the amazing backstage of the Aurélien Tchouameni operation

What’s next after this ad

“I was able to choose, but when I found out Madrid were interested, I didn’t think about it for a minute. (…) I had spoken with other teams and when Madrid knocked on my door, I did not hesitate. I spoke with my club, my agent, to reach a good agreement for everyone and now I’m happy to be here.”. This Tuesday, Aurélien Tchouameni spoke for the first time to the press in Madrid, and he was able to detail his choice, that of joining Real Madrid.

The word choice is not overused, because, as he himself said, several stables have come forward in recent months. And Real Madrid has not always been at the head of the gondola … Casa Blanca was obsessed with the Kylian Mbappé file, which it thought it had convinced to come. Before the end of this soap opera, the interest for Tchouameni already existed but the meetings between the entourage of the player and the leaders of Real were not necessarily prolific.

Worse, it was then Liverpool who led the dance. And this destination also appealed to the player, willing to join the Reds. PSG was also there, lurking in the shadows, but had not expressed its concrete interest. AS Monaco’s sporting director, Paul Mitchell, is personally handling the file, convinced that he will be able to take advantage of all this competition. The real turning point for Real Madrid is the humiliation suffered in the Mbappé case. You have to quickly move on and hit a big shot.

Mitchell on the move, Real in redemption

AS Monaco and Paul Mitchell know it, they have gold in their hands. Real Madrid are getting much closer to the conditions demanded by the Principality club, while Liverpool promise to return to the charge once the Champions League final against Real has been played. On the PSG side, we wake up a bit, via Kylian Mbappé, who tries to convince Aurélien Tchouameni to join him, but also Luis Campos, freshly inducted football adviser, who is getting closer to the entourage of the midfielder.

No formal offer from PSG to Monaco, but a message nevertheless slipped: if a club accelerates and finds an agreement, it will be necessary to warn the club of the capital, ready to align. Paul Mitchell rubs his hands and enters the home stretch of negotiations with Real Madrid from a position of strength. He delights in informing Real Madrid of the Parisian threat, and the merengue club will finish convincing the ASM by inflating the bonuses up to 20 M€ to reach the potential sum of 100 M€ in total. PSG will not make any offers in the end.
