Over the past few weeks, there have been rumblings about the future of Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, with the Frenchman reported to have grown unhappy at the club due to his lack of game-time in recent months.

Liverpool, who were interested in signing Tchouameni last summer before he chose to sign for Real Madrid, are once again understood to have the 23-year-old midfielder on their radars.

But, Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato (h/t Madrid Xtra) has dismissed those speculations and reported that Tchouameni will stay put at Real Madrid this summer.

Tchouameni arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu only last summer, joining from AS Monaco in a deal worth €100 million, including add-ons.

The French international soon became a permanent fixture in the starting XI following the departure of Casemiro and turned in one excellent performance after the other, soon becoming a key part of Carlo Ancelotti’s setup.

However, Tchouameni’s form has declined after the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, while he also has had to deal with some fitness issues. It has contributed to him losing some of his sheen, leading to speculations about a move to Liverpool.

But, Real Madrid manager Ancelotti is said to have total faith in the former AS Monaco wonderkid, with the club considering him a key player for the present and the future.

Even though it might have been because of injuries to other players, Ancelotti started Tchouameni in the final of the Copa del Rey this past weekend, when he could have easily chosen Eduardo Camavinga to start in midfield and gone with Nacho at left-back.

So, while there may be some residual interest from the side of Liverpool, it seems extremely unlikely that the Merengues will let him leave just after one season.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
