Over the last few days, the rumors regarding Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi have cooled down slightly. However, that’s not because the capital club isn’t interested in the 22-year-old, but has their take it or leave it sum on the table for the Italian club.
According to Corriere dello Sport (via Canal Supporters), the French giants are willing to pay €70-million, including bonuses for Hakimi. Still, it seems that the offer isn’t good enough as Inter Milan wants at least €80-million plus bonuses.
It doesn’t appear as though Les Parisiens are willing to meet that price, so it’s a game of chess that’s occurring. The Italian club hopes that two clubs, who have shown interest in the past in Chelsea FC and FC Bayern Munich, revisit the Hakimi file as they’d like to create a bidding war.
Nonetheless, the report states that Inter Milan needs to make a significant sale by June 30th, so they can only wait so long on another club looking to join PSG in the pursuit of Hakimi.
