After a difficult second half of the 2022/23 campaign, Aurelien Tchouameni is making his presence felt at Real Madrid once again.

The French midfielder has participated in all three of Los Blancos’ pre-season games so far this campaign and even played the full 90 minutes against Barcelona in the recent Clasico.

Carlo Ancelotti trusts the youngster to handle the defensive midfield for the upcoming campaign. So far, his performances this term have been promising.

Recently, Tchouameni spoke about the talent in the squad and the pres-eason campaign in an interview relayed by MARCA.

The French starlet insisted that Real Madrid had the best midfield in the world and highlighted the diverse profiles Ancelotti had at his disposal.

“I think we have the best midfield in the world, with legends like Luka and Toni. We learn from them every day,” he said.

“We also have young people who have an incredible level like Bellingham, Camavinga, Valverde, Ceballos and me. We’re going to do well this season.”

Talking about the intensity of the group in the pre-season, both in training and in the fixtures, he said:

“We are working well these days with Pintus and the coaching staff, we are happy. We are not playing friendly matches because we are playing against good teams and we want to do well. We are working very well in training and we want to do the same in the matches.”

Real Madrid have won two of their three pre-season games so far this campaign but ended up on the wrong side of a 3-0 Clasico defeat at the weekend. Commenting on the overall form of the team, Tchouameni said:

“We are playing well in the pre-season. We use a new system and we have to learn every day how to play in this system. We have an incredible team and I’m sure we’re going to have an incredible season.”

The youngster then commented on his individual performances so far this campaign and highlighted the work he has been putting behind the scenes, saying:

“I feel good with the team and I think I’ve done a good job. In addition, on vacation, I worked a lot with a physical trainer. I feel good on the field, we want to play well and improve every day.”

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
