Eduardo Camavinga has already established himself as a starter at Real Madrid with his brilliant performances for the club, especially this year, in a variety of positions. That has led Carlo Ancelotti to even consider him above legends like Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in the midfield pecking order.
The 20-year-old Frenchman was signed from Rennes in the summer of 2021. He has produced many game-winning performances since. Early on in his career in the Spanish capital, he mostly came on as an impact substitute. But now, he is getting starting minutes consistently.
Camavinga even played as a full-back in a lot of the matches last season when the usual starters were out injured, giving his best even when playing out of his comfort zone. One could argue that it was this versatility that led to his rise up the pecking order.
This season he has started 6 out of the 8 games played so far. He is certainly proving his worth as well and has been solid in the middle of the park.
Fabrizio Romano drops brilliant Real Madrid contract news
As tweeted out by Fabrizio Romano, Camavinga is on the verge of extending his contract at Real Madrid. It is a matter of final details.
Real Madrid has a deal with Camavinga until the summer of 2027 but the team are believed to have been negotiating new terms with him for some time. The Frenchman has grown in prominence since after the 2022 World Cup, going from an option on the bench to a bonafide starter.
It looks like Real Madrid want to keep Camavinga happy at the club and keep away offers from other teams. Thus, the new deal will include a release clause as well as an increase in salary.
Real Madrid have the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Jude Bellingham and Fede Valverde too. So, they might have the best midfield in Europe for years to come.
