Real Madrid will NOT sell Aurelien Tchouameni to fund Jude Bellingham transfer raid this summer with Blancos unconcerned by Frenchman's slow start
- Real Madrid won't sell Tchouameni
- Believes in the midfielder's ability
- Will compete with Man City to sign Bellingham
WHAT HAPPENED? Los Blancos spent €80 million last summer to rope in the French international midfielder from AS Monaco. But since his arrival at the club, he is yet to establish himself as a regular starter.
There were doubts over his future with Real Madrid eyeing a move for Jude Bellingham next season, but they are not planning to sell the Frenchman to facilitate the Englishman's transfer to the club, according to AS.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 23-year-old midfielder has appeared in 36 matches for the club this season which includes 23 appearances in the league.
Despite having him in the squad, Carlo Ancelotti has often opted to field Toni Kroos as a deep-lying midfielder which is not the German's natural position.
But despite less game time, the club reportedly believes in the player's abilities and thinks he will get better with time and adapt himself to the new conditions.
