OFFICIAL: Real Madrid have finally signed Tchouameni from AS Monaco
Tchouameni joins Real Madrid finally for €80 million plus €20 million in add-ons from AS Monaco.
On Tuesday, the six-year contract came to an end with the completion of the final medical examination.
The France international has signed a five-year contract with Los Blancos, becoming Real Madrid’s second summer signing after Antonio Rudiger, who arrived on a free transfer from Chelsea.
After Kylian Mbappe’s rejection to join earlier this summer, Real Madrid revived their interest in Tchouameni, who has been on their radar since last year.
Real Madrid had to postpone their plans to sign the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder due to the significant financial outlay they were planning. The midfielder was then considering offers from Liverpool and PSG.
But, at the end of May, Tchouameni received a call from Real Madrid, and he made it plain that he wanted to join the European champions, and Monaco agreed.
He knew where he wanted to play, and neither Mbappe nor Jurgen Klopp’s attempts to persuade him otherwise failed.
Real Madrid believes they have a succession plan in place for Toni Kroos, Casemiro, and Luka Modric, who will continue to play an important role in the team, with Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Fede Valverde.
