Real to sign young Monaco talent!

According to the Spanish newspaper Marca, Real Madrid wants to sign Monaco midfielder Aurélien Tchouameni! The approximate sum of the transfer is about 70 million euros.

Real Madrid's main target for this transfer window was PSG star forward Kylian Mbappe. But last Saturday, the 23-year-old Frenchman extended his contract with the Parisian giants on very favorable terms and disrupted Blancos' plans. Even earlier, the Norwegian Erling Haaland eluded them, who preferred to go to Pep Guardiola in Manchester City.

Since the purchase of the next “galactico” has failed, Real Madrid will go the other way. They will again invite a young and promising talent into their ranks for the money that was intended for the transfer of Mbappe. The choice of Los Blancos management fell on the 22-year-old central midfielder of Monaco, Aurélien Tchouameni. In three years in the Principality, the young talent made 95 appearances and scored 8 goals. The statistics are modest, but it is worth considering that the Frenchman plays in the support zone and aims more at destruction than at creation. The truth is, the discipline of the young player is not all right. In this French league, he got 11 yellow and one red card, and in the previous one - 9+1.

Tchouameni himself will move to the Santiago Bernabeu with great joy. Here he has a dream club, and a noticeable salary increase, and a guarantee of appearances in the Champions League, and the opportunity to win trophies. Aurelien could have played in the most prestigious European competition at Monaco, but a 2-2 draw with Lens in the last round of Ligue 1 pushed the Red-Whites to third place and deprived them of a direct entry into the Champions League group. It is not surprising that the midfielder thought about changing his place of work.

We think the purchase of Tchouameni will be good for Real Madrid. Nevertheless, the main midfielders of Los Blancos have already passed the peak of development and are close to the end of their careers. Modric is 36 years old, Kroos is 32 and Casemiro is 30. When the legends are gone, Los Blancos will be left with 19-year-old Camavinga and 23-year-old Valverde. With such a line-up of performers, it is difficult to think of high-profile trophies. Aurélien will definitely strengthen the central axis of the Madrid giants, which have recently learned how to develop young talents like him. Vinicius Junior, Rodrigo, the same Valverde - in a couple of years, these performers have gone from little-known to some of the best in the world. If Tchouameni joins them, he will have a chance to make a serious mark on world football.
