The full-back impressed during Inter Milan's Serie A title-winning campaign but he opted to leave the club after just one season.

The Moroccan has revealed there were offers from PSG and the Blues, but he admits was going to be more happier in the French capital.

"When I received these two offers [from Chelsea and PSG], I had the intuition that I had to come to Paris, that I was going to be happy there," Hakimi told L'Equipe

"PSG is a great club, and I appreciated how much the people here seemed to love and desire me. And I was lucky that my arrival was accompanied by great transfers.

"I am already sure I wasn’t wrong; I feel good, we have a dream team, and I am happy to be part of it."

The 22-year-old has certainly impressed in the early stages of his PSG career after scoring three goals in eight Ligue 1 appearances.
