Real Madrid are reportedly close to tying Eduardo Camavinga down on a new and improved bumper contract.
That’s according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who has reported France’s Camavinga has impressed so much during his first two seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu that the Spanish giants now want to offer him a better deal.

Widely regarded as one of European soccer’s best players with sky-high potential, Camavinga, just 20 years old has already become one of Los Blancos’ most important players.
For example, during his most recent game against Celta Vigo in La Liga, the young versatile defender was arguably the best player on the pitch.

And even though he has four more years left on his deal, in an effort to reward him for his fine form, Real Madrid’s hierarchy are rumored to be preparing a bumper contract that could include an eye-watering $1.24 billion release clause.
Since moving from Ligue 1 side Rennes back in 2021, Camavinga, who is the youngest player to represent France since 1914, has scored two goals and provided three assists in 89 appearances in all competitions.
