Real Madrid has been home to some serious wonderkids in the past and present. The likes of Vinicius Junior, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo all spring to mind. However, there are a select group of former Real Madrid youngsters who actually achieved their stardom elsewhere.

One of those is Achraf Hakimi. The defender came through the youth ranks in Madrid after being born in the city. He spent three years in the first team, but didn't make many appearances and spent a chunk of that time out on loan to Borussia Dortmund. Since leaving Real Madrid in 2020, Hakimi has achieved stardom at Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.

Recently, Real Madrid were linked with a move for Achraf Hakimi. This is because Carlo Ancelotti is cautious about his ageing defence and would like to invest in the area to secure the future health of the club. However, they are due to face competition from Manchester City, who are dabbling in the market for similar reasons to Madrid.

That said, Real Madrid have been given a serious boost and encouragement from none other than Hakimi himself. According to a report by Mundo Deportivo, Achraf Hakimi is aware of the interest by his former club Real Madrid and he would be open to a move back to the footballing capital.

The severity of Real Madrid's interest remains to be seen. It would be great to see Hakimi get his long-awaited return to Madrid but this will depend on how hard Carlo Ancelotti pushes.

Furthermore, it will be interesting to see how the Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid saga shapes this deal. After all, Real Madrid have been in intense negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain a lot over the past few years, which could shape how the conversation goes for Achraf Hakimi - For better or for worse.
