Real Madrid has captured the signing of AurelienTchouameni who plays as a defensive midfielder for Ligue 1 club Monaco, in a deal worth about 100 million euros.
Tchouameni signed a six-year contract at Real Madrid after being linked with several of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Liverpool and Chelsea in the Premier League.
He noted that Real Madrid’s sensational comebacks in the Champions League against PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City helped him make up his mind.
Tchouameni said As soon as Real Madrid’s offer came along, I told my agent to close the deal, “He said at an introductory press conference. “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.
The new signing said Kylian Mbappe asked if he would sign for Paris Saint-Germain, as the 22-year-old was unveiled at Madrid’s training ground on Tuesday.
His arrival comes after Mbappe rejected Real Madrid to sign a three-year contract at PSG. Madrid have also signed Antonio Rudiger this summer, the defender joining from Chelsea on a free transfer.
“Kylian decided to stay at PSG and he already knew I was going to leave Monaco at the end of the season,” Tchouameni said in a press conference, after being introduced by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.
“He wanted to know if I would go to PSG but I told him Real Madrid was my first choice and he understood that completely, he was very happy for me.
“As soon as Madrid arrived, I didn’t hesitate, “I want to leave my mark on football and the best club for this is Real Madrid. It’s the best decision for me.
“It’s true that when I watched those games I wrote to my agent and told him, ‘please do everything possible to get me to Real Madrid’,” Tchouameni said.
