Eduardo Camavinga was Real Madrid’s breakthrough player last season. The youngster rapidly rose to prominence and is now one of the fundamental pieces of Carlo Ancelotti’s dynamics.
According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, Florentino Perez, Carlo Ancelotti and all the players of the team love the French star. There is no intention of selling Camavinga despite the rumours going around.
The youngster has not yet signed a contract renewal with the club, but everything is in place for the formal signing to be completed in the coming days. From the player’s side, he does not contemplate any option other than renewing with the club of his dreams.
The 20-year-old sensation has a deal with Real Madrid that runs until the summer of 2027. Los Blancos hope to improve his release clause to €1 billion and offer him a higher payscale on his new contract.
Camavinga participated in 37 of Real Madrid’s league games last season, scoring one goal and providing two assists. Yet, one should note that most of his contributions on the field came at left-back last season given the manager’s lack of options to replace Ferland Mendy.
Unlike the 2022-23 campaign, the youngster will be a regular in midfield in the coming season. In fact, the manager sees the French protege as a regular starter irrespective of the formation he opts for, given his versatile skillset.
The former Rennes starlet spent the final phase of his vacations at Rio de Janeiro with Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes. The trio also linked up with their fitness coaches in the process to prepare themselves for the long season ahead and are expected to join the rest of the squad later this week.
French midfielder admits considering PSG move before Real Madrid called him
Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.
However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”
“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.
The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.
Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.
Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid
Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.
Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.
Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.
The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
