Aurelien Tchouameni: A colossal deal or an expensive flop?


After an enthralling finish of the season for the Los Blancos, being crowned the champions of Europe for the 14th time and winning the domestic league.

“LALIGA” was a majestic wonder season for them.  

 We saw the nights of real resurrection at the Bernabeu, not once, not twice, but thrice as they prayed for miracles, and miracles arrived one after another for them as they thrashed the likes of big European giants PSG, CHE, MCI, and then Liverpool.  

The mighty sensational comebacks against the Parisians and the English champions Man city were unbelievable as the love affair continued, as the players in the white shirts shimmered spectacularly to lift the champions league trophy once again. When no one believed they would go far in the league, they believed, they saw, and they conquered again.   


Leaving the glory in the past behind, the Los Blancos have started to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season and beyond. After signing Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer from Chelsea now, they signed the 22year-old Frenchman Aurelien Tchouameni for 80 million euros plus add-ons for a five-year contract.

After getting snubbed by Kylian Mbappe again, the Los Blancos decided to strengthen their mid-field as we see a shift of a new mid-field trio at Real Madrid. With the glory years of one of the best mid-fields of all time in the form of Kroos, Casemiro, and Modric, it’s time for a new and young mid-field trio for Madrid.

We are all wondering right now, Why the Los Blancos are spending more than 100 million euros on a midfield player? Real Madrid is on the verge of transition in their mid-field position as their legendary trio of KCM is on the brink of a glorified end. They have found their two long-term no. 8’s in the form of Federico Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga.  

Now they look to explore their long-term no 6 with an engrossing question, who will replace the irreplaceable Casemiro at Madrid? One of the most damaging parts of

Real Madrid’s season was filling the position of Casemiro when he isn’t available. This is where the 100 million euros signing of Tchouameni comes into play.

Carlo Ancelotti will not repeat his mistake, and we will see a frequent rotation of the squad in the next season as we will see Tchouameni getting immediate minutes for Madrid next season as they look to build a team for the future. We will see a new trio of Valverde,

Tchouameni and Camavinga in Madrid next season.  

The Frenchman received massive interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool, but the former AS Monaco man chose the European champions.  

Tchouameni had a compelling season at AS Monaco as the side finished third in the Ligue 1. The Frenchman alone had a brilliant season, registering a mighty stat of 2.5 tackles per match and 2.9 interceptions per game. Decisive offensively with 87% pass completion and a 5-goal contribution for the season, he was named the best mid-field player of the year in Ligue 1 this season. With 1.7 fouls drawn per game and 1.1 dribbles completed per 90, Aurelien Tchouameni is the prolific no 6 to replace Casemiro.


So, after a million-dollar signing, the question that arises in the minds of all the football fans all over the world is, Will Tchouameni get significant minutes at Madrid next season? If yes, how many?  

We will get to see a transitional phase of replacement in the middle of the pitch for the Los Blancos next season as they look to build a champions team for the future. Casemiro will rest, and he will get the relief that all the Madrid fans have been begging for him for the past few seasons. Also, we will see the new midfield trio of Valverde, Tchouameni, and Camavinga replacing the legendary trio of Kroos, Casemiro, and Modric in the next season.  

The most technical advantage of the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni will be the flexibility he will provide Ancelotti to play a double-pivot and a No 10, and we all know the love of Ancelotti for his No 10s.  

So, all the Real Madrid fans are excited and hope to see their future No 6 shine brightly next season. After a tremendous previous season and exploring their new midfield, the Los Blancos will hope to start their next season on a high and turn it into another successful campaign next season.
