Real Madrid signed Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco for a deal worth €80 millions plus € 20 millions add ons, according to Fabrizio Romano.

However, before joining Real Madrid Aurelien Tchouameni was approached by Kylian Mbappe. Kylian Mbappe asked him to join Paris Saint-Germain but Tchouameni said he will join Real Madrid.

In an introductory press conference Aurelien Tchouameni said: “As soon as Real Madrid’s offer came along, I told my agent to close the deal,”

“There were other negotiations, but the first option was Real Madrid.

“By the Champions League final there were already negotiations with Real Madrid and it’s true that when I saw the games against PSG or [Manchester] City I wrote to my agent and said ‘Do everything possible to take me there, please’.

“Kylian Mbappe decided to stay at PSG and he already knew I was leaving Monaco and wanted to know if I could go to PSG, but I told him I wanted [to sign for] Real Madrid and he understood perfectly.”
