Real Madrid in talks with Monaco over Aurélien Tchouaméni transfer fee

RMC Sport report that Real Madrid’s current offer to Monaco for Aurélien Tchouaméni is €70m, with the Ligue 1 side holding out for €80m and discussions still ongoing.

RMC had indicated earlier in the week that the 22-year-old had chosen to sign for the Merengue, and would be putting pen to paper on a five-year deal.

Paris Saint-Germain had been in the race, with Nasser Al-Khelaifi himself involved in negotiations and hoping France teammate Kylian Mbappé’s extension could sway Tchouaméni, but the option of staying in Ligue 1 seems to have been discarded by the former Bordeaux man.

Monaco’s director of sport Paul Mitchell had set Tchouaméni’s asking price at €80m, a sum which Real Madrid appear to be set to pay as talks move on to the subject of bonuses.
