Achraf has scored three times and set up another 10 goals in 25 Bundesliga matches in 2019-20, making him one of the league's most productive creators despite being a defender.

Prior to joining Dortmund on a temporary deal, Achraf made nine La Liga appearances for Madrid during the 2017-18 season and showed promise.

"There is no basis at all [for such stories]," Achraf's agent Alejandro Camano told Goal/SPOX. "His contract at Real Madrid is still the same one we negotiated in 2017, which runs until 2022.

Dani Carvajal has been Madrid's first-choice option at right-back this term, making 22 La Liga appearances. The club's depth in that position is otherwise limited, while Achraf can also fill in at left-back.
