Journalist Mario Cortegana has reported via The Athletic that Tottenham Hotspur veteram Hugo Lloris was offered to Real Madrid by his agent, but the profile of the former French international did not convince the club management.

Real Madrid recently completed the signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga from Chelsea on a season-long loan, capturing the Spanish stopper right from the jaws of Bayern Munich.

The star goalkeeper was diagnosed with a rupture of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament in his left knee and will be needing surgery to overcome the problem.

Madrid considered several options

Real Madrid considered several options before eventually deciding on Kepa.

As such, former Manchester United keeper David de Gea was said the be a serious contender and even Lloris was discussed within the management but as it turns out, none of the Premier League veterans convinced the board.

As for De Gea, who is said to have a lucrative offer from a Saudi League, was never really contacted. As reported before, Madrid never approached De Gea and never called him about a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Lloris, on the other hand, is set to leave Tottenham after 11 long years. The 36-year-old is being chased by several top teams, including Lazio.

Considering the fact that Madrid only needed a safe pair of hands for one season, the French World Cup winner was, in fact, discussed.

To top it off, even the keeper was offered to Real Madrid by an agent, but the board settled with a common idea that his profile does not really suit the team.

The team eventually chose Kepa and the stopper’s transfer was all wrapped up in just a couple of days.

In a big development, Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Real Madrid midfield sensation Eduardo Camavinga is on the verge of signing a new contract with the club.

The French international has been at the club since 2021, when he was signed from Rennes, and has grown into a vital member of Carlo Ancelotti’s setup.

Camavinga’s performances over the past year have been tremendous and the Frenchman is now one of the permanent fixtures in midfield even ahead of veterans like Luka Modric and Toni Kroos this season.

Only final details pending

Camavinga’s contract with Real Madrid runs until the summer of 2027, but the club have been working on offering him a new deal for a while now.

And now, Romano is reporting that the 20-year-old midfield prodigy is on the cusp of penning a renewal, with only the final details of the agreement left to be ironed out.

Camavinga’s new contract is set to come with a wage increase as well as a release clause as Real Madrid wish to ‘protect’ the player and avoid overtures from other clubs.

Key for the present and the future

Romano further outlines that Real Madrid see Camavinga as a key part of the club’s plans for the present and the future.

The 20-year-old midfield sensation loves the Merengues and the club too loves the young talent who has made rapid strides in the time that he has been there.

Some other reports in Spain suggest that Camavinga’s agent is already in the capital city to finalise the renewal agreement.

So, as things stand, Camavinga is set to sign a new contract with Real Madrid with a bigger salary and release clause.

The 20-year-old will form the core of the team for the present and the future along with fellow youngsters like Jude Bellingham, Aurelien Tchouameni, Vinicius Jr., and Rodrygo Goes, among others.
