Tottenham Hotspur are willing to splurge 80 million euros next summer to steal Real Madrid’s prime target from France
Tottenham Hotspur has had one of the most successful transfer windows in the Premier League. The Lilywhites managed to make an upgrade at almost every position that was required and acquired a few players on loan as well to serve as temporary solutions to problems that the manager, Jose Mourinho plans on fixing in the future.
According to reports, the 57-year-old is interested in bringing Real Madrid’s prime target for next year Eduardo Camavinga, to the North-London side. The 17-year-old who plays currently for Ligue 1 side Stade Rennes has made headlines due to his exceptional displays of quality, that too at such a young age. Playing the role of a central defensive midfielder, the Frenchman possesses great footwork and attacking capabilities while holding his own when required to defend facing attacks.
Due to this, Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane decided to make the youngster a primary target for next year’s transfer window. According to Zizou, Camavinga would make a perfect replacement for Casmemiro and would play very nicely in his usual tactics of squad rotation. Although there happen to be a lot more teams participating in the race to sign the young prodigy, Los Blancos have been the favorites, but that might set to change with Tottenham entering the race.
The key turning point happens to be the fee that the English side are willing to dish out to bring in the France international. Spurs are reportedly open to splurging 80 million euros to bring in Camavinga, which would make them a force to reckon with for the Merengues. Also, the 17-year-old would play a much more important role in Mourinho’s squad being a first choice player rather than fighting for his place amongst Real’s illustrious midfield.
The Frenchman’s future would certainly not be in Ligue 1 as he is set to leave next season, and it would be interesting to see whether Zidane would have a befitting reply to Tottenham Hotspur’s efforts to nab their priority signing.
