MADRID Ė Real Madrid defender Achraf Hakimi has moved to Borussia Dortmund on loan for the next two seasons, the Spanish club announced Wednesday.
The German side also confirmed the signing of the 19-year-old Morocco defender, who competed with his national team in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
ďAchraf Hakimi is a young, very dynamic full-back who has played at the highest level at Real Madrid and in the Moroccan national team,Ē said Dortmund sporting director, Michael Zorc.
