Real Madrid signed Eduardo Camavinga in the summer of 2021 from Stade Rennais for around €30 million.

The player could not instantly find game time with the midfield packed with the likes of Toni Kroos, Casemiro, and Luka Modric, but became an integral player in Madrid’s run up to the Champions League and La Liga double last season.

He often came off the bench in the UCL as a super-sub to change the tempo of the game and add more control in the centre of the park. His performance against PSG, especially, changed the game for los blancos as they came back from 2-0 down to win the game on aggregate.

While his current contract expires in 2027, Real Madrid are already interested in getting him to sign an extension on a bigger salary and a longer deal.

Camavinga’s agent, Barnett, Jonathan Barnett, spoke about the player’s current stance in the Madrid squad.

“He wants to be at Real Madrid his entire life. There will be no problems with Madrid, we will sit down and I’m sure we will reach an agreement,” he said, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

Camavinga had some trouble finding a place for himself under Carlo Ancelotti this season, as Aurelien Tchouameni almost instantly took over from the departing Casemiro. He was restricted to minutes off the bench in the run up to the World Cup.

However, Tchouameni drop in form and the multiple injuries to Madrid’s team has meant that Camavinga is in the starting lineup more often. Sometimes, it is as a defensive midfielder, but he also covers positions in advanced midfield and left-back at times.

He was praised for his defensive aptitude against Barcelona’s in Madrid’s 0-4 win at the Camp Nou when he locked up Raphinha on the wing.

Florentino Perez is said to be a huge fan of the player, and wants to hand him an extension that will be headlined by a €1 billion release clause.

Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.

Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.

According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.

Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.

After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.

Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.

The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.

However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.

Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
