Mercato: Real Madrid accelerates for Tchouaméni, its new Casemiro

According to Marca, Real Madrid’s head of recruitment recently traveled to Monaco to chat with Aurélien Tchouaméni’s entourage (22 years), one of the priorities of the Spanish club next summer.

Real Madrid is eyeing France to strengthen next summer. And not only on the PSG side to bring in Kylian Mbappé . A Monaco player has been of particular interest to the Spanish club for many months: Aurélien Tchouaméni (22 years old this Thursday). According to Marca, the head of the club’s observers (scouts) has been in the Principality for two days to discuss with the entourage of the midfielder and inquire about details of the operation.

The former Bordeaux player has taken a new step this season, becoming a French international. He has already accumulated seven selections since September and is very popular with Didier Deschamps. This is also the case of Carlo Ancelotti, manager of Real, who is pushing to bring him in. The Italian manager wants to strengthen his midfield where Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro reign supreme. Always efficient, the first two are aging. Tchouaméni would be seen as an alternative to Casemiro.

At least 60 million euros The club targeted him last summer, he is already on the way for next summer when his value will have increased further. A few months ago, the Spanish press claimed that Tchouaméni would not leave Monaco for less than 60 million euros. Will the price be the same in less than six months? Real will have the ability to act since the club has invested little since 2019 (only 30 million euros spent on Eduardo Camavinga last summer) and hopes to attract Kylian Mbappé, whose contract with PSG expires next summer, for free.
