Another Tchouameni for 15 kilos
The sale of Aurélien Tchouaméni for 80 million euros to Real Madrid was, without a doubt, a hard blow for Monaco. The midfielder was the backbone of the Monegasques last season and his absence seemed irreparable. The sports management of the clubled by Paul Mitchell, used to making big signings for an affordable price, decided to invest 15 million in Mohamed Camará, a 20-year-old midfielder from Salzburg who came from marveling last year in the Champions League.
The impact of the Malian has been immediate in Monaco. He debuted last week against Lens and, although the northerners thrashed Clement’s men 1-4, his entrance in the second half gave the team a breath of fresh air. In his first start, this Sunday against PSG at the Parc des Princes, Camará was clearly one of the men of the matchcontaining the double Parisian pivot formed by Verratti and Sanches and being a nightmare for Galtier’s men thanks to his great ability to beat lines while driving and get away with rival pressure with his refined technique.
Camará held, along with Youssouf Fofana, another young midfielder for whom Monaco will surely make a lot of money in the coming years, the midfield of his team. Messi, Neymar and Mbappé went unnoticed for a long time and that was, in part, due to the physical superiority he showed and his excellent ability to steal balls. Although he is not a profile similar to Tchouaméni, Camará is a player who has more than enough conditions to make the new Real Madrid player forget.
Such was his performance the newspaper L’Equipe included him in the eleven of matchday 4 of Ligue 1giving him a more than remarkable score of 8 and highlighting the speed of his legs to steal balls and, in addition, to avoid rivals while driving. The 15 million that Monaco disbursed to take over his services seem even cheap in view of the performance that he can show throughout the entire season.
