Having decided to end their pursuit of Jude Bellingham, Liverpool are set to rekindle their interest in Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni in the summer, reports David Maddock of the Mirror.

Liverpool are in the market for reinforcements in the middle of the park and had been chasing Bellingham for the longest time. But, earlier this week, reports emerged that they had decided to end their interest in the Englishman due to his inflated price.

While they are looking for alternatives for Bellingham, Liverpool now could also attempt to sign Real Madrid midfielder Tchouameni in the summer to strengthen their options in the defensive midfield role.

It is no secret that the Reds were very interested in signing Tchouameni from AS Monaco last summer. In fact, the report adds that Liverpool had even made an offer worth £75 million (€85 million) for the French enforcer.

However, they were outbid by Real Madrid while the midfielder’s desire to play at the Santiago Bernabeu played against them. In the end, Los Blancos signed Tchouameni in a deal worth €100 million (including add-ons).

The 23-year-old soon settled in at Real Madrid and ensured that Casemiro’s departure to Manchester United was not felt. However, his form has dipped in the second half of the season after the World Cup in Qatar.

Indeed, Tchouameni has fallen behind compatriot Eduardo Camavinga in the pecking order of late. And Liverpool could look to capitalise on it by attempting another move to sign Tchouameni in the summer.

The report adds that it could take at least €100 million (£90 million) for Real Madrid to consider any possibility of parting ways with Tchouameni.

But, it is unlikely that Real Madrid would be open to any sort of operation involving Tchouameni, who is earmarked as a key part of the midfield unit for the future. He still has over five years left on his contract and a move seems impossible as things stand.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
