22-year-old midfielder wants to join Real Madrid, club still unsure about the transfer



The 2021/22 campaign has been a successful one for Real Madrid, with the Merengues already winning the La Liga title and the Spanish Supercup, while they can still lift the UEFA Champions League trophy as well.

But, despite the success, it goes without saying that investment will be needed in the squad over the summer to maintain this level of consistency over an extended period.

Antonio Rudiger is all set to arrive on a free transfer to strengthen the defence, while Kylian Mbappe could also join on a Bosman deal to bolster the frontline. As for the midfield department, Los Blancos have enough depth and quality, but a new face could be added nevertheless.

The name of AS Monaco ace Aurelien Tchouameni has been doing the rounds for quite some time now. The 22-year-old Frenchman has established himself as one of the best central midfielders in France over the past couple of years.

Tchouameni is primed to leave the Ligue 1 outfit in the upcoming summer, with Real Madrid and several other clubs touted as potential destinations.

And now, speaking on his YouTube channel, journalist Ramon Alvarez de Mon has claimed that the former Bordeaux midfielder wants to join Real Madrid in the next transfer window.

However, he goes on to claim that while Los Blancos are interested, they are yet to make a decision on signing Tchouameni, with the transfer on standby as things stand.

Tchouameni showed his quality in Monaco’s recent game against LOSC Lille, scoring a brace to help his team to a 2-1 victory. While he has proven himself to be an adept performer in the box-to-box role, the 22-year-old can also play as a holding midfielder.

His acquisition would fetch Real Madrid an alternative and a long-term replacement for Casemiro. However, as things stand, the Merengues are still undecided about the move. It remains to be seen if their stance changes in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid’s 29-year-old star upset with his situation, desires more clarity on role

At Real Madrid, the quest for securing a spot in the first-team lineup involves battling it out with some of the best players in European football.

Competition is generally considered the perfect antidote to complacency and the Merengues‘ immensely talented roster encapsulates that sentiment best.

While injuries have done a number on the team, there is still an abundance of competition in the squad. As of now, the fight for a spot in the starting lineup is most intense among the goalkeepers.

Indeed, since the beginning of the campaign, there has been no fixed goalkeeper with both Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga featuring between the sticks alternately.

However, after being acquired on a season-long loan to fill in the absence of Thibaut Courtois, Kepa is not entirely content with his situation.

Kepa unsatisfied with the unclarity

Indeed, as per The Athletic, Kepa is extremely disappointed with his situation and how the coaching staff at Real Madrid have been handling the matter.

Ancelotti has not clearly explained his reasoning as to which of Lunin and Kepa is currently his first-choice keeper.

And according to sources close to him, Kepa is unhappy and would have preferred further clarification on the matter from the manager.

Owing to Lunin’s exceptional form lately, he has successfully displaced Kepa as the first-choice goalkeeper.

In fact, Kepa has not started a game since Real Madrid’s clash against Almeria last month in which they leaked two goals.

It is safe to assume Kepa’s frustrations stem from the fact that he initially arrived as the primary keeper to replace Courtois and turned down an offer from Bayern Munich to join the Madrid outfit.

As such, being shunned and having minimal clarity from the coaching staff’s preferred goalkeeper has led to dissatisfaction.

As things stand, Real Madrid have no plans of signing him permanently, given that Chelsea would ask around €20 million for him, something that the club have intentions of paying.
