Camavinga still a priority for Real Madrid

Despite it looking like the economic effects of the pandemic had put the brakes on Real Madrid‘s interest in Eduardo Camavinga, Los Blancos are still very keen on the Rennes midfielder.

The 18-year-old France international has been on Madrid’s radar for some time and they had looked the clear favourites to sign him at one point.

Economic concerns then made Los Blancos take a step back, while the player switching agents to join Jonathan Barnett, who represents Gareth Bale, threatened to complicate any potential deal.

After the disappointing Champions League exit to Chelsea, however, Real Madrid have decided that their midfield needs to be more dynamic and also requires an injection of power and strength and that Camavinga‘s profile would be a perfect fit.

The thinking at Madrid is that Camavinga‘s arrival wouldn’t threaten the progress of Antonio Blanco, either, who they see as having a different role.

Camavinga himself is known to be keen on Los Blancos, but there will be no shortage of competition in the race for his signature, with his agent talking up his potential this week and numerous clubs known to be preparing offers.

“He’s probably the best young player in the world and he’s just turned 18-years-old,” said Barnett.

“He’s younger than many others, he’s already played for France and he’s got himself in the squad without being a goalscorer.

He’s an incredible talent who could play for any team in the world.”

With Arsenal thought to be very interested and Bayern Munich viewed as one of the forerunners, Real Madrid’s worry is that they could be priced out of the market at this time.
