Several reports from various sources across Europe have been making claims since the past week that English Premier League giants Manchester United are keen to sign Ligue 1 midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni. The creative and talented midfield star has the talent to become one of the most chased-after players in the summer and he has already started attracting a lot of interest. This is not the first time that he will be linked with a move to United, but with Paul Pogba continuing to be close to seal an exit from Old Trafford, the rumors have continued to intensify.
Manchester United are being linked with a move for the AS Monaco starlet, but if that interest is genuine, they are likely to face stiff competition from the likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool for Tchouameni’s signature. Last season’s Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year has ‘already spoken’ to United, but he has ‘not made any decision’ on his future yet, according to Spanish publication Sport, as cited by Sport Witness.
The report describes a move from Barcelona as an ‘impossible dream’ as they expect his valuation to be around €60 million (£50m). Moreover, he would prefer a move to Spain over the Premier League, which puts Real Madrid in a strong position if they can find the cash to finance all of their summer targets.
Tottenham and Liverpool are also in the running to sign the player, who is contracted at Monaco until the summer of 2024, but he has been tipped to move to Old Trafford where he would most likely be having more playing time than any other club. This is particularly because of the huge likelihood of Pogba keahbf the club in the summer, with Juventus and Real Madrid still lurking around.
