- RMC reports that Aurelien Tchouameni will join Real Madrid from Monaco
- Their representatives have been in close contact with Real and Liverpool
- It looks like the Reds will be disappointed as the Frenchman is set for the Bernabeu trade.
Aurelien Tchouameni will join Real Madrid from Liverpool this summer for a fee of around £68m, according to reports.
The 22-year-old Frenchman is considered one of the best young midfielders in Europe and seems to have chosen the Bernabéu as his next destination.
Real Madrid, still reeling from Kylian Mbappé’s decision to stay at PSG, have the free money to make a splash in the market.
Real Madrid are set to sign young Monaco sensation Aurelien Tchouameni this summer
According CMR: ‘Aurélien Tchouaméni has decided to sign for Real Madrid. The French international will join the La Liga side on a 5-year deal, in a deal worth around £68m excluding bonuses.
Real are building for the future and want to combine two young French stars in midfield, with Eduardo Camavinga already impressing this season.
Casemiro, 30, is the obvious choice to be replaced by Tchouameni and his decision will come as a huge blow to Liverpool in the week of the Champions League final against the team his target reportedly decided to join.

Jurgen Klopp will be disappointed if Liverpool miss out on the 22-year-old star
Marca reports that if Tchouameni does sign for Real Madrid, Dani Ceballos will leave before the start of next season.
If there are any reservations from Tchouameni, there is a concern about playing time and he wants to become a starter for France in time for the World Cup later this year in Qatar.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Juventus and PSG are also among the suitors, but Real and Liverpool have always been seen as favourites.
Tchouameni has a powerful presence in midfield and made 35 appearances with three goals and two assists in Ligue 1 this season.
He only joined Monaco from Bordeaux in 2020, but has long been on the radar of top teams, having represented France at age group level since he was 16.
Tchouameni is expected to complete the move to the Bernabeu for around £68m
