Official: Real Madrid Announce Next Departure
After Cristiano Ronaldo officially left Real Madrid to join Juventus for €100 million on Tuesday, Los Blancos have now announced their next departure.
The Spanish giants have loaned Moroccan right-back Achraf Hakimi to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. The 19-year-old joins the German club on a two-year loan deal until the end of the 2019/20 season.
"Achraf Hakimi is a young, very dynamic fullback, who has played for Real Madrid and the Moroccan national team at the highest level," BVB sporting director Michael Zorc said of the loan transfer.
Hakimi broke into Real's first team under Zinedine Zidane last season, making 17 appearances for Los Blancos, but his position as the second-choice right-back behind Dani Carvajal came under threat after the Spanish giants bought Alvaro Odriozola recently.
