The rise of Eduardo Camavinga at Real Madrid has been meteoric this season. From a state of relative oblivion, the youngster has become one of Ancelotti’s most improved players.

According to reports from AS, Camavinga has become indispensable to Carlo Ancelotti and is an untouchable member in the squad. His exclusion against Atletico Madrid was purely because he is a regular starter and required rest.

The Frenchman’s rise this season began when Aurelien Tchouameni was ruled out through injury, forcing the manager to look for alternate options in midfield. Camavinga popped into the equation and changed the perception fans and the management had of him.

Over the next few weeks, the youngster delivered flawless performances as the defensive midfielder in Ancelotti’s setup. From that point till now, he continues to be one of the manager’s more used options in the position.

In recent weeks after Ferland Mendy’s injury, the youngster has come to use as an able left-back. Needless to say, it is his versatility that makes him such a valuable option for the Italian tactician.

The 20-year-old has started 23 league games for Real Madrid this season and has provided one assist in the process. In addition to around one key pass, he averages close to eight defensive actions per game.

With Aurelien Tchouameni back fit and raring, it remains to be seen as to how Ancelotti manages Camavinga’s game time now. There are reports that the manager hopes to attempt playing both French proteges together in midfield.

Camavinga is expected to start when Real Madrid take on Barcelona in the semifinal of the Copa del Rey on Thursday night, although the question remains as to where he will play.

It has been a difficult season for Juventus, who are staring at the possibility of missing out on the Champions League next season. Thanks to a 15-point deduction earlier in the campaign, the club are dawdling in mid-table places and look certain to miss out on the top four.

Missing out on UCL action could be devastating for Juventus and may even lead to the departure of one of the star players in the form of Dusan Vlahovic.

According to AS, Real Madrid are aware of this situation and are sensing a market opportunity to sign the Serbian international ahead of the new season.

It is no secret that the Spanish giants are in the market for a new striker next season. Although star player Karim Benzema is likely to renew his contract, the forward has struggled with fitness woes this season.

It has accentuated the need for a new number nine. Real Madrid have invested heavily in Brazilian whizkid Endrick, but he will not be eligible to join the club until 2024.

Therefore, the club are looking for a new option, with Vlahovic emerging as one of the desired targets.

Formerly of Fiorentina, Vlahovic has netted 20 goals in less than 50 competitive appearances for Juve. He is known for his physical and aerial prowess, but what makes him such an appealing target for Real Madrid is his ability to sniff goalscoring opportunities.

Vlahovic himself might want to jump ship and join Real Madrid, especially with the opportunity to become the club’s main number nine looming large.

But with Real Madrid also planning on investing heavily on Jude Bellingham to strengthen their midfield, it remains to be seen if they would be willing to splash the cash on Vlahovic’s signing as well.
