Eduardo Camavinga has been silently making a name for himself in the Real Madrid first team lately. After facing immense criticism for his relative lack of progress, the youngster has performed admirably well since the turn of the year.

A recent report from AS has offered a detailed update on Camavinga’s role in the Real Madrid squad, suggesting that Carlo Ancelotti has put added faith in the midfielder in recent matches. It also claims that club are delighted with the progress shown by the youngster.

The former Rennes starlet has not disappointed either, which was evident in his performance against Liverpool last night. While the midfielder featured in the first leg due to the absence of Aurelien Tchouameni, he was given the start once again in the second leg.

This was seen as a clear message from Ancelotti to the rest of the team, indicating that the Italian manager has great faith in Camavinga.

The Frenchman was indeed one of the top performers for Real Madrid in their 1-0 victory over Liverpool last night. Starting as a defensive midfielder, he held possession pretty well and orchestrated the game, ultimately allowing Toni Kroos and Luka Modric to form a solid combination in the middle of the park.

Camavinga’s good performances in the defensive midfield position have not gone unnoticed by the club’s coaching staff. Although the Frenchman was signed as a number eight, his ability to play in the defensive midfield role has led many to compare him with Casemiro.

Not to mention, the youngster had earlier played as a left-back for Real Madrid, in the absence of players such as David Alaba and Ferland Mendy.

His improved performances, coupled with his versatility are few of the reasons why the midfielder has started in 15 of Real Madrid’s last 16 matches. It is also an indicator of his improved role in the team.

Real Madrid ‘like’ Juventus star as a possible option to reinforce key position

It has been a difficult season for Juventus, who are staring at the possibility of missing out on the Champions League next season. Thanks to a 15-point deduction earlier in the campaign, the club are dawdling in mid-table places and look certain to miss out on the top four.

Missing out on UCL action could be devastating for Juventus and may even lead to the departure of one of the star players in the form of Dusan Vlahovic.

According to AS, Real Madrid are aware of this situation and are sensing a market opportunity to sign the Serbian international ahead of the new season.

It is no secret that the Spanish giants are in the market for a new striker next season. Although star player Karim Benzema is likely to renew his contract, the forward has struggled with fitness woes this season.

It has accentuated the need for a new number nine. Real Madrid have invested heavily in Brazilian whizkid Endrick, but he will not be eligible to join the club until 2024.

Therefore, the club are looking for a new option, with Vlahovic emerging as one of the desired targets.

Formerly of Fiorentina, Vlahovic has netted 20 goals in less than 50 competitive appearances for Juve. He is known for his physical and aerial prowess, but what makes him such an appealing target for Real Madrid is his ability to sniff goalscoring opportunities.

Vlahovic himself might want to jump ship and join Real Madrid, especially with the opportunity to become the club’s main number nine looming large.

But with Real Madrid also planning on investing heavily on Jude Bellingham to strengthen their midfield, it remains to be seen if they would be willing to splash the cash on Vlahovic’s signing as well.
