With the likes of Gareth Bale, Isco and Marcelo all seeing their contracts expiring at Real at the same time as Mbappe’s at PSG, they may have room on the wage bill to add Tchouameni as well as his France teammate.

Manchester United superstar Pogba has talked up the talents of the youngster, saying: ‘He’s not a boy, he’s a man.

‘It’s a pleasure to play next to him, he provides a lot… plenty of energy, technical quality and extraordinary physicality. I hope to play plenty of games together and always be on his side.’

Tchouameni remains under contract at Monaco until 2024, but Chelsea, Juve and real may all test their resolve in the summer.
