Aurelien Tchouameni is currently one of the most sought-after midfielders in all of Europe. After making his breakthrough at AS Monaco, the youngster has improved leaps and bounds, essentially becoming the beating heart of his side’s midfield unit.

Tchouameni’s consistent performances in Ligue 1 have even earned him eight caps for the French national team. He looks destined to earn a call-up to the French squad for the upcoming World Cup.

Naturally, the youngster has become a sought-after figure in the transfer market. A host of top clubs across Europe are keen on prising him away from Monaco this summer, and it appears Real Madrid are no exception.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has recently dropped an update on the club’s pursuit of Tchouameni.

It appears the recently-crowned Spanish champions are closely monitoring him ahead of the summer transfer window. They have sent five scouts to keep a close eye on his development at Monaco, with an eye for a potential move in the summer.

Fabrizio believes Real Madrid are being patient about the move. They want to enquire about the details of the potential cost of the operation, knowing Monaco could hold out for a significant asking price.

Los Blancos are unlikely to make a move until they finalise the capture of Kylian Mbappe. The Frenchman is the undisputed top target for the club next season, and the team could revolve around him in the years to come.

While Tchouameni is certain to cost a fortune, the youngster could emerge as an ideal long-term replacement for the ageing Luka Modric.

It makes him a desirable target for the club, as along with another French teammate in Eduardo Camavinga, they could be the face of the future Real Madrid midfield.

Real Madrid have finally received some good news as MARCA confirms that Nacho has finally made his decision about his future, and is set to continue at the club for the foreseeable future.

His contract expires in the summer, and Real Madrid had tabled an extension for the player, which was not accepted by the Spaniard at the time. Now, however, he has decided to reject offers from Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and AC Milan.

Nacho will sign a one year extension, with the option to extend for another year if both parties reach an agreement.

His continuity also means that he will be the new club captain for the 2023/24 season, since Karim Benzema is leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer. Luka Modric will be second captain, followed by Daniel Carvajal and Toni Kroos.

Carlo Ancelotti has also spoken to the player, confirming that they trust him for next season in the team, which has gone a long way in helping convince the player.

The Italian gaffer also spoke about the Spanish defender’s contract situation after the game against Athletic Club yesterday, saying:

“Asensio, Nacho and Ceballos? We have explained them their roles. The club have offered them renewals. Asensio has preferred to leave, Ceballos and Nacho are still thinking about it.” 

While a centre-back by trade, Nacho has played across the defence for Madrid continuously, including putting shifts at left-back, right-back, and even centre-back.

His departure would have probably pushed Madrid to sign another defender, especially since they are considering selling Ferland Mendy if a good offer arrives.

Regardless of that, though, Madrid are moving to sign Alphonso Davies, and have already made initial contacts with the player. Bayern Munich have not rejected their advances.

Further, the los blancos management have already met with Davies’ entourage twice, cementing their interest in the Canadian ace.
