Aurelien Tchouameni is enduring a difficult phase at Real Madrid lately. Since the end of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the midfielder has fallen out of favour, struggling with form and falling behind in the pecking order.

The Frenchman has also been constantly omitted from the starting eleven in crucial matches, which has reflected badly on the player’s overall outlook.

However, Carlo Ancelotti is not willing to lose any hope and continues to work with the midfielder, in an attempt to maximise his output. He still trusts the youngster to get out of his rough patch and once again become a crucial element in the Real Madrid midfield, reports Diario AS.

Together with the coaching staff, Tchouameni is working every day to maximise his skills and make himself better in possession. He did put up an excellent display in the recent win over Almeria, with many hoping that he can continue his form.

Apart from showing excellent commitment, Tchouameni has been polishing his mistake too. He has been heeding Ancelotti’s advice, who in turn, believes the youngster has ‘enormous’ potential.

Although the prolonged stay of veterans Luka Modric and Toni Kroos will once again affect Tchouameni’s role next season, Ancelotti believes he has what it takes to become an asset for the club.

The Italian mastermind, who is likely to continue at Santiago Bernabeu owing to his excellent relationship with Florentino Perez, could play a critical role behind Tchouameni’s potential revival.

But for the time being, the player must focus on his performance. With just a few games remaining until the end of the season, there is hope Ancelotti will favour Tchouameni for the league games. If he can make an impression in La Liga, there is every possibility he could entrusted to feature in the crucial cup games.

France set for major boost as Real Madrid midfielder closes in on a return

After a long wait, the European Championship is finally underway, with one of the tournament’s favourites Germany opening the competition with an emphatic 5-1 win over Scotland.

Another favourite to win the Euro 2024 is France, who will be in action on Monday as they take on Austria. One of the talking points heading into this game is the fitness of Real Madrid superstar, Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman had picked up an injury late into the 2023/24 campaign, which notably saw him miss the UEFA Champions League final. It was thought that the midfielder would miss a chunk of the Euros as well.

Tchouameni available for France’s group stage games

However, it appears Tchouameni has made a remarkable recovery and could be in contention to feature in France’s group-stage matches.

That is according to AS, which suggests that coach Didier Deschamps is counting on the midfielder to become available sooner rather than later.

Although Tchouameni has been ruled out for France’s opening game against Austria, the player is hoping to feature in the two remaining group matches against Poland and the Netherlands.

Up until this point, Tchouameni completed individual training sessions with France’s physical trainer. But recently, he was able to join the team’s training session ahead of the Austria game.

Tchouameni’s return could serve as a massive boost for France. Even though Les Bleus already have a stacked midfield unit, coach Deschamps is a huge admirer of Tchouameni and had backed him to get fit the moment he picked up an injury.

Deschamps, after all, did not opt to replace the Real Madrid star with another player.

France, of course, will have to proceed with caution, knowing the youngster has just recovered from his injury. But they can be hopeful of the player taking part as the tournament progresses.
