Real Madrid has historically been home to some of football’s biggest names. The trend has continued through the decades, for Los Blancos still houses some of the best-known players worldwide.

One such young star is Vinicius Jr. The Brazilian winger was relatively unknown when he signed for the Galacticos in 2017. Today, he is the team’s poster boy and is even considered the best winger in the world by many.

The incorporation of Kylian Mbappe has thus been viewed with sceptical eyes by some fans across the globe. After all, the French winger would steal the limelight from Vini Jr and become Real Madrid’s most advertised player quite easily if he arrives.

According to reports from MARCA, there will be no such ego clash between the two footballers. Vinicius has big admiration for Mbappe and would love to play alongside him.

Positional dilemma for Real Madrid?

Carlo Ancelotti’s primary concern if Mbappe arrives would be the supposed battle of egos between the new arrival and key players in the dressing room who have built their stature with years of hard work.

However, the battle between Vinicius and Mbappe will not end in the dressing room.

The PSG star has made the left-flank his own during his time in Ligue 1 and even established himself as one of the best in the business in the process.

This could be a worrying factor for the manager, for his Brazilian star plays in the same position.

However, previous reports have suggested that Vinicius will retain his position on the left flank and that Real Madrid see Mbappe operating through the middle.

At the same time, Ancelotti recently indicated that the Brazilian could adapt to a more central role moving forward, which would help accommodate Mbappe on the left.

How close is Mbappe to joining Real Madrid?

As of today, there is no concrete negotiation between Real Madrid, PSG, and Kylian Mbappe surrounding the World Cup winner’s transfer.

The Parisians are pushing for the player to leave Parc des Princes this summer to recoup some economic compensation.

Florentino Perez, however, hopes to push Mbappe’s arrival to the final days of the window and pressurise PSG to sell him for a low price.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
