Reports indicate that Aurelien Tchouameni is very close to signing a five-year contract to play for Real Madrid, which has forced Liverpool to hunt for a replacement
A deal to bring Aurelien Tchouameni to Real Madrid for €80 million and a five-year agreement is reportedly close to being finalized, as reported by ESPN. Tchouameni is reportedly ready to sign the contract with Los Blancos. The midfielder, who now plays for AS Monaco, is attracting attention from Liverpool. They are considering making a bid for him during the summer transfer window.
This coming weekend will see the conclusion of the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid and Liverpool going head to head. But even after their match at the Stade de France is over, the two European heavyweights may not be done competing against one another in the market for quite some time. The two teams have recently aligned their pursuits on one player, Aurelien Tchouameni.
What’s the news?
The French national team member has established himself as one of the premier midfielders in Ligue 1 after joining Stade Louis II in January of 2020. He has gone from strength to strength since making the move. In the last two and a half years, the 22-year-old player has appeared 95 times for the Ligue 1 club. He has also established himself as a regular member of the French national team. And with Real Madrid and Liverpool reportedly interested in acquiring his services, Tchouameni may be about to embark on a new journey this summer.
Recent rumors stated that Liverpool had surpassed Real Madrid in the competition to sign Tchouameni. Liverpool is looking to acquire a long-term replacement for James Milner. Thus they are showing interest in acquiring a player like Tchouameni. In contrast, the fact that Kylian Mbappe has chosen to stay with Paris Saint-Germain over the Spanish powerhouses has moved the balances in their favor over the course of the previous week.
Real Madrid resumed negotiations to sign Tchouameni shortly after the news of Mbappe’s unexpected choice of contract renewal. The swift work done by the Merengues has reportedly put them in a better position than Liverpool. This information comes from ESPN.
Will Los Blancos get Tchouameni?
Tchouameni is looking to sign a five-year agreement with Los Blancos. There is a possibility that he may end up becoming Real Madrid’s long-term replacement for Casemiro. As a result, Real Madrid will most likely strike an agreement with AS Monaco about the transfer of the player for the sum of €80 million. This would force Liverpool to search for other options in the market.
It will be intriguing to see whether Real Madrid can swiftly finalize the €80 million agreement to get the services of Tchouameni or if the Reds still have an ace up their sleeves. If Real Madrid can quickly finalize the transaction, it would be interesting. The Spanish giants are now in the lead in the competition to sign the 22-year-old player this summer.
