AS Monaco have no intention to accept less than €80m for Aurélien Tchouaméni. He’s giving priority to Real Madrid as he already told his teammates - but nothing done or completed yet. #transfers— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) May 26, 2022

The Ligue 1 club has produced many talented players which have gone on to fetch massive fees, including Kylian Mbappe, Youri Tielemans and Bernardo Silva. Tchouaméni is next in line, as Romano reports Monaco is not going to accept a sum under €80 million.
Real Madrid has had to pivot after losing Mbappe, who also was linked to Liverpool before ultimately returning to PSG. Now all three clubs are battling for Tchouaméni, although the player seems set to head to La Liga. With Casemiro and Toni Kroos getting up there in age, this looks to be a strong buy for Real Madrid.
