Real Madrid has thus far been the centre of the summer transfer market
This summer, a number of players have left Los Blancos as well as joined them, with Arda Guler’s most recent addition serving as the cherry on top. Aurelien Tchouameni, a midfielder, is another player who has been widely linked with a transfer abroad as the new season draws closer. One club with a long-standing interest in the 23-year-old midfielder, whose current market worth is €85 million, is Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich has contacted Real Madrid to inquire about Tchouameni’s availability in response to their interest in him. In order to replace Casemiro, Los Blancos paid the midfielder a staggering €80 million plus another €20 million just last year. While he had a stellar first few months in Spain, his performance quickly dipped in the second part of his rookie season, costing him his starting spot.
Due to this and the squad’s overbooking of midfielders, the Frenchman has been linked with a transfer, with Bayern Munich showing particular interest. Bayern is interested because the team needs a defensive midfielder with positional discipline, and manager Thomas Tuchel believes Tchouameni to be the best choice.
According to the source, the Bavarians would also be open to signing him on a loan, something that Real Madrid would not object to. Manchester United has also expressed interest in Tchouameni, in addition to Bayern Munich. The Premier League’s juggernauts are also considering making an economic offer with terms similar to those Real Madrid paid exactly one year ago.
Contrary to the report’s assertion that Real Madrid was enticed to consider Tchouameni’s potential exit, other, more trustworthy sources have claimed that the club does not consider doing so. The 23-year-old is completely trusted by Carlo Ancelotti, and his preseason performance has shown that the former AS Monaco star is returning to his best.
