Real Madrid are preparing for a revolutionary summer this transfer market after losing several players already. Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard announced their departure from the club on the same day.

However, this was followed by the big one as Karim Benzema also decided to join Al-Ittihad on a free transfer on one of the biggest contracts in football history.

With four forwards, including their captain, gone, Madrid are in the market looking for a striker. They have been linked with several names so far, and it seems more names will join this transfer list.

According to Florian Plettenburg (h/t Madrid Universal), Romelu Lukaku could be offered to Madrid this summer transfer window.

Currently on loan at Inter Milan, Lukaku is expected to return to Chelsea in the summer, where his future is still in doubt. The Belgian played his last match for the Serie A giants yesterday in the Champions League final, losing 1-0 against Manchester City.

His return tenure with Inter has been promising over the second part of the season, though. With ten goals and six assists in 25 league appearances, he had the second-highest goal contributions for the club after Lautaro Martinez.

Madrid are also exploring other options in the market, with their eyes set on Harry Kane as their number one priority. His price tag, though, is set at upwards of €100 million, and that is if Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy allows offers.

They have also been linked with Roberto Firmino as well, but the Brazilian will not be their first-choice option in attack should the transfer go through. Joselu of Espanyol is also close to joining the club.

Apart from this, they have completed the signings of Fran Garcia from Rayo Vallecano and brought back Brahim Diaz from AC Milan after his two-year loan tenure.

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.
