Kylian Mbappe has recently poured water over speculations on a potential move to Real Madrid future by confirming his desire to stay at Paris Saint-Germain next season. The attacker has suggested that he is happy at his current club, despite the departure of Lionel Messi.

Reacting to Mbappe’s tweet, Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has revealed that he had earlier teased the forward about coming to the Santiago Bernabeu. But he added Mbappe has made his decision, which should be respected.

“You have seen that he has already spoken. I have nothing to say. I would be very happy if he comes to Real Madrid,” said Camavinga (h/t RMC Sport). “I was the first to tease him [Mbappé], but the way I teased him stays between me and him.”

Camavinga went on to talk about the success he has achieved at Real Madrid at an early age. “I wouldn’t say I’m surprised because I came to Real to win trophies. You also have to win some trophies with the national team. You have to win as many trophies as possible in your football career,” he said.

Talking about the past season, Camavinga added, “I think I did a good part. I don’t think the first half of the season was that good, I gained more experience, and the most important thing is to play even if I don’t play at my preferred position.”

The former Stade Rennais youngster also talked about his competition with Aurelien Tchouameni in the Real Madrid first team, suggesting that the competition makes both players improve their game.

“It’s not something we talk about. The competition between us makes us improve,” he said.

Camavinga has been featured in 59 competitive matches this past season, but 17 of them have come in the left-back position.

Explaining his experience of playing the position, the youngster added, “It’s something that helps me gain experience and that’s the important thing.”

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
