Real Madrid youngster is ‘crazy’ about the club, will be offered new contract – Romano
Speaking on The Here We Go Podcast, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Real Madrid are set to offer young midfielder Eduardo Camavinga a new contract imminently.
The 20-year-old starlet arrived at the club in the summer of 2021, joining from Rennes. Upon arrival, Camavinga signed a contract that runs until the summer of 2027.
Having made a slow start to life in the Spanish capital, the midfielder has come to the fore this season, especially since the turn of the year, and has become one of the permanent fixtures in Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Camavinga has performed well in multiple positions, be it as an interior midfielder, as a No. 6, or even as a makeshift left-back in recent weeks.
And, as per Romano, everyone at Real Madrid, including manager Ancelotti and president Florentino Perez are very happy with Camavinga.
The Italian journalist further adds that the midfielder himself loves the club and is crazy about the reigning champions of Spain and Europe.
And, Real Madrid are thus planning to offer Camavinga a new and improved contract soon. It has been reported that the midfielder is on the lower side of the salary scale at the club currently and will thus be offered an improved pay packet as part of the new deal.
Along with that, Los Blancos also intend to increase his release clause amount. Camavinga’s current release clause stands at €700 million and the plan is to increase it to €1 billion as per previous reports.
While plans to renew Camavinga are taking shape, Real Madrid are understood to have already tied down veteran midfielder Toni Kroos to a new one-year contract until 2024.
Furthermore, Luka Modric is also set to pen a new one-year deal, with negotiations expected to take place in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid have offered a three-year contract to 26-year-old Spanish midfielder
According to AS, Real Madrid have sent a three-year contract offer with improved wages to Dani Ceballos and trust that the midfielder will continue at the club.
Ceballos is the last among the seven Los Blancos’ stars who entered the 2022/23 season with an expiring contract whose future is yet to be resolved.
Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Karim Benzema have all left Real Madrid while Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Nacho Fernandez are all set to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu for one more year.
As such, Ceballos remains the only player whose future remains unclear at this point.
The 26-year-old Spanish international has shown that he can offer value to the team and the club and manager Carlo Ancelotti are understood to ‘love’ him and want to retain his services.
Fans, too, made their feelings about the midfielder very clear this past weekend when Real Madrid played Athletic Club, as they chanted ‘Ceballos, stay!’
The Merengues have sent in a three-year proposal to the former Real Betis ace which includes an improvement in his wages. As such, the club expect him to pen the deal and continue at the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, Ceballos is yet to make a decision as he is weighing up the fact that he will have to compete for a place with six other midfielders.
Indeed, Real Madrid already have Kroos, Modric, Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni as competition for Ceballos. Now, they will also add Jude Bellingham to the roster, further amping up the battle for places.
Ceballos has two more offers apart from the one from Real Madrid – one from Spain and Italy each, although his former club Real Betis have not sent a proposal yet.
With the season over and less than three weeks left on his contract, it remains to be seen what the Real Madrid ace decides.
