With every passing day, Aurelien Tchouameni seems to be getting closer and closer to being announced as Real Madrid’s latest signing. One cannot think of too many other instances when negotiations over a transfer moved with such speed.

According to reports from Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato, Real Madrid and AS Monaco are close to reaching a total agreement over the player’s move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Los Blancos already have a verbal agreement in place with the youngster, and the successful negotiations with his team mean that the official announcement could be just days away.

Yesterday, Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga was asked about the possibility of his compatriot joining him at the club level. The French international replied in the positive and said that he had spoken with Tchouameni.

“I hope Tchouaméni is coming to Madrid, I’ve already spoken to him. Let’s see what happens in the next few days.”

Tchouaméni has reportedly told his teammates days ago about his decision and priority to join Real Madrid. His determination to don white has effectively ruled out top European sides like Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain from the race to sign him.

The transfer fee is speculated to be in the €80 million ballpark with bonuses and add-ons excluded. The massive price tag could put a lot of pressure on the midfielder, and it remains to be seen if Ancelotti uses him as a starter or off the bench next season.

Tchouameni is one of the world’s most promising talents in defensive midfield and the statistics back him. He averages three interceptions, 2.5 tackles, a clearance and seven duels won per ninety minutes.

Moreover, his ability to play as both a single and a double pivot makes him a versatile addition to Ancelotti’s arsenal.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
