In a massive boost, Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni has confirmed that he will rejoin group training tomorrow, ahead of the team’s La Liga clash against Villarreal.

Tchouameni has been out injured for over a month now after he suffered a foot fracture during the Merengues’ clash against arch-rivals Barcelona.

It was expected that the 23-year-old would be sidelined for at least two months, and as such was tipped to not play again in 2023.

Tchouameni confirms imminent return from injury

But Tchouameni’s recovery has gone at a much greater pace than anticipated, with the Frenchman having done individual work in training in recent days.

And amid reports that he could be ready in time to face Villarreal on Sunday, the midfielder has confirmed he will return to training with the group tomorrow.

“Tomorrow I’ll be back with the group,” Tchouameni told El Chiringuito TV.

This comes as a big boost for Real Madrid, who have also lost other important players like Eduardo Camavinga and Vinicius Jr. to injuries in recent weeks.

Tchouameni had been in fine form prior to his injury and had excelled at the base of the diamond midfield formation this season.

With him and Camavinga both unavailable, manager Carlo Ancelotti has had to tweak things a bit and utilise Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde almost as a double pivot at times.

But the Frenchman’s return to group training and possible availability to face Villarreal will again provide the manager with a proper defensive midfielder at his disposal.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
