Aurelien Tchouameni’s rise as France’s next midfield star is almost complete.
Tchouameni replaced the injured Ngolo Kante for France and helped his team win the UEFA Nations League.
The Monaco midfielder had a little help. He plays in midfield alongside Paul Pogba.
And when it comes to Manchester United, that’s exactly the point.

As United can confirm, it was not easy to find the perfect fit alongside Pogba.
Adrien Rabiot had started the semi-finals before he was substituted for Tchouameni. France’s race to catch up was really tough after this substitution.
Tchouameni was rewarded with a start against Spain in the final and while La Roja was a tough test, France prevailed.
Pogba is a fan
Pogba became aware of Tchouameni during the international break in September when he played at his side for the first time.
The United star was quoted in an interview with Ouest-France: “Very, very good. He’s not a boy, he’s a man.
“It’s fun to play next to him. He brings a lot of energy. Lots of energy, exceptional technical and physical quality.
“We wish him that he plays a lot of games and that I am always by his side.”
Now the partnership between Pogba and Tchouameni is successful, as the couple won the UEFA Nations League.
Monaco have a jewel in their hand and United are lucky that no other club managed to capture him this summer.
Last season in Ligue 1, Tchouameni took second place for successful tackles and fourth place for interceptions.
Tchouameni made four interceptions against Spain, more than any midfielder on the field.
The 21-year-old made two tackles, created a chance, won two free kicks and won four air duels.
The youngster has outstanding skills and the potential to get even better. He has an average of 2.9 tackles per game and 2.1 interceptions in Ligue 1 this season.
He’s the midfielder United should sign and he could cost a lot less than Declan Rice. We suggested Tchouameni as a possible new addition this summer.
Now that he’s starring alongside Pogba for France, it seems even more important that United bring him on.

Sign him up?
Pogba’s own future is uncertain. So a move in January could be absolutely crucial for Tchouameni.
Signing the Monaco star would be an impressive deal regardless of what Pogba does. But it could be the last piece in the puzzle and trust Pogba to renew his deal.
If United didn’t look closely at Tchouameni before last night, they should really do it now.
Here’s a look at how United fans reacted to Tchouameni’s performance …
There’s no way anyone at Man Utd didn’t think of signing Tchouameni after today’s game. He and Pogba worked so well together. Pogba probably asked him to join us. We have to go for him, man. #mufc

If Manchester United don’t sign Aurelian Tchouameni, I have no hope

A trio of Paul Pogba, Tchouameni and Bruno Fernandes at Man United. I know that I’m not alone with this, it definitely has to happen 👍⚽

Aurelien Tchouameni to Manchester United can’t happen soon enough.

Tchouameni will be a massive upgrade for Fred and an advantage for Pogba in United

Tchouameni is great. Filled in the gap from the edge perfectly. Chase the ball all over the field. He’s only 21, the sky is the limit for this guy. United should keep an eye on him very closely.

Tchouaméni is perfect for Manchester United.
Would be a good match for us

Tchouameni is a baller, we have to bring him to unity

If United can get Tchouameni, we’ll win EVERYTHING
Love this no-brainer

Tchouameni is extraordinary. Suits me at United

Tchouameni is everything United needs in this midfield alongside Pogba
