By signing Tchouameni, Madrid potentially have the perfect replacements for the ageing trio of Toni Kroos(32), Luka Modric(36) and Casemiro(30). Tchouameni will join the likes of 19-year-old Eduardo Camavinga and 23-year-old Federico Valverde who are waiting in the wings to eventually replace the experienced trio.
Tchouameni came through the youth system at SJ D’Artigues and Bordeaux. He made his debut for Bordeuax in 2018, after a string of impressive performances he made the move to Monaco in 2020. Since then, he has continued his development with the help of legendary midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, who said that he has all the potential to be the complete midfielder. In 74 appearances for Monaco, Tchouameni has chipped in with five goals.
Real Madrid are looking to add more quality to an already world class squad as they look to defend their domestic and European title next season.
