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 interview with Born And Red, renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano offered an update on the future of Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni. Romano said,

“For Tchouameni I think it’s going to be very complicated…from what I’m hearing, Real Madrid consider Tchouameni a very important player for their project.

“Never say never in the market but at the moment it looks very difficult, and I think part of Real Madrid’s plan is to have a very strong midfield for next season.

“When you say about the interest from Liverpool, this is more than interest, because one year ago Jurgen Klopp was pushing in a crazy way to have Aurelin Tchouameni. He called the player many times, he tried to convince the player and was really close to convincing the player.

“He tried his best but in the end, Tchouameni decided to go to Real Madrid because it was his dream since he was a kid, his biggest dream in life, and he considers Real Madrid the biggest club in the world. The truth is Klopp really tried very hard to sign Tchouameni.

“I think this is really difficult this summer for Liverpool, but, never say never.”

Tchouameni’s Impressive Season In The Spanish Capital

Tchouameni played a valuable role in Carlo Ancelotti’s squad last season when he put in several solid displays at the heart of his midfield. The French sensation participated in 50 matches for Los Blancos in the previous campaign, picking up four assists across various competitions.

The Rouen-born talent was a reliable performer in both halves as he averaged 1.9 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 1.5 clearances, 1.2 shots, 0.7 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga. He even distributed the ball accurately from midfield after making 93.5% of his attempted passes in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).

What Should Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti Do With Regards To Tchouameni?

Tchouameni remains one of the most important assets in Ancelotti’s squad. He can anchor the midfield well and can even be a creative outlet for Real Madrid in the opponent’s half.

Thus, Los Blancos would be wise to keep hold of him for the long run. At 23, the Frenchman has got a very bright future ahead of him at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Furthermore, his current deal at the Madrid club will expire in 2028, so there is no immediate need for Ancelotti to let him go this summer.
