Speaking to Telefoot1, Barcelona defender Jules Kounde has named Real Madrid youngster Eduardo Camavinga as the ‘most technical’ player in the French national team at the moment.

Despite his tender age, Camavinga is already making quite the wave in the footballing world. A former prodigy at Rennes, the 20-year-old midfielder joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2021 and has proven to be an excellent acquisition.

In his two years at the Santiago Bernabeu, Camavinga has already won the La Liga title, the UEFA Champions League, the Spanish Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup, the UEFA Super Cup, and the Copa del Rey.

The young midfielder was also part of the France national team that won the UEFA Nations League in 2021 and made it to the finals of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

A midfielder by trade, Camavinga has showcased great technical abilities. The Frenchman is good on the ball and can make driving runs forward to push his team upfield.

At the same time, this past season, fans got to see his defensive capabilities as well on occasions, with his trademark tackles being a thing that Madridistas cherish.

Given the quality and the ability he possesses, it is not a surprise that Kounde has chosen Camavinga as the ‘most technical’ player in the France national team.

However, the 20-year-old did cop some flak from another of his teammate, Randal Kolo Muani, albeit for his music choices.

The striker, who has been linked with Real Madrid, went on to name the midfielder as the ‘Worst DJ’ in the French NT, saying: “Camavinga. He puts on Brazilian songs ever since he started hanging out with Rodrygo.”

Despite the wealth of options in Real Madrid’s midfield unit next season, it is expected that Camavinga will be a regular starter for Carlo Ancelotti after his growth in the last couple of seasons.

Ferland Mendy finds himself in a difficult situation at Real Madrid. The Frenchman has struggled with injury and fitness woes for a large part of the past year, leading to doubts over his future at the club.

In fact, it had been reported that Los Blancos were considering selling Mendy during the summer transfer window earlier this year itself.

But, such a move did not materialise and the 28-year-old has stayed put at the Santiago Bernabeu although reports suggest that he is likely to be on the move next year.

Mendy would retire at Real Madrid if he could

Despite there having been numerous reports about his future in the summer, The Athletic reports that Mendy did not consider the possibility of an exit at any point.

In fact, the report adds that if given a chance, the 28-year-old defender would retire at Real Madrid.

Mendy’s contract with Los Merengues expires in 2025 and he is understood to be seeking a renewal for a while now, but there has been no move made by the club.

The injuries that the 28-year-old has picked up are understood to be a major deterrent for Real Madrid, which is why they are already looking to reinforce the left-back position with Alphonso Davies next year.

Despite the non-stop speculations surrounding him, Mendy continues to enjoy the full trust of manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Indeed, as per the report, the Italian tactician has informed the Frenchman that he is the left-back that best fits the defensive requirements needed in the team.

Ancelotti’s decision to bench Fran Garcia in the UEFA Champions League game even though Mendy was unavailable and start David Alaba at left-back was taken as an indicator within the dressing room that the Frenchman remains the first-choice in the position.

So, it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds over the coming months, especially with Ancelotti’s future also uncertain as his contract expires in 2024.
