Real Madrid handed a big boost in pursuit to sign Camavinga

Real Madrid has been handed a major boost in their pursuit to sign Eduardo Camavinga of Rennes. Can Los Blancos sign him this summer?

Despite the midfield core of Real Madrid aging as the average age amongst Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro is 31.3 years-old, the midfield still continues to perform at the highest level. Zinedine Zidane also has a well-balanced bench to make use of when it comes to squad rotations as the likes of Federico Valverde, Isco and Martin Odegaard can provide several options in the midfield.

Although Real Madrid has several midfielders on their squad rooster, Los Blancos lack a natural young central-midfielder as Federico Valverde is the only one amongst Martin Odegaard and Isco who are attacking-midfielders. An injury to either Toni Kroos/Luka Modric along with Federico Valverde could put Zinedine Zidane into a tight spot.

Having said that, the 2019/20 La Liga champions have identified Eduardo Camavinga as a potential signing next summer to rebuild and provide options to their midfield. The young Frenchman can play as a central-midfielder, box to box midfielder, and a central defensive midfielder. His passing range, vision, and decision making are beyond exceptional for an 18-year-old.

Reports from Todo Fichajes have stated that Real Madrid has been handed a major boost in their bid to sign Camavinga. A few weeks ago, the 18-year-old midfielder had joined forces with Jonathan Barnet who is widely known and recognised as Gareth Bale’s agent. Barnet shares a rather infamous reputation amongst the fans of Los Blancos because of his statements when questioned about his client’s treatment at the Santiago Bernabeu by Zinedine Zidane.

However, despite the controversy between Bale and Zidane. Jonathan Barnet shares no bad blood with the club.

“We have an excellent relationship with Real Madrid. Ask them”

“We have a great relationship and we will work closely with Eduardo’s father and family, especially for the player. The most important thing is to act in your best interest

Barnet’s statements have come as a sigh of relief to many supporters of the Royal Whites. The French midfielder is now valued at 60 million euros on the transfer market and that is the price that Real Madrid would have to splurge next summer to get their target man.
