As the 2021-22 season progressed deeper, Eduardo Camavinga began to rise into prominence under Carlo Ancelotti. The youngster capitalised on his chances coming off the bench and slowly proved to the manager that he deserved a starting spot.

Real Madrid see him as a regular member of the starting lineup for at least the next decade. Given that Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are already at the fag end of their careers, it is but natural that Camavinga’s importance has seen a bigger spike this period.

The youngster spoke to AS earlier this week where he touched upon topics including his footballing idols and his behind-the-scenes friendships at Real Madrid.

On his football idols: “I’ve learned a lot from Modric and Kroos. Not only what they do on the pitch but also what they do off the pitch: playing sports after training, resting. These are things that I apply to myself because they’re good for me.”

On playing for Real Madrid: “Playing for Real Madrid has been my dream since I was little. It’s the best club in the world and when they came to sign me I did not doubt that I wanted to come.” 

On his dressing room relations: “I’m an extrovert, I talk to anyone. My adaptation has been easy and fast. My best friends are the French, but I speak to everyone. A little more with Tchouameni, Rüdiger, Benzema or Alaba”

On Carlo Ancelotti: “Ancelotti is a person who talks a lot with all his players. Whether I’m a starter or a substitute, he always gives me a lot of confidence.”

On his attitude towards the game: “I’m the same as 3 years ago. I’m a smart boy who will not lose his head for success. I’m a smiling guy, a Sun. I would only change my right leg: it’s very bad!”

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
