However, Sky Sport Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio has now reported the Moroccan has decided against returning to the Santiago Bernabeu in favour of a move to Inter.

There were reports that Zinedine Zidane wanted Hakimi back this season, while the player himself stated earlier in the season he would open to a return if Los Blancos wanted him.
