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.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
