On Friday night, reports emerged claiming that Arsenal were plotting a loan move for Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga in the ongoing January transfer window.

The Gunners have been very active in the market of late, having signed Leandro Trossard while also pushing for the captures of Jakub Kiwior and Ivan Fresneda. And Camavinga, too, has emerged as a possible target for Mikel Arteta’s Premier League leaders.

However, according to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid have no intention whatsoever to let Camavinga leave the club this month.

The Italian journalist adds that Los Blancos intend to continue with the same squad at least until the end of the season. He further adds that the club retain total faith in Camavinga and see him as an important player for the present and the future.

This coincides with claims from COPE (h/t Madrid Xtra), which state that the reigning Spanish and European champions see the 20-year-old youngster as ‘untouchable’ and have no desire to let him leave the club midway through the season, even if it would be only on a loan deal.

Real Madrid signed Camavinga in the summer of 2021 from Rennes but manager Carlo Ancelotti was very measured and cautious in his usage of the youngster in his debut season.

But, the young Frenchman made some valuable contributions towards the end of the 2021/22 campaign, helping Real Madrid win La Liga and the UEFA Champions League.

Camavinga, however, has seen his game-time continue to be restricted this season as well. Even when he has started, Ancelotti has been quick to take the 20-year-old off. The Italian tactician has subbed the midfielder off at half-time on as many as seven occasions already.

With Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Federico Valverde ahead of him in the pecking order, Arsenal are looking to capitalise on his situation by taking him on loan.

The report from COPE clarifies that Real Madrid do not intend to let Camavinga leave, while also stating that they have not received any request from Arsenal for the 20-year-old either.

So, there will be no exit for the Frenchman this month as Real Madrid look to successfully defend their domestic and European titles.

Brazil not giving up on pursuit of Ancelotti: “Haven’t thrown in the towel yet”

Speaking to the media, Brazil Football Confederations (CBF) president Ednaldo Rodrigues has claimed that the Selecao have not given up on their pursuit of Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, despite the Italian stating that he will not leave the club.

Brazil have been without a manager since the World Cup in Qatar last year, following which Tite stepped down. The CBF have made Ancelotti their top target and have been pursuing his signing for months but to no avail.

The 63-year-old Italian tactician has, on more than one occasion, made it clear that he will be at Real Madrid next season, with his contract expiring in 2024.

However, CBF president Rodrigues is adamant that Ancelotti’s statements are due to him being cautious as he is under contract at Real Madrid and that the Selecao are not prepared to give up on their quest to appoint him as of yet.

“We made a plan, that ‘Plan A’ is the one you know, Ancelotti, and as they say in the ‘ring’ (boxing), I haven’t thrown in the towel yet,” Rodrigues said (h/t Mundo Deportivo).

“Because of contracts, people are cautious,” he added.

Ancelotti, for his part, has repeatedly stated that he does not intend to leave Real Madrid unless he is forced out of the club.

Despite missing out on the La Liga and the UEFA Champions League titles last season, the club continue to back the veteran Italian and are planning for next season with him in charge.

So, despite Rodrigues’ confidence and perseverance, it is extremely unlikely that Ancelotti will be leaving Real Madrid for Brazil this summer.
