The Real Madrid President made it known that Tchouaméni had several options on the table but opted to join Real Madrid and play for his dream club.
“Dear Aurelien, congratulations, because you are fulfilling your dream of playing for Real Madrid. At the age of 22 you had a choice and you have chosen Real Madrid,” he stated at the presentation.
“Your teammates, Benzema and Camavinga, will have told you about the magic of the Bernabeu. Now you will discover it for yourself.”
He continued to praise Tchouameni’s decision.
“We have a great squad, with players who have won five Champions League titles, but the next challenges will be tough, so we must strengthen ourselves and sign players who believe in this club and who are hungry to win.
“Today begins a stage in your life that you will be proud of. In a few minutes, you will wear the shirt of Real Madrid, the one you have chosen.”
Florentino also praised Monaco, the club from which Tchouaméni joined.
