Real Madrid interested in €45 million Tottenham Hotspur target by Sourav Mahanty
Rumours always surround a club like Real Madrid. That is to be expected and is nothing new. Los Blancos were never expected to make any additions to their squad this January though, and that has remained the case. On the other hand, there have not been any exits either. But considering the lack of depth in this squad, that is understandable too.
Real Madrid have been struggling with injury problems throughout the course of the campaign. On top of that, a number of players have seemed exhausted after the World Cup break and their performance levels have dropped considerably.
As a result, the last thing that Real Madrid need now is to let players leave, who are still getting minutes on the pitch.
Yet, Eduardo Camavinga was linked with a loan move to Arsenal recently, while Chelsea were rumoured to have been interested too. It looks like there is not much to it though. As reported by Marca, Carlo Ancelotti said about the French midfielder in a press conference:
“He is untouchable, like Kroos and Modric.”

Thus, it looks like Camavinga is set to stay at Real Madrid for the foreseeable future and that is certainly the right path to take as well.
Perhaps some months back, the idea of a loan move would have made more sense, considering he was struggling badly for playing time and was not really impressing when he was on the pitch.
Things have changed for him lately in that regard though. He has arguably been Real Madrid’s most consistent performer after the World Cup alongside Thibaut Courtois.
There is clearly a role for him in the team right now, and as a result, it would not make much sense to let him leave on loan, especially when Real Madrid have looked so sluggish and out of ideas over the past several weeks.
