Aurelien Tchouameni is not showing the qualities of Real Madrid’s standard after Lo Blancos purchased him for a whooping €80 million.
The French midfielder was brought in as a long-term replacement for Casemiro, but after impressing early on, the club felt comfortable enough to allow the Brazilian move to Manchester United.
He hasn’t displayed that same form since the World Cup, though.
Tchouameni, who continues to appear slow, has been replaced as the deepest midfielder in recent weeks by Toni Kroos and Eduardo Camavinga.
After the World Cup, he wasn’t fully fit, and a number of ailments have prevented him from continuing.
According to Diario AS, he hasn’t scored and has only contributed two assists, and his defensive statistics are worse than they were at Monaco the previous season.
He was regaining possession of the ball every 11 minutes, making an interception every 30 minutes, and fouling every 63 minutes in Ligue 1.
He recovers the ball for Real Madrid every 15 minutes, makes an interception every minute, and commits a foul every 59 minutes.
It is true that Tchouameni hasn’t been in great shape in 2023, and the squad has suffered greatly as a result. Nonetheless, there are sufficient conditions in place to predict that he will eventually regain his prior form.
While it seems that the adrenaline carried him through the first stage of adaptation after signing with Real Madrid, the mental exhaustion may have caught up with him following the World Cup.

On International Stage
