Ammon News - Real Madrid have agreed the signing of Aurélien Tchouaméni from Monaco on a six-year deal, the two clubs announced on Saturday.

The France midfielder, 22, will join the European champions for a fee of €80m, with another €20m in add-ons (a combined £85.3m). “Tchouaméni will be unveiled on 14 June following his medical,” read a statement from Madrid. “Tchouaméni will then be unveiled to the media.”

Tchouaméni becomes the second most expensive sale in Monaco’s history behind only Kylian Mbappé, who signed with Paris Saint-Germain for €180m in August 2017. Named Ligue 1’s young player of the year in 2020-21 after joining from Bordeaux for €16m, Tchouaméni was in high demand, with Liverpool and PSG also bidding to sign him.

Real Madrid, who had been negotiating with the player since March, got the deal done ahead of the competition. Considered to be one of the game’s most exciting young talents, Tchouaméni is already a regular in France’s national team and was part of the starting lineup in last year’s Nations League final against Spain. He racked up 50 appearances for Monaco across all competitions in 2021-22, with five goals and three assists.

Capable of playing both as a defensive and central midfielder, Tchouaméni will strengthen a stellar but ageing Real Madrid midfield led by Luka Modric, 36, Toni Kroos, 32, and Casemiro, 30. He will join up with his fellow France midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, 19, who signed for Madrid in September 2021 from Rennes in a deal worth up to €40m.
