Real Madrid are set to sign Aurelien Tchouameni. But the courted man himself now makes you sit up and take notice.

Real Madrid’s dream player Aurelien Tchouameni says he has “not yet” decided whether he wants to play for Los Blancos next season. That’s what the 22-year-old from AS Monaco said in an interview with Telefoot.

According to information from GOAL and SPOX, the Champions League winner from the Spanish capital is about to free Tchouameni from the principality for a transfer fee of up to 100 million euros. The talks are currently in the final stages, and from Real’s point of view, a conclusion should be reached as soon as possible.

Aurelien Tchouameni: It was also PSG’s turn

The man being courted appears unimpressed by the speculation about his person. “It doesn’t worry me, I always wanted to be in that position,” he clarified. “As long as the best clubs are watching me, it means I’m doing certain things right.”

Paris Saint-Germain were also interested in signing Tchouameni, the French champions wanted to straddle at the last moment and Real mess the soup. This would have had a special touch against the background of the saga of Kylian Mbappe, who decided against Madrid and for Paris at the last moment.
