Less than six hours remain for Real Madrid to step out for the final of the UEFA Champions League in Paris. After securing domestic glory with a dominant lead, the club eye the pinnacle of world football as the perfect end to what has been a phenomenal season.

Needless to say, all the focus is now on the game against Liverpool, and all important decisions and announcements have been postponed in view of the same. One such matter pushed to a future date is the negotiations with Aurelien Tchouameni.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano Real Madrid will focus on the Frenchman’s deal after the final later today. They know about his preference to join them, and will use the same to their advantage.

AS Monaco demand close to €80 million for their midfield star. The primary aim of negotiations will be to bring down that figure and reach common ground.

PSG and Liverpool are amongst the other clubs interested in his signing, but will both have to play the waiting game to see what pans out between the player and Real Madrid.

Ever since Kylian Mbappe rejected a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, Tchouameni has become a primary target for the club.

While his consistent performances are one factor responsible for him climbing up the wishlist, the sudden availability of funds has been the more important factor.

All signs indicate that the Frenchman will don white next season, playing as a backup to Casemiro. Alongside Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde, he will be the face of Real Madrid’s future midfield.

The Frenchman has not only three goals and two assists to his name in Ligue 1 this season but also averages close to 14 defensive actions per game, making him one of Monaco’s most important players.

Real Madrid are leaving no stone unturned in their bid to assemble an even stronger squad for the upcoming campaign.

Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies are the club’s top targets in that regard, for the two new signings will be regular starters and bonafide difference makers on the field for Los Blancos.

The latter, in particular, arrives to reinforce a position where none of Carlo Ancelotti’s current options are convincing. Fran Garcia and Ferland Mendy have both had their hiccups at the left-back position for Real Madrid, leaving the position open for Davies to take over.

A potential departure

As revealed by MARCA, Davies’ arrival next season will jeopardise Garcia’s importance in the team for the Canadian will be the manager’s first choice by a mile.

Moreover, Ancelotti is said to be in favour of renewing Mendy, implying that Garcia will practically be his third choice.

Come summer, Garcia could thus be sold if the club receive an offer that they can make money off. Considering that they shelled out €5 million last summer for his incorporation, any offer north of that mark could do the job.

In 18 appearances and 11 starts in La Liga this season, the 24-year-old has provided four assists for Los Blancos. Interestingly, he has started just one of Real Madrid’s last six games across all competitions.

Agreement complete

As revealed earlier this week, Real Madrid have reached a verbal agreement with Alphonso Davies. An agreement with Bayern Munich over a transfer fee could be a difficult proposition, however.

As such, it is unclear if Los Blancos will make the move for Davies this summer at a subsidised fee or wait until next year when the player will be a free agent.

Garcia’s future, needless to say, depends on their plan of action on the Davies front.
