The competition in midfield at Real Madrid will be more than ever during the 2023/24 season. With the arrival of Jude Bellingham for a record fee followed by Arda Guler’s acquisition, Carlo Ancelotti will have plenty of options to choose from, and thus comes the massive conundrum.

Amidst all this, it has been reported by MARCA that a certain Aurelien Tchouameni still has the full confidence of his manager and the Italian believes that the former AS Monaco man will get back to his usual best.

The manager is of the idea that Tchouameni will recover after undergoing a dip in form during the second half of the previous season, that is, after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Tchouameni, 23, joined Real Madrid for a fee reported to be around €80 million, rising up to €100 million if certain criteria are met. The French international started his Madrid tenure with a bang, but post FIFA World Cup, he lost his starting spot in Ancelotti’s lineup.

Now, despite the manager’s trust, it is not that the midfielder will return to the starting grid right away. On the contrary, he will have to earn his place especially now that there is increased competition in the team.

Fran Garcia’s acquisition means Eduardo Camavinga will no longer have to play as a makeshift left-back. This means Tchouameni will now have to battle for a solitary spot against his compatriot, as well as Toni Kroos, who was used as a pivot by Ancelotti in quite a few matches last term.

Meanwhile, Tchouameni’s unusual situation at Real Madrid certainly has not gone unnoticed as it is believed that several Premier League clubs are keeping tabs on the player. As reported before, Tchouameni also has admirers within the Bayern Munich offices.

However, despite the interest, the Bavarians have not made any contact either with the player or with Real Madrid. In all honesty, one cannot expect them to do that anyway as the player has no interest in leaving. Above all, Real Madrid are not at all interested in doing business in the first place.

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
