Despite suggestions that they were unable to pay the next instalment of the transfer fee for Achraf Hakimi, Inter have settled the matter and reached an agreement with Real Madrid.
The Morocco international joined the Nerazzurri from the La Liga club last summer and has so far enjoyed a fine start to life in Serie A, playing a crucial role in Inter’s Scudetto challenge.
Whilst it had earlier been reported that Inter’s ongoing financial concerns may hamper their ability to afford payments on Hakimi’s €40 million transfer, Calciomercato.com report that such fears are unfounded.
Indeed, Inter have already reached an agreement with Real Madrid to defer the next payment until March 30 and both parties are entirely satisfied with the arrangement.
Real Madrid remain confident that payment will be made and have no issues with the delay, with Inter given additional time to complete the first instalment.
Hakimi has scored six goals and provided five assists in 25 appearances for Inter across all competitions this season.
