There has been a lot of chatter surrounding the future of Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni this summer after the youngster lost his place in the starting XI in the second half of the last season.

Clubs from the Premier League are said to be sniffing around his situation even though reports suggest that the Merengues do not wish to offload the 23-year-old defensive midfielder.

Amidst the interest from England, fresh reports from journalists Philipp Kessler and Manuel Bonke of TZ (h/t iMiaSanMia) are claiming that Tchouameni also has admirers within the Bayern Munich offices.

Indeed, the report states that Bayern Munich officials ‘internally appreciate the French international, whose current market value stands at €85 million.

However, the Bavarian giants have made no contact with the player or Real Madrid over a transfer as a transfer is considered unrealistic due to the fees that could be involved in any operation.

Tchouameni joined Real Madrid only last summer, arriving from AS Monaco in a deal that could reach €100 million including add-ons.

The 23-year-old started brilliantly, stepping into the giant shoes left vacant by Casemiro and soon became a mainstay in Carlo Ancelotti’s midfield.

However, his game-time took a hit in the second half of the campaign after the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, with his form and fitness both taking a hit.

Despite that, though, Real Madrid have no desire in selling Tchouameni this summer. In fact, the 23-year-old is expected to be Ancelotti’s starting option for the defensive midfield position for the upcoming season.

Having made 50 appearances in his debut season with Real Madrid, in which he contributed with four assists, Tchouameni will be hoping to nail down his spot in the starting XI in the upcoming campaign.

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
