They say lightning does not strike twice. When life throws an opportunity for one to fulfil his dream, it is thus imperative that he does not let it slip.
According to reports from MARCA, Aurelien Tchouameni followed the same wise words to secure his move to Real Madrid. When the French midfielder learnt that Los Blancos’ interest in him was serious, he did not think twice. The youngster immediately ordered his agent to finalise an agreement at all costs.
This revelation is a clear testimony of Tchouameni’s passion for donning the white colour of Madrid and his love for Real Madrid. Needless to say, his deep admiration of the club will go a long way in ensuring that he becomes a special player at the Bernabeu.
Several clubs were interested in his signing in the summer including Liverpool. In fact, as per the report, the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp even contacted Tchouameni to convince him to move to Anfield.
However, Real Madrid were always the runaway favourite to land his services. Eventually, he sealed a move to his dream club in a deal over €100 million including variables.
Less than a month into the season and Tchouameni is already an indispensable part of Carlo Ancelotti’s setup. He has been one of the standout performers in the team and has two assists in just five La Liga appearances.
His contract with Real Madrid binds him to the Spanish capital until the summer of 2028. He is seen as the present future of the team’s midfield and will be a mainstay in the starting XI for at least the next half a decade at the very least.
Real Madrid want to bring radical changes in Spanish refereeing system – report
Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.
The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid.
Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit.
Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.
Real Madrid not hiding their discontent
The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.
Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit.
For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.
Real Madrid are suspicious
Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition.
For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.
As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.
Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
