One of the surprise rumours of the January transfer window was the departure of Eduardo Camavinga from Real Madrid. The French midfielder who had only spent barely two seasons at the Santiago Bernabéu was linked with a move outside the Spanish capital.
Especially in England, the 20-year-old was said to be nearing a move for at least one season. However, a strong statement from the club’s top hierarchy and Carlo Ancelotti had since brought the rumours to a halt.
In the statement made by the club, Eduardo Camavinga was deemed not for sale as the club had never made available its players for sale on the transfer market.
According to Goal, Arsenal were interested in a loan offer for Eduardo Camavinga in a bid to strengthen its midfield for the rest of the season. The Gunners currently lead the 20-man Premier League table and are working towards maintaining their push for the league title.
The article published by Fichajes suggests Arsenal, Bayern Munich, and Chelsea were all interested in securing the services of Eduardo Camavinga from Real Madrid.
The Bundesliga giants had gone all out in a bid to win the race for the Frenchman, but it was rejected by Real Madrid. The Los Blancos give its clear indication not to sell the player at all costs.
Todd Boehly has already spent millions on the transfer market and is willing to make more reinforcements. Camavinga was also an option for the American businessman. However, Real Madrid gave a negative response to Chelsea’s interest in the player.
Arsenal had marked the midfielder as a top priority in January as they seek to strengthen their midfield for the rest of the season.
