Reds given major transfer lifeline amid Jude Bellingham to Real Madrid claims

Real Madrid’s pursuit of Jude Bellingham could have implications on the future of Liverpool target Aurelien Tchouameni.

According to Spanish publication El Nacional, Tchouameni is being monitored by the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain amid limited game-time in recent months.

The France international moved to the Bernabeu last July and has featured on 32 occasions in all competitions.

However, Tchouameni has struggled for game time recently, and will only face more competition should Los Blancos complete the signing of Bellingham in the summer as expected.

Indeed, Real signing Bellingham could encourage Tchouameni’s suitors to make a move for Tchouameni.

Liverpool in particular, who are in dire need of midfield recruits, will likely want a second bite at the cherry, having failed to sign Tchouameni last summer.

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid attacker Steve McManaman noted that should Bellingham sign for Madrid, it would mean Tchouameni would likely be behind both the England international and Eduardo Camavinga in the pecking order.

Speaking exclusively to SPORTbible, the two-time Champions League winner: “I think Luka [Modric] will probably get another year. Toni Kroos will. So I think they’ll be there if Jude is going to join in the summer, and we don’t know.

“So he’ll certainly learn off Modric, and he’ll certainly fit into the centre midfield area – I don’t think there’s any problem about that.

“Camavinga is probably ahead of Tchouameni even though Camavinga’s played on the left-hand side, at left back a number of times. I think Federico Valverde will play in there [too].

‘But when you’ve got Tchouameni, Camavinga, Valverde, if Jude goes in, with Vinicius and Rodrygo, they’re lots of great problems to have if you’re the manager.

“But I think he will fit in no problem at all. He’s a wonderful player and he plays differently to have Tchouameni and Camavinga play so I don’t think that will be an issue whatsoever.”
