Real Madrid to offer a new deal with €1bn release clause to starlet who Perez ‘loves’

There was never a doubt that Eduardo Camavinga was a special talent. However, the Frenchman took some time to adapt and develop at Real Madrid after joining the club in the summer of 2021.

The 20-year-old midfielder was not a regular last season, but played his part in the latter stages to help Los Blancos win La Liga and the UEFA Champions League.

And in the current campaign, the young starlet has grown into a much more pivotal part of the team, especially post the World Cup break when Aurelien Tchouameni’s levels have dropped slightly.

Camavinga has shone brightly operating in his preferred No. 6 role, while the youngster has also filled in at left-back when needed for the team. With his talent and quality now starting to come to the fore, Real Madrid officials are delighted with his progress, with manager Carlo Ancelotti also showing greater faith in him.

Such has been the impression that Camavinga has made of late that according to journalist Jorge C Picon, Real Madrid are ready to offer a new and improved contract to the former Rennes wonderkid.

Despite his talent and potential, the 20-year-old is one of the lowest earners at the Santiago Bernabeu. And, the club want to address that and offer him an improved contract reflecting his growing status and influence within the team.

Camavinga’s current contract with Los Blancos runs until the summer of 2027, but they intend to increase the duration of that and offer him higher wages.

At the same time, the Spanish capital club are also planning to increase Camavinga’s release clause amount from €700 million to €1 billion.

The report further adds that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez ‘loves’ Camavinga and wants to hand him a new and improved contract to ward off any suitors for the French youngster.

Prior to the Liverpool clash this week, manager Ancelotti went on to call Camavinga an ‘untouchable’ in the team for the present and the future.

“Camavinga is very important. In the last game, he made obvious mistakes, but by playing so well he makes you forget all the bad things. Against Espanyol, he made a very big mistake, but then he played a very good game. He is untouchable now and in the future,” he had said.

It seems the sentiment is echoed by Real Madrid officials as well and a new contract for the youngster is on the horizon, with initial talks already taking place.

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal and Barcelona goalkeeper Arnau Tenas were involved in a heated altercation following the latter’s 2-1 win in the recent El Clasico.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Madrid defender was seen saying something provocatory to the Barcelona keeper in the aftermath of the game.

Tenas was walking towards his teammates, who were celebrating the win in a huddle. The 21-year-old was interrupted by the Madrid defender who put his hand around the stopper’s neck while pointing his index finger towards him.

While it is unclear what Carvajal actually said to the keeper, the words worked their way like a sword as the young keeper looked extremely angry. Thankfully, Jordi Alba was attentive to the situation and rushed towards the players.

While Carvajal was seen walking back to the dressing room, Tenas had to be controlled by the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Thibaut Courtois and Ronald Araujo and the likes of Alba and Carlos Naval, the Barça delegate, asked the Madrid defender not to inflame the situation further.

There is simply no love lost between Carvajal and Tenas and it remains to be seen how the two will greet each other when Real Madrid and Barcelona cross paths once again in three week’s time, this time in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final at Camp Nou. It must be remembered that Madrid are trailing the tie 0-1.

As for the recent fixture, Madrid were once again beaten by Barcelona despite taking an early lead through Araujo’s own goal.

The Blaugrana got back into the game through Sergi Roberto’s goal before Franck Kessie, whose attempt in injury time found the bottom corner, sealed the win for his team.
