For close to a month now, Aurelien Tchouameni and Real Madrid have flirted rather publicly over a transfer for the French midfielder. Updates have rolled in on a daily basis, and an agreement seemed close by.

According to reports from David Ornstein, Los Blancos have finally reached an agreement with AS Monaco over Tchouameni’s move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The total package offered by Carlo Ancelotti’s side for the Frenchman is reported to be more than €100 million including the transfer fee of €80 million and bonuses.

With the financial side of the deal now sorted, the clubs are now finalizing the paperwork and other formalities involved. The official announcement is only a matter of time.

Fabrizio Romano further adds that the contract will see the youngster at the club until 2027. When official, Tchouameni will become one of the most expensive signings in the club’s history.

This puts an end to PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool’s pursuit of the midfielder. The player has always maintained Real Madrid as his priority and will now realise his dream of donning the famous white jersey.

Tchouameni made 35 league appearances for Monaco in the 2021/22 season of Ligue 1. In that period, he recorded three goals and two assists.

His impressive performances at the club level earned him back-to-back starts for the French National team this week against Denmark and Croatia.

The 22-year-old is expected to replace Casemiro in the long term and form the core of Real Madrid’s future midfield with Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde.

However, Ancelotti will now have to decide if he uses the €100 million Frenchman as a regular starter or sticks with the Brazilian defensive midfielder for the coming season.

Real Madrid are set to play hosts to Sevilla this evening, in what could prove to be a critical match in the context of the title race.

Although Los Blancos hold a formidable lead at the top of the table, the club are coming on the back of a disappointing result against Rayo Vallecano.

Dropping more points against Sevilla tonight could prove to be costly, especially with Barcelona and Girona breathing down their necks.

Potential Real Madrid lineup vs Sevilla

As Real Madrid approach this crucial game, coach Carlo Ancelotti has to make several arrangements, especially with so many players ruled out either due to injury or suspension.

Defence

Starting from the goalkeeper position, Thibaut Courtois remains out, which means Andriy Lunin should continue in between the sticks, ahead of the unhappy Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In the right-back position, Ancelotti is likely to opt for Lucas Vazquez, as Dani Carvajal is suspended after picking up two yellow cards in the last game.

On a bright note, though, Antonio Rudiger is back and should return to central defence. He will be accompanied by Nacho Fernandez at the heart of Real Madrid’s four-man backline.

Elsewhere in defence, Ferland Mendy should continue to start ahead of Fran Garcia in the left-back position.

Midfield

Moving into midfield, Eduardo Camavinga has been ruled out due to suspension. However, Ancelotti does have a myriad of options in the middle of the park.

Aurelien Tchouameni should continue to operate in the number six position, just behind the two interior midfielders Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Luka Modric is an option on the bench, should Ancelotti require more experience in the middle.

Attack

As for the attack, the Real Madrid frontline should be led by Brahim Diaz once again, even though he faces fierce competition from Joselu.

Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, on the other hand, are guaranteed choices in the wide attacking spaces, though Ancelotti does have Arda Guler and Alvaro Rodriguez as potential alternatives.
