Eduardo Camavinga, who joined Real Madrid from Rennes in 2021, may have had a slow start. But there’s no denying that the 20-year-old is now one of the team’s most important players.
Real Madrid wants to extend the contract of a young player until 2029 with a higher salary and a release clause.
While his ball skills and potential were never in doubt, Camavinga has recently demonstrated exceptional versatility and defensive capabilities, starring for Real Madrid as a holding midfielder and even in a makeshift left-back position.
Last night, Los Blancos defeated FC Barcelona 4-0 at Spotify Camp Nou in the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg.
Camavinga’s performance is the latest in a string of impressive ones that has pleased Real Madrid officials.
So much so that, according to COPE (via Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid intends to offer Camavinga a new contract with a significantly higher salary and a higher release clause amount.
The 20-year-current old’s contract with the Merengues expires in the summer of 2027. However, the club wishes to extend his contract by two years, tying him to the club until 2029.
Eduardo Camavinga likely to get Contract Extension with Los Blancos
The former wonderkid from Rennes is reportedly among the group’s lowest earners. And considering how he has grown over the past couple of seasons, Real Madrid wish to offer him a new deal with a much higher salary.
Camavinga’s current release clause is worth €700 million, and the club has previously stated that it wishes to increase it to €1 billion.
According to rumors, Florentino Perez, the club president, adores the young midfielder and views him as a “untouchable” teammate.
Premier League clubs were interested in Camavinga during the January transfer window, but Real Madrid never considered selling him and has always maintained that he is not for sale.
The Spanish champions now want to emphasize that point by signing him to an even longer contract with a higher salary and release clause value.
