In an Instagram post, Hakimi gave fans and followers a clip of him getting in form and readying for the PSG move.
Although he joined Inter last summer from Real Madrid, helping Inter to lift the 2020-21 Serie A title in his first season with the club was a remarkable feat.
However, amid Inter’s financial difficulties, the club has been forced to sell Hakimi to raise funds.
The Inter-Milan boss, Marotta told Sky Italia, “We are at the final stages for Hakimi to PSG, it’s going to be a done deal in 24 hours.”
“Obviously, this is a painful moment for us, but I am an administrator who must guarantee the economic sustainability of the club during a difficult time for the world of football in general. Once the Hakimi operation is concluded, it will allow us to have a bit of breathing room and we really hope that we will no longer need to sell any other big players, as we want to maintain most of the squad that won the Scudetto.”
Hakimi was a key performer for Inter in 2020-21, scoring seven times in the league and tallying eight assists.
The 22-year-old has proved a perfect fit at wing-back in coach Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 formation as he helped Inter win the title for the first time since 2009-10, but the club’s financial troubles became apparent after the season, with Conte departing after learning some of his stars may have to be sold.
Hakimi is named in Y! Africa’s Most Inspiring Youth on the Continent – Africa 500.
