Inter wait to announce Hakimi

Inter are not expected to announce the signing of Achraf Hakimi from Real Madrid until the end of the Serie A season at the earliest.

Hakimi completed his transfer to Inter for €40m plus €5m in bonuses yesterday, passing his medical and signing a five-year contract.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport writes the full-back has been given permission to start his summer holidays now after Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga campaign ended last weekend.

Therefore, official confirmation of his move is unlikely to take place until the Nerazzurri call him back for 2020-21 preseason.

Serie A 19-20 will end no later than early next month, but it may be that Inter wait until the conclusion of their Europa League run, which will fall on August 21 if they reach the Final.
