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 looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.

Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.

The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.

The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.

Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.

The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.

Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
