| Sport Today Headlines | Google News
Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing AS Monaco midfielder Aurelian Tchouameni. The 21-year-old has attracted the interest of a host of Europe’s top clubs after his impressive performances with AS Monaco last season.
According to MARCA, AS Monaco has put a price of 60 million euros on Tchouameni. Real Madrid will be eager to secure the signing of the midfielder as he looks to sign a long-term position for the aging Luka Modric.
Aurelien Tchouameni joined AS Monaco from Bordeaux in January 2020. After enduring a rough start in Monaco, Tchouameni quickly became an integral member of Niko Kovac’s team last season.
The 21-year-old was one of Ligue 1’s rising stars last season, helping AS Monaco secure a top-four result. Tchouameni scored three goals in 42 appearances for AS Monaco. He has also accumulated five appearances for the French national team.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid have enjoyed an impressive start to their 2021-22 La Liga campaign, winning five, drawing two and losing one of their first eight league games this season. Carlo Ancelotti’s team is currently at the top of the table.
The Spanish giants, however, suffered a surprising 2-0 defeat at the hands of the Sheriff in their second match of the Champions League group stage. Real Madrid’s midfield is seen as an area in which the club can improve. Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are approaching the twilight stages of their careers and will need to be replaced in the near future.
Real Madrid signed teenage sensation Eduardo Camavinga on the final day of the summer transfer window in a deal worth € 30 million. Carlo Ancelotti’s team could look to sign Aurelien Tchouameni to add some much-needed pace, physique and tenacity to their midfield.
Real Madrid will have to ditch some of the big winners before making a move for Tchouameni
Despite being interested in Aurelien Tchouameni, Real Madrid will prioritize the signings of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé next summer. However, the club will have to get rid of fringe players and long winners before pursuing its main transfer targets.
Players like Isco, Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard are struggling to make an impact this season and will need to move on before Real Madrid can make a move for Mbappé, Haaland and Tchouameni.
Gareth Bale’s contract will expire at the end of the season, while Isco and Eden Hazard have attracted interest from Serie A and the Premier League, respectively.
