While Real Madrid bit their nails in the final hours of the transfer window and hoped for the completion of Killian Ambape’s deal, the Blancos have actually announced the signing of another Frenchman: Eduardo Camavinga. The young French midfielder was bought from Maran for 30 million euros and is set to be the successor to veteran midfielder Luca Modric and Tony Cross.
“My move to Real Madrid was quick,” Camavinga said in a first interview with the Spanish media, “I am very proud to play here, it is a dream come true. I am now returning to Ran to pack my things and start a journey in Madrid.”
“Playing for Real Madrid is a dream I had as a child,” the midfielder added, “I can no longer wait to discover the great Bernabeu Stadium in front of the amazing Real Madrid crowd.”
Camavinga is only 18 years old, but has already managed to become the youngest player to play for France’s senior team, he has made three appearances in the media. He recorded a total of 71 appearances for Rann’s senior team and scored two goals.
