Last summer, Real Madrid fought against rivals Liverpool and PSG to capture Aurelien Tchouameni in a deal worth €100 million, including add-ons. Tchouameni made an excellent start at the Santiago Bernabeu, stepping into the enormous shoes left vacant by Casemiro.
Los Blancos shows faith in Tchouameni
Real Madrid will not trade Aurelien Tchouameni to bankroll a summer transfer raid for Jude Bellingham, with Blancos unconcerned by the Frenchman’s sluggish start. The 23-year-old Frenchman rapidly established himself as a player on whom boss Carlo Ancelotti could rely, putting in consistent performances one after the next. Tchouameni’s fortunes have deteriorated since the World Cup break. The defensive midfielder struggled with fitness concerns shortly after the mid-season break and has since lost his starting berth. Ancelotti has chosen Eduardo Camavinga and Toni Kroos over Tchouameni in the holding midfield position.
However, according to AS, Real Madrid looks down upon Tchouameni’s recent drop in form.
The club believes the 23-year-old midfielder has yet to fully adapt to his new surroundings, team tactics, and mindset. It is not unusual for a player to have a difficult debut season at Real Madrid. Luka Modric and Eder Militao both had difficult debut seasons before becoming starts in the team. Camavinga himself had a difficult start and only became a regular in 2023. Real Madrid signed Tchouameni for his defensive abilities. However they also appreciate the midfielder’s skill and power, which they hope will help them in their attacking play.
According to recent rumours, Liverpool, who missed out on Tchouameni last summer, are set to revive their interest in him. Real Madrid, on the other hand, have no plans to listen to any bids for the 23-year-old French international and are unconcerned about his recent drop in form.
