The role of Antonio Conte has also been a major factor in the player selecting Milan as his potential destination with the Inter head coach promising first team football for the 21-year-old next season with Achraf also considering Inter as a club with an ideal profile that suits his professional progression. Neither Real Madrid or Achraf have ruled out a reunion at some point later in the player's career, a possibility that would have been ruled out had he selected other interested candidates Bayern as an option.
