Manchester City had a fantastic season, where they won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League, enhancing the image of Pep Guardiola, who broke the curse of not being able to win an international tournament for more than a decade. Now, with his mind set on continuing to be the king of Europe, the Spaniard is following in the footsteps of a partner of Kylian Mbappé at PSG.

The Iberian coach does not neglect any detail and is already thinking about what the next season will be like. In the middle of vacations, from Spain it is mentioned that Guardiola is closely following a new right-back, because Kyle Walker would leave for the interest of Bayern Munich and that Joao Cancelo does not enter into the plans of the 'citizens'.

In this context, 'Marca' revealed that Guardiola is seriously interested in Achraf Hakimi, a Moroccan defender who is Kylian Mbappé's best friend at PSG. The player, with a past at Real Madrid, caught Guardiola's attention, although his departure from the French team looks complicated. Hakimi has a contract with the Ligue 1 champion until 2026 and his future would continue to be in Paris.

How much does Hakimi currently cost?

The 24-year-old element has a market value of 70 million euros, according to the specialized portal 'Transfermarkt'. At the World Cup in Qatar, he was key for Morocco to make history and get to the semifinals of the tournament.
