Liverpool are set to tables an offer for £69m star midfielder wanted by Real Madrid
According to the latest reports in the Spanish media, the transfer story surrounding Aurelien Tchouameni has taken a new twist.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool had approached the French international, but he chose to join Real Madrid instead.
However, according to today’s articles from AS and Sport (press image below), the scenario is altogether different, and Liverpool may end up grabbing the £69 million-rated star.
The Les Bleus midfielder stated after the UEFA Nations League defeat to Denmark that he has not made a definitive decision on his future.
“My future? It doesn’t worry me, because it’s a position I’ve always wanted to be in. At the moment when the best clubs follow me, it means that I am doing things well”, he pointed out, later adding: “I have not made a decision yet”.
Tchouameni’s statement is said to be quite similar to Mbappe’s, who first agreed to join Madrid but then changed his mind and decided to stay in Paris.
As a result, the 14-time European Champions are concerned and unsure if the young midfielder would follow through on his promise to transfer to the Bernabeu.
According to the Catalan media site, it’s all about money in the end, and Perez needs to reach Monaco’s asking price, or else Liverpool or PSG might sign him.
According to AS, the Ligue 1 club is seeking a sum of 80 million euros plus bonuses for Tchouameni’s sale. Los Blancos, on the other hand, are seeking a contract worth 50-60 million euros with add-ons.
According to the news source, PSG’s interest is driving up the price, but the player does not want to stay in France, therefore his only other alternative, aside from Madrid, is to join Liverpool.
