According to press reports, Real Madrid may move to restore Moroccan defender Ashraf Hakimi from Inter Milan, after the Italian club failed and failed to adhere to the terms of the agreement between the two clubs, and the royal club was quick to respond to these reports.
The Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport reported that Inter Milan was unable to pay 10 million euros, representing the first installment of Hakimi's transfer to the team, which was signed last summer at a value of 40 million euros.
She explained that the Italian club suffers from a financial crisis due to the repercussions of the Corona pandemic, and the decline in income, with the continued absence of fans from the stadiums.
The newspaper said that this faltering could push Real Madrid to take advantage of the situation and restore its brilliant player, who scored 6 goals and 5 assists since the start of the current season.
The royal club was not late in responding, as the Spanish newspaper Marca quoted sources from the team confirming that there was no dispute with Inter Milan, after a new agreement was reached to reschedule Hakimi's deal installments in a way that suits the Italian club's financial conditions.
Real Madrid later published a statement describing the Italian newspaper's report as a liar, and affirming its adherence to the distinguished ties that bind it to Inter Milan.

This information ended early speculation about Real Madrid's move to restore Hakimi, who has a contract with Inter until 2025, especially in light of the decline in the performance of the royal club and its need for big deals next summer to strengthen the ranks and compensate for the departure of many players.
