With Real Madrid set for a summer of revolution, especially in the attacking unit, Chelsea ace Kai Havertz has been identified as one of the priority targets by the Spanish heavyweights.

Both Carlo Ancelotti and club president Florentino Perez are understood to be keen on landing the German international to reinforce the frontline at the Santiago Bernabeu following the confirmed exits of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, and Mariano Diaz.

And, now, Real Madrid have learnt how much they will need to shell out in order to sign Havertz. Indeed, according to Evening Standard’s Nizaar Kinsella, Chelsea will demand a transfer fee of £75 million (€87 million) for the Merengues’ top target this summer.

Chelsea signed Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2020 by splashing a sum of £75.8 million. And they are now understood to be keen on recouping the entire amount from Real Madrid if they sell the German attacker.

Discussions have already taken place between Los Blancos and Havertz’s representatives about a possible transfer. And the 23-year-old is believed to be keen on making the switch to the Spanish capital before the start of the next season.

A move will now hinge on whether Real Madrid are prepared to meet Chelsea’s £75 million asking price for Havertz.

It must be noted that the Merengues are already spending around €100 million on Jude Bellingham’s signing while they are also interested in Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane, who could also cost in excess of €100 million.

With a move for Alphonso Davies also understood to be on the agenda, whether Real Madrid will be ready to spend £75 million for Havertz remains to be seen.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
