Feelling is PSG
Not many players have the luck to choose two top clubs at once, especially at the level of PSG or Chelsea. Hakimi got the chance, and he chose PSG for obvious reasons.
“I got two offers. One from Chelsea and one from PSG. However, I felt I had to leave for Paris, that I would be happy here,” Hakimi said in Italian Football.
