Real Madrid are engrossed in a transformative rebuilding phase as the club are set to enter the summer transfer market with several positions to plug. With the dawn of this fresh chapter, Madrid stand at the threshold of endless possibilities and potential.
As reported by Jose Felix Diaz, Los Blancos are determined to oversee a new cycle this summer. This news comes on the back of an array of departures and a squad that has dwindled excessively.
After the departures of Benzema, Hazard, Asensio, and Mariano, Real Madrid are reportedly saving over €80 million euros in salaries. The financial freedom engendered by all these exits enable Fiorentino Perez to begin searching for adequate replacements.
While a great deal of deadwood has been cleared and further exits are expected, Benzema’s departure to Saudi Arabia comes as the biggest trial for Madrid, considering the Frenchman’s incredible importance for the club and how he proved to be one of the major forces spearheading the front line after Cristiano’s departure.
In such a context, MARCA report that a revolution is expected to take place in the Spanish capital, one which likely foresees an abundance of players being acquired over the summer.
Madrid have already advanced in their pursuit of Dortmund’s star boy, Jude Bellingham. Even so, apart from midfield reinforcements, the attack appears to have turned into a barren department, which is where most of the focus will be diverted in the coming weeks.
As of today, Real Madrid’s attack only comprises Vinicius and Rodrygo, two wingers with enormous talent, but in dire need of central compatriots to play off.
Real Madrid are reportedly keen on signing up to four players in attack this summer as they attempt to make up for all these sudden departures. Links with the likes of Harry Kane, Joselu, Brahim, and Kai Havertz have intensified over the past few days.
French midfielder admits considering PSG move before Real Madrid called him
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.
