Carlo Ancelotti’s squad has great depth in midfield heading into the new season. However, the distribution of talent under his disposal is unequally skewed.

Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Eduardo Camavinga, Arda Guler, Dani Ceballos and Jude Bellingham all perform best when deployed in the advanced midfield. There is, however, not much direct depth in the defensive midfield.

Aurelien Tchouameni thus stands as the manager’s best hope to cover the pivot position. While Kroos and Camavinga can perform the role on need, the Frenchman remains the one the manager counts on.

Fabrizio Romano reiterates the same in his latest report. According to the ever-reliable Italian journalist, Tchouameni is a critical part of Real Madrid’s plans both for the present as well as the future. Ancelotti and the club place complete faith in him and have declared him untransferable.

The 23-year-old began last season as a regular starter after Casemiro’s departure and created waves in the media as the rightful heir to the Brazilian’s place. However, his level dropped soon after the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and has seen a downward spiral ever since.

With the youngster not playing as much as he would have liked to in the second half of the campaign, rumours of a departure began to make way. 

Several teams are at his doorstep with offers with Arsenal and Liverpool being the most prominent names. Romano states that it will be very difficult for either club to lure him to the Premier League. There have been talks of interest from Munich, but that too appears to have passed.

As it stands, Tchouameni will have his chance to prove his worth once more beginning from the pre-season. His continuity in the dynamics will depend on his consistency and quality in the middle of the park. Needless to say, the 23-year-old is more motivated than ever to win back his place.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin is at a crossroads in his career, with several offers on the table, including one from Premier League club Arsenal, according to a report from Diario AS

It is understood that Lunin has grown tired of playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois at Real Madrid and he feels that his performance last season warrants more playing time and equal opportunities. 

Although he will start training with Real Madrid today, it does not guarantee his future at the club.

Real Madrid, on their part, have offered Lunin a contract renewal, which he has yet to respond to. The club has proposed a renewal that would extend his stay until 2029, but the 25-year-old is still unsure about committing.

However, his hesitation is fueled by advice from those close to him, who encourage him to seek opportunities outside of Real Madrid. 

The situation is complicated

However, Lunin remains undecided about his next move. His uncertainty is understandable given the setbacks he has faced, such as Courtois securing the starting position in crucial matches like the one at Wembley in the UEFA Champions League final. 

Lunin had shone in games against Leipzig, Manchester, and Munich, earning praise for his performances, yet he still finds himself in Courtois’ shadow.

The dilemma Lunin faces is significant, as his decision will impact several stakeholders. If he decides to leave Real Madrid, the club will need to find a replacement, with Kepa Arrizabalaga being a potential candidate

On the other hand, if Lunin chooses to stay, Real Madrid have no plans to alter their treatment of him.

For now, everyone is eagerly awaiting Lunin’s decision. His future is hanging in the balance, with the potential to shift the dynamics at Real Madrid and affect his career trajectory significantly. 

Will he stay and continue to fight for his place, or will he seize a new opportunity with a different club, perhaps in the Premier League? Only time will tell, but one thing is clear: Lunin’s next move will be a pivotal moment in his career.
