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 are looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.

Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.

The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.

The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.

Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.

The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.

Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
