A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, ESPN claimed that Manchester United are keen on recruiting AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni. It is believed that Erik ten Hag, who is the favourite to become the new Man United boss, is hoping to acquire the services of the French midfield ace.

Tchouameni’s Impressive Form For Monaco This Season

Tchouameni has enjoyed a solid campaign in French football as he has produced a series of influential performances at the centre of Monaco’s midfield. The 22-year-old has banged in three goals and grabbed two assists in 45 matches for the French outfit this season on all fronts.

The French starlet has given a good account of himself by averaging 2.5 tackles, 2.8 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 1.5 shots, 0.5 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in Ligue 1. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball from midfield after making 87.2% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored)

Is Tchouameni A Good Option For Man United?

Tchouameni doesn’t mind getting stuck in with a few solid tackles to make life difficult for the opposition at the centre of the park. He usually reads the danger quickly and can time his challenges well to secure possession back for his team. The Frenchman can strike the ball with power from long range and even make some powerful runs from midfield.

Standing at 1.87m, Tchouameni can often overpower the opposition in the air and is a tidy passer of the ball as well. We can expect the French talent to add more bite and steel to Man United‘s midfield department. Plus, he would serve as a perfect replacement for Paul Pogba who has only got a few months left to run in his contract at Old Trafford.

At 22, Tchouameni has his best years ahead of him which makes him a good, long-term fit for Man United to consider this summer. He could undoubtedly increase competition for places within the Mancunian outfit‘s match-day squad. With all things considered, Tchouameni will be a decent option for the Red Devils to pursue when the transfer window commences later this year.
