There has been a lot of noise over the future of Eduardo Camavinga lately. The young midfielder has struggled to get regular game-time at Real Madrid and is yet to establish himself as a proper starter under Carlo Ancelotti.

Camavinga’s struggles had led to speculations over his long-term future at Santiago Bernabeu, with reports suggesting that Arsenal are interested in signing the 20-year-old on a loan deal until the end of the season.

But transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has poured water over those speculations, suggesting that Real Madrid have no intention to offload their star midfielder, even on a loan deal this January.

According to Romano, the Real Madrid board want Camavinga to stay at the Bernabeu as they consider him a critical player, even though he has yet to establish himself as a regular starter in the team.

The transfer expert states that the Merengues consider a key part of the team for the present and the future and there is absolutely no chance of them changing their stance on his future. Furthermore, he adds that all parties are denying the speculations of a loan exit.

This comes after Camavinga’s agent made it clear that the midfielder would not be going anywhere this month, as he said:

“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.”

Formerly of Rennes, Camavinga has featured in 67 competitive matches for Real Madrid since joining the club in the summer of 2021.

But in the current season, the 20-year-old has amassed only six starts in La Liga. It appears he has fallen behind his compatriot and new signing Aurelien Tchouameni in the pecking order, whereas coach Carlo Ancelotti has continued to rely on the services of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.

However, there are indications that Camavinga may still have a future at Santiago Bernabeu. This is because the club are soon set to deal with the departures of veteran midfielders Kroos and Modric, both of who are currently in the final phase of their respective careers.

Real Madrid have targeted Jude Bellingham in an attempt to replace one of the two. But that is unlikely to alter Camavinga’s role in the team, as the club look to revolve their new-look midfield unit around young players such as Camavinga, Tchouameni, and possibly Bellingham.

Harry Kane’s signing could complicate Real Madrid’s plan to sign Erling Haaland in 2024

Those sitting in the Real Madrid offices are aware that the team needs an emergency number 9. In this context, manager Carlo Ancelotti has already affirmed that they are working on some targets, although he decided not to reveal any names.

Now, what makes this operation trickier is that Madrid already have Erling Haaland on their agenda. The Manchester City forward is billed for the summer of 2024, meaning that any signing Madrid make this year will be extremely short-term.

A couple of days back, we reported that Ancelotti has made the signing of Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane his priority. The manager is of the idea that the England international will be the ideal candidate to provide competition to Benzema, whose physical fitness is now deteriorating.

As far as Kane is concerned, the Tottenham forward is rightly expected to leave and fellow Premier League side Manchester United happen to be interested in his acquisition as well.

It is not really difficult for Madrid to sign Kane, but the fact that Madrid already have Haaland in their plans is a problem, reports AS. At 29 years of age, Kane is not someone who would step down from his starting role when Haaland arrives. 

Add to it the continuity of Benzema is yet another issue. All this means there is a high possibility that if Kane arrives, the team will overbook the number 9 position.

At the moment, there is a parade of names that Madrid are following, namely, Goncalo Ramos, Dusan Vlahovic and even Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, but nothing is certain at the moment.

What Madrid need is a short-term option, someone who is either willing to settle for a secondary role, even when Benzema leave/retires or is ready to come on a season-long loan to cover the position until Madrid sign Haaland in 2024. Either way, Harry Kane does not fit the bill.
