Sources close to the club have informed Barça Universal that Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has expressed his desire to wear the number 6 jersey next season. 

This request hinges on the potential departure of the current team captain, Nacho, who currently dons the number. If Nacho leaves, Camavinga is set to take over this number, which he also wears for the French national team in the European Championship.

Camavinga is preparing for a significant milestone in his career: his first Champions League final as a starter. With Aurelien Tchouameni unable to play, a spot has opened up for Camavinga, a role he has rightfully earned

Many Real Madrid fans have been advocating for his increased presence on the field, and this final will further solidify his position and showcase his undeniable talent.

Real Madrid admire Camavinga’s talent

Real Madrid have long viewed Camavinga as a crucial player for their future. This belief was cemented when he signed a contract extension in November 2023, which secures his place at the club until 2029 and includes a salary increase.

With this extension, Camavinga is now looking to change his jersey number for the upcoming season, particularly given the uncertain future of Nacho at the club.

It is said that the topic of Camavinga’s desired number is currently a hot discussion in the locker room. 

The player is very motivated by this change, as he is fond of the number 6 and respects the legacy it holds as it has been worn by Real Madrid legends such as Manolo Sanchis and Fernando Hierro.

Camavinga: A future leader

Within the team, everyone sees Camavinga as a key player for the club’s future. This sentiment is shared by the club president, Florentino Perez, who greatly admires Camavinga’s style of play. 

There is a strong belief that Camavinga will soon become a mainstay in the team, and wearing the number 6 jersey is seen as a step towards solidifying his role as a regular starter. 

Despite not always being in the starting lineup, Camavinga has the full confidence of the head coach, Carlo Ancelotti, and the rest of the coaching staff. 

Inheriting the number 6 jersey is not just a matter of tradition; it symbolises the expectations placed on Camavinga to contribute significantly to Real Madrid’s success. 

If all goes as planned, the young Frenchman will continue to rise as a star for the team, writing his own chapter in the storied history of Real Madrid.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
