The agent of Achraf Hakimi has claimed that no discussions have been held about the future of the Real Madrid defender amid interest from Chelsea.

Since moving to German giants Borussia Dortmund on a two-year loan deal back in July 2018, the Morocco international defender has played 64 games in all competitions and has established himself as one of the best full-backs in Bundesliga.

The form of the 21-year-old defender has allegedly led to interest from the likes of PSG and Chelsea, who may be in the market for a new full-back when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.

However, the Real Madrid starlets agent Alejandro Camano has claimed that no decision has been made where the Morocco international will continue his career next season.

Camano told Spox: “The contract with Real Madrid is still the one we negotiated in 2017 and that runs to June 2022.

‘We’ll have to wait and see. After the coronavirus crisis is over, we’ll sit down with Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund to discuss the matter.”

Before linking up with German giants, Hakimi played a total of 17 senior appearences for the Los Blancos under Zinedine Zidane and due to high competition at the right-back position player could consider options somewhere else.
