Aurelien Tchouameni has been targeted by numerous clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain. However, the young midfielder says that while respecting PSG as one of the great European clubs, his intention to move to Real Madrid has never been questioned.
“I didn’t think too much about PSG”, he told Telefoot.
It is also a great European club, but I had no doubts, I just wanted Real Madrid.
Following Casemiro’s departure from Manchester United, Tchouameni made an immediate impact at the Santiago Bernabeu and has already garnered great praise from manager Carlo Ancelotti. Playing mostly deep, providing protection to the back line as Casemiro used to do, the 22-year-old has so far played eight games for the Blancos in all competitions, without a goal to his name so far but with two assists.
Tchouameni also downplayed the significance of the € 80 million fee imposed by AS Monaco for his move to the Spanish capital, pointing out that he was not the one to set that figure and as far as he is concerned it is only important for him to perform well in the Spanish capital. his new club.
Liverpool are also believed to have an interest but surrendered quickly after being told of the player’s choice to join Real.
