Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Aurelien Tchouameni.
According to Spanish outlet Sport, new United manager Erik ten Hag wants to bring the Real Madrid midfielder to Old Trafford.
Despite Madrid spending significantly on him just last summer, the club is now open to offers for Tchouameni.
The change in stance stems primarily from the potential need to make room for a major signing like Kylian Mbappe or a replacement for Karim Benzema.
This impending move and the requisite financial investment could prompt Real Madrid to consider offloading players to maintain financial stability.
Bayern Munich has expressed interest in Tchouameni and has contacted Real Madrid to explore the possibility of negotiating his departure. Bayern is even open to a loan deal, given Madrid’s surplus of midfielders.
Thomas Tuchel has said bayern munich needs a defensive midfielder, and Tchouameni’s profile would seemingly fit the bill.
Man United is also in the running for Tchouameni, with manager Ten Hag reportedly eager to bring him to Old Trafford. The club is considering making an offer similar to what Madrid paid for the player last year.
This suggests Ten Hag views Tchouameni as a valuable addition to United’s squad, potentially providing qualities that could enhance the team’s midfield dynamics.
