Rising star Eduardo Camavinga has further solidified his place in the ranks of the “Casa Blanca,” which is sure to delight Real Madrid supporters. The versatile midfielder, who has made a name for himself as a central midfielder, left-back, and defensive midfielder, has extended his contract with the club until 2029.
Camavinga’s remarkable adaptability on the field has not only made him an essential asset for Real Madrid, but has also earned him his first call-ups to the French national team. Under the guidance of Didier Deschamps, Camavinga has shown great tactical flexibility, sometimes even playing as a left-back for the “Les Bleus.” With 14 appearances in all competitions this season, including 10 starts and an assist, the Cabinda native has quickly become indispensable in Carlo Ancelotti’s team.
He shone in the Clasico, where Real Madrid secured a memorable victory over FC Barcelona (2-1). With 12 caps for the French national team and a goal to his name, Camavinga has experienced a meteoric rise within the “Casa Blanca.” The young talent arrived at Real Madrid in August 2021 from his youth club, Stade Rennais, for a transfer fee of 31 million euros, alongside his compatriot Aurélien Tchouaméni.
Two-year contract for the Frenchman
In recognition of Camavinga’s achievements and rapid progression, Real Madrid has offered him a two-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until 2029.
The official statement from the Madrid club reads: “Real Madrid CF and Camavinga have reached an agreement to extend the player’s contract, which will keep him tied to the club until June 30, 2029. Camavinga joined Real Madrid in 2021 at the age of 18 and, in his first two seasons, he has already won six titles: 1 UEFA Champions League, 1 FIFA Club World Cup, 1 UEFA Super Cup, 1 La Liga, 1 Copa del Rey, and 1 Supercopa de España. At just 20 years old, he has already played 114 matches in the white shirt. He was nominated for the Golden Boy in 2021 and 2022 and for the Kopa Trophy in 2022 and 2023.”
This contract extension follows similar agreements with other young talents at the club, including Vinicius Jr, who extended his contract at the end of October, and Rodrygo. Real Madrid’s commitment to ensuring the longevity of its young talents and future generation is evident in this decision. To ensure that Camavinga remains a key part of their plans, the club has set his release clause at the staggering sum of one billion euros, a practice that is becoming increasingly common at Real Madrid and other top clubs, to deter potential suitors and protect their rising stars.
