Eduardo Camavinga was one of Real Madrid’s main protagonists as Los Blancos secured a double, including the club’s 15th Champions League title.

After helping Real Madrid enjoy a fruitful campaign, Camavinga has now embarked on a journey to Germany, where he will play a key role in France’s midfield for the upcoming European Championship.

Camavinga, though, has lately faced criticism for his performances, especially with the French national team.

In a recent presser, Camavinga was even asked about his subdued performances for the French national team.

The Real Madrid star staunchly defended himself, adding that he is part of the French national team because of his quality.

“Haven’t I had any important game with Les Bleus in midfield? Since when? I was terrible for a year? I’m not frustrated,” Camavinga said (h/t Diario SPORT).

The midfielder went on to explain his position in Les Bleus setup while also acknowledging that there is much competition in midfield.

“If I’m here it’s because I have qualities in midfield. If you haven’t seen it, it’s you. There’s a lot of competition and you have to accept it. I’ve played some good games in midfield with the French team,” he said.

Camavinga featured as a late substitute in France’s 3-0 win over Luxembourg in a friendly. It was a game where his future teammate Kylian Mbappe produced a superb performance, notably racking up a goal and a couple of assists.

The Real Madrid midfielder will look to play a more important role in France gears up for the last friendly against Canada, before Les Bleus kick off their Euro 2024 campaign on June 16.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
