France midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni has joined Real Madrid from Monaco, both clubs announced on Saturday
According to sources the 22-year-old has cost the Champions League and La Liga holders more than 80 million euros ($84 million) as well as an additional 20 million euros in bonuses
The former Bordeaux playmaker has won 11 caps since making his Les Bleus debut in September
"Real Madrid and Monaco have agreed on the transfer of the player Aurelien Tchouameni, who will be linked to the club for the next six seasons," they said.
Madrid have also signed Chelsea centre-back Antonio Ruediger ahead of the new season but missed out on Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe last month as he decided to stay in the French capital.
At Santiago Bernabeu, Tchouameni will team up with fellow French youngster in Eduardo Camavinga after the 19-year-old left Rennes for Madrid last summer.
Les Bleus striker Karim Benzema and left-back Ferland Mendy are also already at Madrid.
Tchouameni made his Bordeaux debut in 2018 before heading to the Principality in January 2020 for 20 million euros.
