When it comes to the transfer market, Bayern Munich are simply one of the best in the business.
Bayern Munich are linked with surprise move for Real Madrid right-back Achraf Hakimi, according to the football transfer rumours in Spanish media.
The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
In July 2018, Hakimi was sent to Borussia Dortmund on a loan.
In 55 appearances for BVB, Achraf Hakimi has managed to score 9 goals, and create 13 goals for his teammates.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Morocco. As a member of Morocco national football team, Hakimi won 28 caps and he scored 2 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich have built a reputation for recruiting young talent, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
The report claims that Bayern Munich manager has extensively scouted Hakimi and is considering a move for the right-back.
Achraf Hakimi would provide a good variety to Bayern Munich’s defense.
According to the report, “Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have reportedly entered the race to sign Real Madrid defender Achraf Hakimi. The 21-year old has established himself as a key player on loan at Borussia Dortmund in the last two seasons, and Zinedine Zidane is reportedly keen to bring him back to the Santiago Bernabeu when his deal expires at Signal Iduna Park in July. Lucien Favre also wants to keep him at Dortmund, and they are set to offer €30M for him at the end of the season. The Moroccan international has previously stated that he is undecided on his future, with his ‘heart divided between Dortmund or Madrid’, with a final decision set to be made at the end of the season. However, according to reports in German newspaper Bild, via Mundo Deportivo, the Bavarian side are set to rival Dortmund for Hakimi with an improved €45M bid in the summer as they look to solve their issues at full back. But the Bundesliga pair are not the only sides set to test Real Madrid’s resolve over Hakimi, with Chelsea and Juventus also reported to be monitoring his situation.”

Real Madrid are reluctant to let Hakimi go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
The 21-year-old would be a very good addition for Bayern and they can afford him as well.
Bayern fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
How strong that interest is and whether Bayern will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
