Aurelien Tchouameni, a France midfielder, has joined Real Madrid on a six-year agreement from Monaco. Both clubs have confirmed the agreement, with Real announcing that a presentation ceremony for the 22-year-old will take place on Tuesday following a physical. Tchouameni scored three goals and added two assists in 35 Ligue 1 games for Monaco last season.
Since his international debut in September, he has made 11 appearances for France. The deal is said to be for 80 million euros (£68.3 million) plus roughly 20 million euros (£17 million) in add-ons.
Liverpool, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain had all been linked with Tchouameni. Reports had suggested that Tchouameni had agreed to terms with Liverpool of the Premier League, but Tchouameni will join Real Madrid after the club missed out on signing Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe earlier this summer.
