Real Madrid have officially announced the signing of Aurelian Tchouameni for €80 million plus €20 million in variables on a deal that will last six seasons.

The player was linked with a move away from AS Monaco for a few months running now, with Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain linked as well. However, Tchouameni chose to don the pearly whites of Madrid over the two.

The Frenchman will be presented in front of the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday, June 14th after the corresponding medical examination.

Tchouameni enjoyed quite the season with Monaco this time around, contributing both as a defensive and central midfielder. Over the course of 35 games in the domestic league, he found the back of the net thrice while setting up two others.

Florentino Perez has not signed the player for his offensive capabilities, though. With Casemiro hitting the last juncture of his career, Tchouameni is expected to fill in at defensive midfielder, forming the third part of what could be a historic midfield trio alongside Federico Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
