Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni (22) is rumored to make move to Real Madrid this coming transfer window.
Along with Real Madrid, rumours are said that Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in signing the Frenchmen.
In an interview with CNN on Wednesday, Tchouameni seemed to tacitly confirm where the interest was coming from and equally that it was reciprocated.
“I like the Spanish games and the English ones. It’s different playing in Spain or England. But in the end for me it’s just a question of adaptation. I am an ambitious person. Every time I do something I just want to win. If I want to be great, I have to adapt in order to gain some things that allow me to grow as a player.”-Aurelien Tchouameni
During the interview, Tchouameni laughed about how he is the center of transfer rumors.
“It’s funny. With my friends Benoit Badishile and Djibril Sidibe, every morning they say -‘Ah, you’re going to this club.’ And the next day, it’s another club.”-Aurelien Tchouameni
“But it’s good to be in this situation. It means I’m in a good position. I have worked a lot in order to achieve this, so that hte best clubs want me. In the end, it’s just social media… The most important thing is to do well in the next training session and in the next game. We’ll see”-Aurelien Tchouameni
