Speaking to Canal+, Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni has admitted that the players in the locker room discuss the situation of the club’s top transfer target Kylian Mbappe.

It is no secret that Mbappe is at the top of Real Madrid’s summer shopping list, with the 25-year-old superstar’s contract at PSG set to expire at the end of the season.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has come close to joining Los Blancos in the past only for the move to fall through. But, this time out, there is belief and confidence within the club offices that the deal will finally be completed.

Tchouameni on Mbappe situation

And Tchouameni has now claimed that the players within the Real Madrid locker room do indeed discuss the whole Mbappe situation and hope that it is resolved at the earliest possible.

“We talk about it [Mbappé’s future] in the dressing room, because we know it’s an important issue. It has been for quite a few years. So we hope things will be sorted out in the coming weeks,” said the French midfield powerhouse.

Tchouameni and Mbappe, teammates for the French national team, have an excellent relationship. As such, the midfielder was naturally asked if his compatriot had revealed his decision to him.

In response, the Real Madrid star said: “He didn’t tell me anything personally. Besides, if he had told me, I wouldn’t tell….”

What’s going on with Mbappe?

As mentioned earlier, Mbappe will see his contract with PSG expire at the end of the season. And reports have suggested that he will leave the French capital club, which would put Real Madrid in the driving seat for his signing.

However, an agreement between the two parties might take some work, as the 25-year-old’s entourage is reportedly not happy with the terms presented by Los Blancos.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
