Real Madrid agree €100m deal for Aurelien Tchouameni

Real Madrid have reached a verbal agreement with Monaco to sign 22-year-old French midfielder, Aurelien Tchouameni. The deal is set to be worth over €100m for Aurelien Tchouameni, Sportscrooner can confirm.

Following the Los Blancos’ failed pursuit for Kylian Mbappe earlier this summer, Tchouameni scooped the attention of Real Madrid. The Monaco youngster who has also attracted interests from Chelsea, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain is now set to join Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Although, there were reports that personal terms were agreed with all four sides but Tchouameni later broke off talks with the latter three. The 22-year-old decided that he wanted to join Real Madrid this summer, and negotiations between the two clubs continued.

Now, sources close to the situation have confirmed that a deal to sign Tchouameni has been struck, with Real agreeing to pay an initial €80m (£68m) plus a further €20m (£17m) in add-ons.

The 22-year-old took the stage as an elite midfielder last season with Monaco, making 50 appearances in all competitions. He also contributed in goal involvements with five goals and three assists. His elite performance secured him a regular spot in Didier Deschamps’ France squads.

Tchouameni played the majority of his minutes as a defensive midfielder, operating either as a lone anchor man or alongside Youssouf Fofana in a pivot, but he is also comfortable in a slightly more advanced role.

Tchouameni is set to become Real’s second summer signing after Antonio Rudiger, who agreed to join the club on a free transfer after running out his contract at Chelsea.
