“We talk about it in the locker room”: Tchouaméni awaits the arrival of Kylian Mbappé at Real Madrid

Everyone has their own opinion on the arrival of Kylian Mbappé at Real Madrid. This Tuesday, it was Aurélien Tchouaméni who put a small part back into the machine. Asked about the subject following his team’s victory on the Leipzig pitch (0-1) this Tuesday in the Champions League, the French international spoke to the microphone of Canal +.

“If Mbappé announced his decision to me for next season? To me personally? Well no, he replied to journalists from the encrypted channel. And even if he had told me, I wouldn’t have said it! »

“An important subject”

The French midfielder, converted into a central defender for several weeks due to the injuries affecting the Madrid squad, admitted that the arrival of “Kyks” was a real subject in the Real locker room: “We talk about it in the locker room from time to time, it’s an important subject. We hope that things will settle down in the coming weeks. »

Before that, Real Madrid must first validate their ticket for the quarter-finals of the Champions League. After his sluggish victory this Tuesday in Germany thanks to a superb goal from Brahim Diaz, the leader of the Spanish championship will host Leipzig on March 6, this time at home. For his part, Kylian Mbappé and PSG play their first leg against Real Sociedad this Wednesday evening (9 p.m.).

Questioned, moreover, about his circumstantial repositioning in central defense, linked to the numerous defections in this sector of play, Tchouaméni was quite clear on Canal +. “No, be careful, because I think the coach (Didier Deschamps) is watching, but you shouldn’t tell him that,” he smiled.

The native of Rouen, who had already played four times with Real this season in La Liga, then added, more seriously: “My favorite position is midfielder. If the coach calls on me as a defender, I will give my best, but I think we have what we need in the selection so it will be fine. »
