Real Madrid want to sign Eduardo Camavinga, and it’s starting to sound more and more like a transfer is achievable.

Perhaps if there were no COVID-19-caused economic crisis in football, Real Madrid would have already signed Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes. But as it stands right now, arguably the world’s best midfield prospect is a Madrid target for the 2021 summer transfer window.

Camavinga has been solid this season in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, with his performances in the latter competition serving as a reminder to big clubs that the 18-year-old can already play at the highest level.

According to a report from Marco Ruiz of AS, Eduardo Camavinga’s new agent, the infamous Jonathan Barnett of Gareth Bale fame, sees “no better destination” for the midfielder than Real Madrid. And the report goes on to say that Camavinga is not interested in renewing his deal. His price has thus decreased from 80 million euros to 50 million euros.

We can’t read too much into transfer rumors in December, but these are encouraging signs for Real Madrid. Camavinga is already an effective player who can start matches for Los Blancos, and his future potential is that of the best midfielder in the world. He is seriously that good, and, per, he has the numbers to back it up with 1.8 key passes per game, 2.8 dribbles completed per match, and 1.5 interceptions and 1.5 tackles per contest in the Champions League group stage.

There are two keys in this report for Real Madrid fans to take away. Firstly, Barnett isn’t going to do anything unprofessional. Business his business. Fans may feel there is bad blood between Barnett and the club due to Bale, but Barnett is an effective agent doing what is best for his client. He will do what is best for Camavinga. Then secondly, the price. In this economy, Real Madrid can only sign a couple of top targets. Every cent counts. A decrease from 80 million to 50 million euros could be the difference between Real signing Camavinga and passing up the chance.
