Well, there is another report linking Bayern Munich to Achraf Hakimi, but his price tag is far too expensive for the Bavarians.

According to a report from Italian journalist Gianluca DiMarzio, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea are the frontrunners to acquire Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi:

Inter has set the price for Achraf Hakimi. The Moroccan is very popular with several European big names and the Nerazzurri need to cash.

There are three teams on the former Borussia Dortmund player: PSG, Bayern Munich and Chelsea, with the French favorites over the Germans and the English. The Nerazzurri management reiterated their no to the 60 million offered, setting the price for Hakimi at at least 80 million (including bonuses).

This situation, with several teams involved, could lead the ‘98 to leave Milan by June 30th.

At €80 million, Hakimi is far too rich for Bayern Munich’s blood.

Regardless, there is another report from French journalist Mohamed Boufasi, which indicates that PSG is progressing in its talks to procure Hakimi:

As announced yesterday, negotiations are progressing well between the #PSG and Inter Milan. The 2 clubs are close to an agreement. PSG have an agreement in principle from Hakimi! Hakimi is convinced by the Parisian project. The 3rd club interested in the player is #Chelsea!

Finally, there was one more report. This one came from Sky Sport Italia, which was captured by Football Italia:

While some reports suggest Achraf Hakimi is on the verge of a transfer to PSG worth €60m, others claim Inter are holding out for €80m with Chelsea and Bayern Munich also interested.

The Scudetto winners need to sell in order to balance the books, and Hakimi is probably the player who could bring in the most cash without massively weakening the squad. He was purchased from Real Madrid for €45m just last summer, and the Gazzetta dello Sport maintain a deal is practically done with Paris Saint-Germain for €60m.

However, Sky Sport Italia warn that wouldn’t be enough and Inter are pushing for closer to €80m, which would almost double the figure paid a year ago. There is also interest from Bayern Munich and Chelsea, which would spark a bidding war.

Per (literally) everything Bayern Munich has stated publicly, there is virtually no shot that the club could afford €60 million or €80 million in the summer transfer window.
