The French midfielder is in good physical shape. Los Blancos officials are not worried about his future, because they have 100% trust in the Frenchman.


Tchouameni is the future of the midfield

There were just over six minutes to go before the end of the match, when Carlo Ancelotti decided to replace Toni Kroos to bring on Aurelien Tchouameni. The call to be the substitute for Casemiro and a key player in the Madrid midfield entered the field of play to speed up the last moments of the match. And it is in this situation where the French pivot seems to be anchored. Called to be the squire of both Kroos and Modric, the midfielder has settled in doubt. His appearance and, above all, the performances of his compatriot Eduardo Camavinga have turned him into a player with a secondary role.His last start was last Saturday against Villarreal, but of the 36 games in which he has participated this season with the white shirt, he has only completed 11.


Showing a true masterclass

Tchouameni began to show all his virtues in the matchday four of the League against Betis. That day he gave a recital of all his football virtues, especially when it came to recovering balls. That has been without a doubt his best game with the white shirt. But the World Cup arrived and… everything seemed to vanish: the beginning of the year was bad. He was injured, missing the Super Cup. During his recovery, and while his team was playing to access the next round in the Cup against Villarreal, he was seen in Paris attending an NBA game, something that angered the white fans, but in which he was quick and skilful to apologize.
