- Man City want Hakimi from PSG
- Eye him as replacement for Walker
- Hakimi's contract expires in 2026
WHAT HAPPENED? City are looking to further strengthen their squad after winning the treble of the Champions League, the Premier League, and the FA Cup last season. The Citizens are set to approach Paris Saint-Germain over the availability of Hakimi who could replace Kyle Walker in their squad, according to Marca.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Walker did not start for Manchester City in the Champions League final against Inter. He was recently linked with a move away from the club as Bayern Munich showed interest in the English international, but the player apparently wants to stay at City and is willing to extend his contract.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Hakimi's current contract with PSG expires in June 2026 which could make things difficult for the Premier League side. Manchester City wanted to sign Hakimi a couple of years back when he was still at Borussia Dortmund but a deal did not materialise and he later joined the Ligue 1 giants in 2021.
