Real Madrid suddenly lost their midfield stalwart Casemiro, Manchester United bid desperately, and when Real Madrid paid huge fees to sign holding midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, the club was questioned by the public for spending 1 100 million euros to lure the 22-year-old away from Monaco. President Florentino Perez, as we now know, has paid more than expected to try to undercut Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain’s attempts to sign Joao Ameni.
But in the last few games, he has come into his own and has begun to justify the huge transfer fee the Blancos paid to sign him.
In 238 minutes of adjusting to his new club, he completed 93 percent of his passes, averaging 63 passes per game, with two key passes and one assist.
If anyone can replace Casemiro and lead Real Madrid to the next generation of success, it’s Aurelien Tchouameni.
Carlo Ancelotti also seems very happy with the start of Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid.
“Characteristically, he’s the best player for that position, but Camavinga has played there and Kroos is very reliable. It depends on how we want to play, if you want more control, Kroos has a clean pass, and if you need more energy, Chuameni and Camavinga can do better. Aurelien is a great midfielder, very focused on his job. An extraordinary signing for the club.”
