Real Madrid beat Liverpool, PSG to €100m Tchouameni signing


Real Madrid have signed Aurelien Tchouameni in a deal worth more than €100million (£85m).

The young midfielder joins from Monaco on a six-year deal.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain had been linked with the France international and Jurgen Klopp reportedly failed in a late bid to convince the player to move to Anfield.

However, Tchouameni had his heart set on the Champions League holders and rejected a better financial package on offer at PSG to make to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

“Next Tuesday, June 14, at 12:00 at Real Madrid City, the presentation ceremony for Aurélien Tchouaméni as a new Real Madrid player will take place after the corresponding medical examination.

“Aurelien Tchouameni will then appear before the media.”
