PSG is apparently willing to spend €100 million to sign Aurelien Tchouameni, and Real Madrid might face a hijacking in the race to recruit him.
Real Madrid’s ambitions of signing Aurelien Tchouameni in the summer transfer window may be jeopardized, according to a report from Spanish site Defensa Central. In the hunt to sign the French international midfielder, the Merengues will face heavy competition from Paris Saint-Germain, who are willing to pay €100 million for him.
Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have formed a savage rivalry over the signing of Kylian Mbappe by Los Blancos. Last year, the two giants’ relationship deteriorated as Real Madrid attempted to entice the Frenchman away from PSG by paying a nine-figure payment.
The issue has exacerbated as a result of Mbappe’s unexpected decision to extend his stay at PSG beyond the summer transfer window by signing a new contract rather than joining Real Madrid on a Bosman deal. The two powerful teams are currently competing for numerous highly sought-after players in the transfer market.
Real Madrid and PSG are battling it out for Sadio Mane, while Aurelien Tchouameni, a hot property on the market after two good seasons at AS Monaco, is also a target. Les Parisiens might try to beat Real Madrid to the French midfielder by paying a larger fee in the summer transfer window.
According to recent rumours, the Spanish giants are close to completing a €100 million deal for Tchouameni. Real Madrid’s excitement originates from the fact that Casemiro, Toni Kroos, and Luka Modric, their first-choice midfield trio, are becoming older. And the French international possesses the necessary characteristics to succeed Casemiro in the long run.
Meanwhile, owing to the inconsistency of players like Georginio Wijnaldum, Ander Herrera, and Danilo Pereira this season, PSG will need to invest in a top-class midfielder. The three midfielders are all over 30, making Tchouameni an attractive target for PSG, who are willing to spend €100 million for the French international.
Tchouameni is apparently willing to sign a five-year agreement with the Merengues, despite the fact that the Ligue 1 heavyweights are prepared to hijack Real Madrid’s chase by paying €100 million ahead. So far, the transfer drama is shaping up beautifully, and it will be intriguing to see where Tchouameni ends up once he leaves AS Monaco this summer.
