According to him, the agreement to sign Hakimi, who is now on loan at Dortmund from Real Madrid, is going to be finalized soon between Inter and the Los Blancos for €40million.

The Inter manager, Antonio Conte, is a big admirer of Hakimi and Inter are confident of securing the deal. His loan contract with the German club will end on June 30, while his contract with Real Madrid is set to run until 2022.

Hakimi, 21, has drawn reported interest from Inter Milan and could be sold for around 40 million euros ($45 million) after an impressive past season with Dortmund.

Hakimi is on his way to Inter in a €45m deal, and Gianluca Di Marzio reports the transfer will be finalised today, with only how the €40m up front and €5m in bonuses will be paid left to negotiate.

And, in a move that could potentially be followed by other countries, India have banned 59 Chinese apps including the likes of Tik Tok.

Hakimi, who only made nine appearances for Los Blancos before his loan move to Germany, has become a fan favourite in his two seasons with the Schwarzgelben, scoring seven goals in 53 Bundesliga appearances.

However, Dortmund confirmed on Saturday that Hakimi would not be staying on permanently, with Thomas Meunier having already been brought in to bolster Lucien Favre's options at right-back.

After joining Real Madrid at eight years old and performing in youth categories, he was finally promoted to the main squad with which he played his first game against RCD Espanyol in October 2017.
