His big-money move to Real Madrid, quick adaptation and settling into Ancelotti’s plans and now his regular starts for the French National Team just go on to show the quality in his boots and the resilience in his mentality.

The youngster recently gave an interview with RMC Sport where he talked all the aforementioned topics, especially about his adpatation in Spain. Here are the snippets from his invterview.

Tchouameni opened his interview with a strong statement against the rumour that the French National Team felt more united after Karim Benzema’s departure from the squad.

“I wanted to come back to something we saw regarding Karim’s departure, the fact that we felt better since he was no longer here. It’s totally false because even when he was here it was already going very well.”

He then expressed his respect and gratitude towards Real Madrid and how it was a dream come true fir his to don the white color jerrsey.

“I thank God every day when I arrive at my club, Real Madrid.”

When news of Tchouameni’s desire to leave AS Monaco surfaced, several top European clubs joined the race to sign him including Real Madrid’s arch rivals Barcelona. The youngster said that he always had Carlo Ancelotti’s side in his mind and did not consider other proposals.

“There were many approaches from clubs but I put everything on standby because in my head I thought that Real Madrid could arrive at any time.”

The 22-year-old then elaborated on what made the Madrid based club so prestigious and how it motivated him to do his best.

“From the first moment I arrived at Real Madrid city, I realized how big of an institution it is. I said to myself ‘IT’S ON’.”

When asked how it felt like to play with Eduardo Camavinga at such a big club at a young age, he said,

“It makes us learn together with the greatest. We have the chance to train with Kroos & Modric.”

The midfielder signed off with a note on his adaptation at his new club and gave credit to not only teammates but also other members of the management.

“I adapted quickly thanks to my teammates, staff and everyone who made me feel like at home. We continue to progress.”

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
