Eduardo Camavinga has quickly grown into one of Real Madrid’s most important players. The youngster upped the ante last season and is now considered a regular starter for the Merengues.
On Tuesday, reports suggested that the Frenchman had signed a new deal with the club that would see him at Santiago Bernabeu until 2028. The new terms included a €1 billion release clause and a higher wage to put him on par with the rest of the squad.
In his latest update, Fabrizio Romano reveals that Camavinga’s renewal is still not completed. Given the player’s desire to stay and the administration’s faith in him, however, it is only a matter of time.
Negotiations are continuing in the right direction, but a complete agreement is yet to be reached. Developments are thus expected in the coming days.
Needless to say, there is no panic at the club offices surrounding Camavinga’s situation. The player desires to wear no other colours, and the new deal is just a reflection of the great expectations Real Madrid have for him.
The 20-year-old made 37 La Liga appearances for Los Blancos last season, providing two assists and scoring one goal in the process. He completed the season with over 91% of his passes completed and close to nine defensive actions per game.
A big portion of his participation last season, however, came as a left-back. The Frenchman did superbly to cover in Ferland Mendy’s absence, but Carlo Ancelotti plans on using him in midfield next season.
Camavinga is thus expected to be a regular starter in the middle of the park and one of the first names on the team sheet. Given the steep competition, however, he will have to be at his best to hold onto his regular place.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
