It is not surprising that Real Madrid appears like a good hunting ground for midfield stars to teams across the globe. Carlo Ancelotti’s squad, after all, boasts of one too many star names on its roster with some appearing surplus.

It will be a challenge for the manager to juggle the experience of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos and the young exuberance of Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Jude Bellingham. Dani Ceballos and Federico Valverde are in the mix as well.

Considering the gold mine of talent in Madrid, some clubs from the Premier League have contacted Tchouameni over a possible move to England. Regular playing time appears to be their primary selling point.

Spanish outlet MARCA, however, reports that the defensive midfielder is officially considered not for sale by Real Madrid. The player wishes to stay at the club for the forthcoming season and has the manager’s complete faith.

Carlo Ancelotti sees the youngster as a regular starter in his plans for next season and hopes to give prominence to the younger names in the middle of the park.

Moreover, the Italian tactician hopes to use Camavinga in the attacking midfield, granting Tchouameni the monopoly over the pivot position.

In the end, however, it will boil down to the prodigy’s form. The French International has proven to have what it takes for both club and country, and it is now a question of his consistency.

In 33 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid last season, the 23-year-old provided four assists and created four big chances. Further, he averaged over 11 defensive actions per game and completed 94% of his passes.

The coming campaign will thus be critical in his development and prominence at Santiago Bernabeu. A successful season would grant him the starting role in the team for the years to come. Nevertheless, a disappointing run could force him out of the club next 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.
