Real Madrid and Monaco have reportedly agreed on a fee of €100m including add-ons to sign French midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni.
The 22-year-old was heavily linked to Liverpool and there were reports of deal being closed until Real Madrid entered the scene.
Los Blancos who were Aurélien Tchouaméni’s first choice beat the Reds and the Parisians who were the latest to show interest in the 22-year-old midfielder.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the deal taking Aurélien Tchouaméni to Real Madrid is for €80m upfront plus €20m add-ons for a total of €100m
Jurgen Klopp reportedly called him, but Tchouaméni was only focused on joining Real Madrid.
Paris Saint-Germain showed interest and was willing to pay more than what Real Madrid offered but Aurélien Tchouaméni who also rejected Liverpool only wanted a move to the Champions League holders.
Aurélien Tchouaméni who will join fellow Les Bleus in Karim Benzema, Ferland Mendy, and Edward Caminvinga will sign a five year contract with Real Madrid.
