Real Madrid are set to sign Aurelien Tchouameni, while may be troubled again by Paris Saint-Germain.
The Spanish and French champions have already made headlines over the future of Kylian Mbappe. They could battle again in the race of the French midfielder.
Mbappe’s initail contract is expired at the end of June and he is believed to join Real Madrid. But a late U-turn changed matters, Mbappe sign a new deal with the Ligue 1 side.
Will Tchouameni join PSG?
Snubbed by Mbappe, Real Madrid must transfer focus to other targets, hoping to build a squad capable of sustaining their Spanish dominance and challenging in Europe.
The La Liga winners are keen to improve in various positions, and midfield is one of them, as they aim to build a long-term partnership, with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos approaching their final years in the game.
It was thought that a deal between Real Madrid and Tchouameni was close, but since the renewal of Mbappe and likely arrival of Sporting Director Luis Campos at PSG, the French side think they have a good chance.
This summer could mark the start of a transfer rivalry between Real Madrid and PSG – the situation over Mbappe already created difficult relations between the two, and Tchouameni’s future could amplify that.
