The financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on football remains unknown, although it is expected to be massive, even in comparison with other sectors of the world economy. The impact will be felt at all levels, and even those clubs at the top whose livelihoods are not threatened will feel it in the transfer market.

Clubs, agents, and the players themselves will be well advised to dampen their expectations of financial gains this summer. And that includes one Achraf Hakimi, who’s currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid.
