After securing their first “Here We Go” of the 2022 summer transfer window with the free signing of Chelsea center back Antonio Rudiger, it appears Real Madrid will score their second major addition of the window.

No, it is not Kylian Mbappe, but after Mbappe’s rejection of the Merengues, Florentino Perez went on the offensive and escalated the club’s interest in Aurelien Tchouameni. He had always been a key target, but Real proceeded slowly, worried they could not afford Tchouameni’s transfer fee to Monaco and Mbappe’s signing bonus.

But with Mbappe off the table, Real Madrid have stepped up their interest and overtaken Liverpool. Tchouameni was said to be deciding between the Champions League finalists.

The Aurelien Tchouameni transfer will cost Real Madrid 80 million euros

Now, according to a report from RMC Sport, Aurelien Tchouameni has chosen Real Madrid, having already agreed to personal terms with both the Royal Whites and the Reds.

Per the report, Real are expected to pay Monaco 80 million euros (plus bonuses) for the defensive midfielder, which was their asking price. The contract to Tchouameni is expected to be for five years, which is reasonable for the 22-year-old. They will have Tchouameni secured for the future and through some of the best years of his career.

Telefoot’s Julien Maynard adds that Tchouameni has already told his Monaco teammates he is moving to Madrid.

There were questions about whether Real could offer Tchouameni enough playing time due to Casemiro, but many fans are pointing out that it is possible for Tchouameni to win more minutes over Case and convince Carlo Ancelotti, just as the current young star midfielders in Madrid have.

Tchouameni is already a world-class midfielder, and he was the best possible signing for Real Madrid after Mbappe made his choice to stay at PSG. Madridistas will not take this signing for granted until it is official, but this is just the latest report to indicate that Tchouameni to Madrid is going to happen. If Real were serious, this was always a deal they could make, and the Mbappe decision was the kick in the pants to get Perez to move quickly.
