Earlier today, Real Madrid confirmed the latest on their spree of contract renewals at the club. After Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo Goes, the Merengues announced that Eduardo Camavinga had extended his deal with them until 2029.
The development was coming a long time, especially considering the youngster’s consistency and quality on the field. With his new deal comes an improved salary and release clause.
Camavinga’s agent comments on the renewal
The French prodigy’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, spoke to El Chiringuito after the announcement of his client’s renewal and expressed his joy over the development.
“It’s fantastic. It’s a dream for everybody, he loves Real Madrid,” he said when asked about Camavinga’s feelings.
He also admitted as part of the interaction that Camavinga intended to stay at Real Madrid for his entire career.
“For sure, he wants to stay in Madrid all his life,” he said when asked about his client’s long-term continuity.
Jack of all trades
Camavinga initially signed for Real Madrid as one of football’s brightest upcoming talents in midfield. However, he has now established himself as a handy utility player for Carlo Ancelotti.
Apart from his natural position, the youngster often plays as a left-back to cover for the department’s defensive deficiencies.
Currently, he is covering for Aurelien Tchouameni in the defensive midfield after his compatriot suffered a foot fracture after El Clasico.
So far this season, the 20-year-old has already recorded 12 league starts for Real Madrid averaging over 50 minutes per game.
In that duration, he has provided one key pass and made close to ten defensive actions per game.
Camavinga is expected to start tomorrow once again when Los Blancos take on Braga in Madrid. Needless to say, his future at the club looks bright.
Official: Real Madrid starting lineup against Napoli | UCL GW 5
Real Madrid are back in the Champions League following their impressive win against Cadiz on the weekend as they host Napoli at the Santiago Bernabeu for gameweek five.
They have already secured qualification to the round of 16, and even a point today would secure first place in the group.
With several players still injured, Carlo Ancelotti has opted for his best available starting lineup, with Daniel Carvajal taking responsibility of the captain’s armband at right-back. He will be aided by Ferland Mendy, who starts on the other side.
Meanwhile, in between them, David Alaba returns to the fold as the starting centre-back, partnering Antonio Rudiger. This duo has the responsibility of screening Andriy Lunin, who continues in goal in Kepa and Thibaut Courtois’ absence.
With both Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni out, Toni Kroos gets the chance to play as the holding midfielder for two games in a row. Federico Valverde retains his spot, as well, while Dani Ceballos comes in for the injured Luka Modric in central midfield.
Rodrygo will spearhead the team’s frontline as one of the two twin forwards, while Brahim Diaz gets the nod over Joselu. Jude Bellingham is the final, and arguably the most important piece of the puzzle, playing behind the front-two.
Confirmed Madrid XI: Lunin; Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Mendy; Valverde, Kroos, Ceballos; Bellingham; Diaz, Rodrygo
