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.

Federico Valverde, the dynamic midfielder for Real Madrid, is once again on the cusp of adapting to a new role under the guidance of coach Carlo Ancelotti, reports Mario Calderon for Mundo Deportivo

Valverde’s remarkable versatility has been a key asset for Real Madrid, allowing him to excel in various positions on the field. This adaptability has been crucial for the team, and it seems another transformation is on the horizon for the 25-year-old Uruguayan.

The team chances and so does Valverde

His potential shift in role comes amid changes within the team, notably the reassignment of the number ‘8’ shirt to Toni Kroos. 

The German midfielder’s responsibility for constructing the game will likely be shared among several players to ensure a seamless transition.

Here, Valverde’s ability to quickly grasp new concepts will be a significant advantage for both him and Ancelotti. Even during the current period, with many players still absent, Ancelotti is already strategizing on how to best integrate everyone into the team dynamics without compromising performance.

Marcelo Bielsa must be credited

Valverde’s recent experiences with the Uruguayan national team in the Copa America under coach Marcelo Bielsa have further honed his skills. 

Bielsa entrusted Valverde with the captain’s armband and deployed him in a deeper role, where he was responsible for initiating plays from the back alongside his teammate, PSG’s young pivot, Manuel Ugarte. 

This experience has enriched Valverde’s understanding of the game, adding another layer to his already impressive skill set.

As the new season approaches, Valverde will need to re-establish himself in whatever role Ancelotti deems fit—be it as a winger, a pivot, or even a full-back, a position he has previously played under former coach Zinedine Zidane. 

Regardless of where he is positioned, Valverde’s importance to the team is undeniable. His versatility, coupled with his ability to adapt quickly, makes him a pivotal player for Real Madrid’s upcoming campaign.
