Even though Real Madrid have already parted ways with four players this summer, there could be some more exits on the cards before the summer transfer window closes.

One of the players who the Merengues are looking to offload in the coming days is defender Jesus Vallejo. The Spanish centre-half has hardly played under Carlo Ancelotti in the past couple of seasons and the club are keen to part ways with him.

But according to a report from AS, Vallejo feels comfortable at Real Madrid and prefers to stay at the club this summer.

The 26-year-old ace joined the Merengues in 2015, arriving from Real Zaragoza before being loaned back to his boyhood club. He then had temporary stints with Eintracht Frankfurt, Wolves, and Granada but has been at the Bernabeu since 2021.

But game-time has hardly come his way during the last couple of campaigns at Real Madrid. Indeed, Vallejo has played just 12 times across the previous two seasons (8 in 2021/22, 4 in 2022/23).

It is clear that the Spaniard is not a major part of Ancelotti’s plans, with the manager already having Eder Militao, David Alaba, Antonio Rudiger, and Nacho Fernandez as his options at centre-back.

As such, it is understandable that Real Madrid wish to offload Vallejo. However, the defender is not contemplating an exit despite having offers. He still has two years left on his contract, which would see him complete a decade at the club and that is what the centre-half is aiming for.

So, it remains to be seen if Real Madrid talk to him and convince him to move on this summer.

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.
