Midfielder Aurelien Chuamini’s transfer from Monaco turned around after it emerged that Paris Saint-Germain were ready to beat Real Madrid for the player.
The French player was said to be on the cusp of a move to La Liga, with Marca saying Madrid made him a top priority this summer, but that deal is at risk due to what the French giants have to offer.
According to reports, PSG have raised their offer making it difficult for Real Madrid to push a deal across the finish line with Monaco deciding which offer they will accept this weekend.
Aurelién Tchouaméni and his agent reached a verbal agreement with Real Madrid last weekend, ahead of the Champions League final. His priority has been clear for weeks. ⚪️ #Real Madrid

While the player is said to be keen on a move to Madrid due to his success in Europe, the money offered by Paris Saint-Germain is tempting with the same effect that has had a huge impact on Kylian Mbappe who ignores the La Liga giants for a new deal in Paris.
Real Madrid have been resolute in stating that they would not fit in with PSG’s alleged €100m bid, but the two French teams were unable to seal a deal given Choamini’s preference to join Los Blancos.
