Kylian Mbappe is the second most expensive transfer in football history. In 2018, PSG signed him for a fee of €180 million from Monaco. His teammate Neymar remains the most expensive player after PSG paid a total of €222 million to Barcelona for him.
Real Madrid has signed Tchouaméni from AS Monaco for a fee of €80 million. He is now Monaco’s second most expensive departure after Mbappe.
When asked about what made him pick Real Madrid over PSG, the 22-year-old said: “I did speak to other clubs, but I was always hoping Real Madrid would make an approach too. So, I could have signed for other clubs, but I didn’t hesitate for a second when Real Madrid did become interested.
At that point, I explicitly asked my agent to make this move happen. I want to make my mark on football and I think the best club to do that is Real Madrid, the biggest club in the world. Maybe going to other clubs I’d have had more minutes and then more of a guarantee of going to the World Cup, but I am looking forward to this challenge.”
The youngster also shared an anecdote about how keen he was to come to the Spanish capital, revealing: “I was already negotiating with Real Madrid and other teams by the time of the Champions League final. When I was watching the comebacks against PSG, City or Chelsea, I really wanted to come here and wrote to my agent, asking him to do all he could.”
