The pharaonic details of Real Madrid’s offer for Aurélien Tchouaméni

“We talked about it. Our discussions will remain top secret but he is someone I met in selection, a good person and I hope he comes. This morning, Eduardo Camavinga revealed without too many surprises his hope of seeing Aurélien Tchouaméni join Real Madrid. And each passing day pushes the tricolor international midfielder a little more towards the Spanish capital.

As we revealed to you at the beginning of the week, Casa Blanca was then on target and an agreement was about to be reached with AS Monaco for the transfer of the 22-year-old player. After a first offer of €80m including bonus, Real Madrid drew a second offer which was much closer to Monegasque requirements, namely €100m.

An operation that will exceed 100 M€!

Today we know a little more about the details of the operation even if in Spain, we obviously do not want to mention these amounts. Real Madrid has made a written offer committing to an amount of €80m + €10m in easily attainable bonuses + an amount corresponding to the tax on the capital gains made by ASM on the transfer of Tchouaméni. As a reminder, the Principality of Monaco being considered by Spain as a tax haven, the Spanish tax authorities claim, because of this special status, 19% tax on any capital gain realized by the Principality’s club on the sale of a player in Spain.

Enough to exceed the €100 million in bonus transfer compensation included. Yes, but now, according to a Spanish source, this is still not enough to satisfy the management of the third in the last Ligue 1 championship, which is demanding new bonuses from the Merengue club. Not enough to shake Real Madrid who remain confident about the finalization of the transfer. One thing is certain, at this price, Liverpool is out of the race while PSG has not really passed the second in this file. Better, apart from a phone call some time ago from Nasser Al-Khelaifi in Monaco, no firm offer has been submitted by PSG, which has many other files to manage than this, starting with the appointment of Luis Campos and that of a possible successor to Mauricio Pochettino.
