Speaking exclusively to Fabrizio Romano, Joshua Barnett, the agent of Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has dismissed the youngster’s links to Arsenal and Chelsea.

Camavinga has been at Real Madrid for more than 18 months now and even though he has had a few ups and down so far, the young midfielder is regarded as an important piece of the puzzle for the present and the future.

Carlo Ancelotti’s usage of the 20-year-old has led to some discontent, as the manager has taken off Camavinga at half-time on as many as seven occasions already.

Hoping to capitalise on the situation, Arsenal are said to have enquired about a loan deal for the Frenchman, while Chelsea, too, are understood to be monitoring the situation.

But, Barnett has dismissed the speculations of a loan exit, saying: “There’s no truth. Of course, every club in the world would want him, but he’s very happy in Real Madrid and Real Madrid are very happy with Camavinga.”

This update comes after Romano himself had earlier reported that Real Madrid have no intention whatsoever to let Camavinga leave the club this month.

As mentioned earlier, the Merengues see the 20-year-old former Rennes wonderkid as an important player for the immediate present as well as the future of the team.

Furthermore, Ancelotti & co. are uninterested in changing their squad until the end of the ongoing campaign.

So, as far as Arsenal and Chelsea are concerned, there is little to no scope for them to sign Camavinga on loan in the ongoing January transfer window.

Real Madrid defender on the radars of Juventus, could leave for €6-8 million

Real Madrid are looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.

Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.

The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.

The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.

Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.

The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.

Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
