Tchouameni, the official announcement


By: Manu Tournoux

During a press conference this Thursday, Aurélien Tchouameni discussed Real Madrid's position regarding the Olympic Games.

Kylian Mbappé still gets people talking. This time, it is no longer a question of his future in the club, which indeed seems settled, but of his summer program. His presence at the Euro in Germany is obviously a given. But it is quite different from that of the Olympic Games which will take place immediately. If Thierry Henry calls for it and if the Bondynois has never hidden his wish to compete in the Olympics, Real Madrid risks vetoing it.

In a letter sent to the French Football Federation, the Merengue club recently made it known that it did not intend to release its players for the Olympic Games as authorized by FIFA. Enough to undermine the Olympic dream of the former Monegasque. And the position of the Madrid players was confirmed this Thursday by Aurélien Tchouameni, who attended a press conference on the sidelines of the French team gathering.

“There is not much to say”

“Of course it’s something extraordinary. But Real is our employer so if he vetoes, there is not much to say,” he confided, explaining that it was in any case difficult to string together the Euro and the Olympics: “It’s difficult to string together the two competitions. But it also depends on playing time during the Euro. It can be a problem physically to play the whole Euro and then all the Olympic Games. »

However, the former Bordeaux player does not take the absence of Kylian Mbappé for granted. The reason ? The Parisian striker has not yet signed with Real Madrid as rumors suggest. “The club where Kylian goes will decide. Maybe he will play them if the club where he signs, I don't know which one, allows him to do so.”he breathed with a smile, assuring that he preferred Kylian Mbappé to Erling Haaland: “I prefer Kylian over everything. Erling is a great player but I prefer Kylian. »

The Madrid midfielder also returned to the exchange he had with Jude Bellingham and which ignited social networks. Contrary to what was said, there was no question of Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland. “We weren’t talking about Kylian and Erling. We were talking about Dier and Dayot Upamecano. Jude was talking about Dier and I was talking about Dayot. It will sell less but it’s the truth,” he assured.
