Earlier today, reports emerged from Germany claiming that Bayern Munich had set their sights on a summer move for Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

It was suggested that the 23-year-old is at the top of the wishlist of the Bavarians’ manager Thomas Tuchel, who is keen on signing a new defensive midfielder this summer.

Furthermore, the report even claimed that there had already been some contact between Bayern Munich and Tchouameni regarding a potential transfer.

However, a fresh update from BILD’s Tobi Altschaffl has now claimed that while Tuchel rates the Real Madrid star highly, there is no contact between any of the parties involved at this moment.

Bayern Munich know that Real Madrid do not want to sell Tchouameni at this moment.

On top of that, signing him this summer would be a challenge for the Bundesliga champions as they have spent €50 million to land Kim Min-jae and will be splashing a big sum to bring in Harry Kane as well.

Tchouameni joined Real Madrid only last summer, arriving from AS Monaco in a deal that could reach €100 million. The 23-year-old made a brilliant start to life in the Spanish capital, straight away slotting into the team in place of Casemiro.

However, the midfielder’s form took a nosedive in the second half of the campaign, prompting Carlo Ancelotti to axe him from the lineup.

It has led to rumours about his future sparking up, but as things stand, Los Blancos continue to count on the French international, with the manager retaining full faith in the player.

In fact, it has been suggested that Tchouameni will be a regular starter for Real Madrid in the upcoming campaign despite the competition in midfield.

There is still a lot of time left in the transfer window, but Bayern Munich’s reported interest in Tchouameni is unlikely to lead to something.

Real Madrid rising star suffered against Atletico due to veteran forward’s absence, says Simeone

Real Madrid’s 3-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid was not the first time were in trouble this season. In fact, the Merengues have gone behind early in almost every league game so far.

However, the difference on Sunday night was that they never really mounted a comeback. More importantly, Jude Bellingham did not come good, for the first time.

Simeone unravels the mystery

A jubilant Diego Simeone spoke to the media after his side downed Real Madrid by three goals to one and spoke about a plethora of topics. 

Interestingly, he commented specifically on why Bellingham did not have an impact at Civitas Metropolitano, citing the absence of Joselu as a key factor.

“No, the spaces were reduced and I think that Joselu’s lack of presence left him with fewer chances to get there, when he takes advantage of Joselu’s aerial play. We controlled him better, he’s extraordinary,” he said, as quoted by AS.

He even called out the refereeing on the night and insisted that the Real Madrid star-boy should have seen red for his late tackle on Angel Correa, saying:

“It looked like a sending-off to me live, it was a hard leg up, with Angelito hitting the ball.”

Ironically, he defended his defender Jose Maria Gimenez for an equally threatening tackle on the night.

“A bad foul, it’s a yellow card because it goes sideways. Bellingham goes from the front and I think it’s a bit more,” he stated paradoxically.

No time to lament

The game at Civitas Metropolitano may not have gone Real Madrid’s way. Yet, it is good for the Merengues to taste defeat early and see the gaping holes in their dynamic.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted in his press conference that he bore the lion’s share of the fault for Sunday’s loss and that he would have done things differently if given the chance.

“Maybe I could have done it better. It’s pretty clear. When the team doesn’t do what it has to do, it’s my responsibility,” he stated.

Nevertheless, Los Blancos have a hectic schedule ahead with two games in the next five days and a UCL fixture against Napoli next week. With Vinicius Jr back, one hopes they find their mojo once again.
