Eduardo Camavinga’s rise to prominence at Real Madrid has been the breaking story of Los Blancos’ 2022-23 campaign. Not only is the youngster the team’s most improved player but grabs that title by some distance.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana, Camavinga is in talks to renew his contract with Real Madrid. The journalist further adds that Florentino Perez is unhappy with the way the youngster is being used and wishes to see him more in midfield than as a left-back.

One falls short for words in praise of the French protege this season, not only for his sheer tenacity on the field but the flair he brings with him. His ability to carry the ball forward is an elite skillset and his versatility makes him the complete package.

Camavinga’s inspiring displays in the middle of the park have seen him overtake Aurelien Tchouameni in the pecking order. In an ideal world, he would be an undisputed starter in the Merengues‘ midfield. Ferland Mendy’s repeated injuries, however, complicate his situation. 

The 20-year-old’s ability to cover the left-back position solidly has him bound to the defensive role, but that cannot continue to be the case next season. Unsurprisingly, the left-back department is one of Los Blancos’ priorities for June.

Camavinga already has a contract with Real Madrid that runs until the summer of 2027. The club wish to add more years to his deal, improve his salary, and release clause amount to fend off any potential interest that could sprout from top European clubs.

The youngster possesses an unreal zeal to succeed in the Spanish capital and recently came out in an interview to talk about his growth as a player. A brief glance at Camavinga’s mature and drive-filled answers in itself shows why Real Madrid cannot let him go.

“I have an app to see how many times and where I touched the ball during the game. I always self-criticise and try to improve. If they say I had a good game but I think I did not, then I consider it a bad match,” he said as part of the same interaction.

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.
