Eduardo Camavinga, Real Madrid’s new smile
MADRID — In a market weighed down by a lack of flashy signings, Real Madrid have chosen austerity and practicality over wasting millions on players they don’t trust. Without more new faces than Rudiger and Tchouameni, Ancelotti’s men have shown that the block is above individuality.
However, it is necessary to underline the case of a player who, already last year, pointed means and deserved more minutes than he played. Eduardo Camavinga has started the year defending at the highest level and showing that Madrid’s bet is not a bluff.
He arrived last year in exchange for 30 million euros in the last tranche of the market. Florentino was ahead of Manchester United and PSG, who offered more money. Not much more, but they offered more money. Camavinga, who had known about Madrid’s interest for two seasons, didn’t think twice. And that at 18 when he landed at the Santiago Bernabéu, the young Frenchman knew he was not going to have many opportunities.
Those who know him day to day say he exudes “pure joy”. He always has a smile, a joke or a hug for his companions. Plus, one reveals that after the Christmas break, just when the team was going through a little dip in form, he was “one of the few who kept up and cheered us all on. “.
That’s why Ancelotti is delighted with him. The Italian has already publicly stated that this season he will get more minutes than the previous one. It is not for less. Counting only his match against Espanyol, the U-21 international for France played 32 minutes with 100% efficiency in the 13 actions he had, with two chances generated and winning 85% of the duels with the rival.
Moreover, his self-confidence has made Real Madrid change an image away from what their fans want for a happy team they want to see. To add something more to his contribution, with him on the pitch the team took victory in the home stretch of the game.
And it is that Real Madrid before Camavinga was a managed group, but lacked sparkle. With the dullest Benzema-infected Toni Kroos in recent times, Tchouameni was the only redoubt to cling to in midfield. The other Frenchman, who will be talked about a lot in the coming weeks, demonstrated the reason for Madrid’s investment this summer. And what’s left…
But I’m going back to Camavinga. It’s magic, it’s skill and it’s fast piloting with the ball at your feet. It helps in defense and incorporation into attack. He is a 19-year-old boy who has everything ahead of him but who has already shown, in just three matches, that he deserves more starts this season with Madrid and to leave the France U21 team for good to arrive in Qatar with the French senior. crew.
For Camavinga, this season is exciting and what was seen in the second half of the match against Espanyol only confirms the good feelings that emerge from this player project. Don’t let anyone take your smile away from you.
