– There are probably more clubs keeping an eye on the situation, but right now I think Monaco – who still have ambitions to win the Europa League and end up among the top three in Ligue 1 – have so much benefit from the player that they only sell if the price is right for them.

Hangeland: – He is not good enough for Manchester United

– I would assume that there must be a bid of 45-50 million euros before the club begins to look more closely at what ticks in from bids.

That’s what ESPN writer and football scout Tor-Kristian Karlsen says. The Norwegian has a long career in European football and has, among other things, worked as sports director and managing director of the big club Monaco.

The 46-year-old has also worked as a scout for Watford, Bayer Leverkusen, Hannover 96 and Zenit, among others.

He comments on his former employer’s midfield jewel Aurélien Tchouaméni. The French great talent has been the rumor of most big clubs throughout 2021, and after the January window opened, the rumors have started to flourish again.

TV 2’s football expert Simen Stamsø-Møller said last week that Manchester United and Chelsea are two of the teams that should have Tchouaméni on the wish list.

Tor-Kristian Karlsen thinks Chelsea are happy with what they have, but he thinks Tchouaméni would be a clear upgrade in United’s midfield.

– Chelsea is actually basically relatively well covered in central midfield. Jorginho, N’Golo Kanté and Mateo Kovacic may not be similar types, but there are all extremely good players. I think the need at Manchester United is far greater. With Pogba on the way away, there is a need for a two-way player who is qualitatively better than those that Rangnick has at his disposal, says Karlsen and continues:

– Tchouaméni will be a clear upgrade. If you look away from the Premier League, you would think that PSG came on the field – if they do not already have something going on with Pogba.

The Norwegian United profiles have found themselves at ease: – Å fy f *** … It’s the ugliest …

This is how he describes Tchouaméni’s playing style

Tor-Kristian Karlsen, who almost throughout his adult life has made a living from evaluating players and recommending clubs about which players they should buy, is clear in his speech.

He thinks the 21-year-old is already reasonably complete.

– In my opinion, he is a reasonably complete defensive midfielder. Not only does he have impressive physique and cover large rooms, but he has become very ball-safe as well. In addition, he plays with great pondus and authority on the field. I can imagine that he is a storm to face – he is dueling strong in both the defensive and offensive phase of the game.

This is how you’ve never seen the Arsenal hero

Tchouaméni was brought to Monaco from Bordeaux in January 2020 and it did not take long before he took the principality by storm. The big game for Monaco has also given the 21-year-old seven international caps for France.

– In addition, he is tactically disciplined, he follows races home and takes defensive responsibility also on the edges, if the defenders lose the ball high in the field. With the ball, he has also made great progress in the last year. Now he dares to hit long and early, has become more progressive in the passing choices and often stands for impressive, precise game turns.

That said, with the skills and range he has, he should have been more involved in scoring. After all, he is more of an eight, than a six, and often has the ball in good positions in the last third, says Karlsen.
