This is particularly the case with the Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo, or with the Frenchman and former Rennais Eduardo Camavinga. Arriving in Madrid in August 2021, the midfielder, who can help out as a left-back, won over his coach, Carlo Ancelotti. In front of the media, the Italian notably affirmed recently that Eduardo Camavinga was “at the moment at a very good level”. In Real Madrid’s very competitive midfield, the former Stade Rennes player is doing very well, with 41 appearances this season (for 1 assist).
According to information from Report, the management of the Spanish club, which faces FC Barcelona this Sunday in La Liga, would like to extend the contract of Eduardo Camavinga, while his current lease ends in 2027. Real Madrid’s primary goal is to significantly increase the release clause of the 20-year-old Frenchman, currently set at 700 million euros. It could reach one billion, like Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Eder Militão. Then, the tricolor international would see his salary increase significantly.
What a bonus for Eduardo Camavinga, whose future seems all mapped out.
Hojlund, youth bonus?
That of Rasmus Hojlund, on the other hand, seems more uncertain. The Danish striker plays for Atalanta Bergamo and has had a great season (13 goals in 32 appearances, 5 assists). Something to interest the Madrid club, according to Mundo Deportivo. Real Madrid are indeed insistently seeking to find the perfect replacement for Karim Benzema (35), while Englishman Harry Kane (Tottenham) is being considered, like many others.
Recruited for 17 million in August 2022 by Atalanta, Rasmus Hojland could bring big money to 6th in Serie A, in the event of a transfer at the end of the season. The Spanish club would indeed be open to the idea of going up to 40 million euros for the Danish international (2 selections).
