Chelsea disappointedly lost out in race to sign the former Real Madrid man with his agent stating unbelievable reason why his client turned down the move to Stamford Bridge
The Moroccan decided to head to Paris Saint German at the expense of Chelsea who were also chasing strongly after his signature.
Achraf Hakimi was indeed a talented wing back that fits the requirements of the type of player Tuchel wants but despite Chelsea really opening and submitting bids, he decided to join PSG.
The Parisians completed €60m move for the defender who will now stay with them until the next 5-years when his contract will expire.
But according to his agent, it’s actually funny when one learns the main reason that put Hakimi off the talks of joining his country man, Hakim Ziyech in West London.

Chelsea are the current European Champions and definitely the dream club for many but not all, including Hakimi who fears he may flop if he joined Chelsea.
Following the agents comments, high hopes and pressures would be at players in Chelsea ahead of the new season and they are expected to deliver top quality in defending the UCL trophy.
“Chelsea also bid for Achraf. The fact that they are champions of Europe perhaps threw him back.”
Chelsea are relying on their available talents after Thomas Tuchel disclosed he will only now make transfer decisions after evaluating the available players in the pre-season.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is one of the players who are doing well already in this role, even defensively and his attacking role.
The English man is keen to maintain his spot ahead of the new season by impressing the Manager before the start of the new season.
