland Mendy, and Alvaro Odriozola should he makes a return to the Bernabeu.
Ask to comment on Hakimi’s performance at Dortmund, Zidane replied: “We’re happy because he’s scoring goals with his team.”
The Frenchman is obviously keen to prevent his loanee from making his stay in the Bundesliga permanent and will instead try to lure him back to the Spanish capital.
If he manages to keep the same level of consistency throughout the season, Hakimi is likely to earn a spot in Zidane’s starting XI next season.
