Real Madrid is allegedly stepping up their attempts to recruit AS Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni. According to a report by the Spanish publication Defensa Central, Aurelien Tchouameni seems to be emerging as a prominent target for Real Madrid in the next summer transfer window. The Spanish giants have sent Juni Calafat, their head of international football, to Monaco to begin discussions over a prospective transfer for the Frenchman.
In the two years after joining AS Monaco from Bordeaux in January 2020, Aurelien Tchouameni has developed into one of the most talented midfielders in Ligue 1. The 22-year-old has established himself as a staple in midfield for the Ligue 1 club. The player has grown over the previous two seasons. He has also earned a call-up to the French national team during that time.
He was a key member of France’s UEFA Nations League success last year. This has helped to raise his profile even further in the country. At this point in his career, Tchouameni has made 76 appearances for Monaco, with 31 of them coming during the current season. Despite his inexperience, the player’s achievements have not gone unnoticed. Real Madrid is one team that has an interest in bringing him to the Spanish capital.
This piqued Real Madrid’s attention, which may be attributed to the uncertainty surrounding the futures of Isco and Dani Ceballos. Both of them are expected to leave Santiago Bernabeu during the summer transfer window. Because Real Madrid does not have a natural replacement for Casemiro, the arrival of Tchouameni will be a step in the right way for Carlo Ancelotti and his team.
Real Madrid has already begun discussions with Aurelien Tchouameni
As a result, the Spanish giants have stepped up their attempts to obtain the services of the 22-year-old. They have already begun discussions about a potential summer transfer for him. Juni Calafat, the head of Real Madrid’s international football was recently in Monaco. He wanted to begin conversations about a possible transfer of the player. He spoke with the player’s agent, Jonathan Kebe.
Calafat brought in brilliant Brazilian youths like Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo Goes. He also brought in other valuable prospects around Europe. Calafat was vital in getting Ferland Mendy to Real Madrid. Tchouameni has now emerged as a top target for the Spanish giants.
However, Real Madrid would have to spend a lot of money to recruit the 22-year-old. AS Monaco expected to seek over €60m for his services. Along with preparing an offer in the neighbourhood of €60m for the UEFA Nations League champion, Real Madrid will have to contend with an array of other suitors. Chelsea wants to bring him to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
