Aurelien Tchouameni has the world at his feet right now, with the top elite clubs in the world interested in his services. The two clubs leading the race right now are the 2022 Champions League finalists Real Madrid and Liverpool.

According to reports from Sky Sports, Chelsea too are interested in the defensive midfielder. However, the general understanding is that the player will join Los Blancos in June and snub a move to the Premier League.

Earlier this week, the youngster spoke to Mundo Deportivo and hinted at the clubs in the race for his signature. He said,

“I like the Spanish games and the English ones. It’s different playing in Spain or England. But in the end for me it’s just a question of adaptation. I am an ambitious person,” Tchouameni said.

“Every time I do something I just want to win. If I want to be great, I have to adapt in order to gain some things that allow me to grow as a player.”

Tchouameni has established himself as a regular starter under Philippe Clement, starting 33 league games for AS Monaco at the tender age of 22. In the process, he has scored three goals and provided two assists.

The defensive quality that the Frenchman produces is immense and is what makes him so highly sought after in the transfer market. He averages a whopping three interceptions, 2.5 tackles, 7.5 duels won and a clearance per ninety minutes.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Los Blancos had reached an agreement over his move to the Santiago Bernabeu for a fee of €80 million. While the fee seems to be excessive, Kylian Mbappe’s cancelled transfer makes way for such a signing.

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.
