Real Madrid announce that midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has penned a new long-term contract at the Bernabeu.
Midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has signed a new long-term contract at Real Madrid.
Having made an impact at Rennes during his teenage years, Camavinga was long tipped to move to a bigger club before he eventually signed for Los Blancos in 2021.
Still short of his 21st birthday, albeit by just three days, the France international has had to remain patient for first-team opportunities, as well as being deployed at left-back on occasions rather than in central midfield.…Click Here To Continue Reading>>
Nevertheless, Camavinga is regarded as one of Carlo Ancelotti’s most important players, and that has been reflected by his game time during 2023-24.
Camavinga has been provided with 11 starts and four substitute outings in all competitions, the majority of his appearances coming in the engine room.
Upon arriving at the Bernabeu, Camavinga penned a six-year contract, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2026-27 season.
Real have now announced that fresh terms have been successfully negotiated with Camavinga, extending his deal until 2029.
The development is the latest in a number of new contracts with Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo each penning new deals in recent weeks.
While Real were not in danger of losing any of the aforementioned players, club officials have moved to protect themselves against future bids.
More negotiations are expected to materialise in due course, Real currently having nine players who have less than two years remaining on their respective contracts.
Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Nacho, Lucas Vazquez and Andriy Lunin all have deals that are due to expire at the end of this season.
Meanwhile, Daniel Carvajal, Ferland Mendy and Eder Militao have contracts until 2025, Real most likely to act with the latter of that trio in the coming weeks.

Bristol City have confirmed the appointment of Liam Manning as their new manager on a three-and-a-half-year contract.
The 38-year-old joins the Robins from Oxford United with immediate effect, having steered Oxford to second in League One this season.
Manning replaces Nigel Pearson, who was sacked by Bristol City last month following a run of five defeats in seven games.
The former MK Dons boss has put pen to paper on a contract that will keep him at Ashton Gate until June 2027, and he will be joined at the club by his assistant Chris Hogg.
“This is a terrific opportunity and one that I’m really looking forward to,” Manning told the club’s official website.
“If you look at the vision of the club and where they want to get to and how they want to get there I think there is really good fit and alignment with my journey and where I want to get to.

“You want players that you can coach and are mouldable and on an upward trajectory in their career. I think that brings certain behaviours in terms of drive, intensity and ambition which align with how we want to work.”
Bristol City chairman Jon Lansdown added: “Liam is a great fit for the club and the style of play we want. He has a very detailed approach to coaching, improving players and getting the best out of them as his record at MK Dons and Oxford United shows, while he has valuable experience within the City Group and in Belgium.
“As soon as we made the change Liam was our first choice and we are grateful to Oxford United for the extremely professional way they have approached the departure of someone who was doing a fantastic job for them.
“We are excited about the arrival of Liam and Chris and fulfilling the ambition we all have for the club with this talented and committed group of players.”
Manning’s first match in charge of Bristol City will come away to Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, while his first home game at the helm will come against Middlesbrough after the upcoming international break.
The Robins beat Sheffield Wednesday under interim boss Curtis Fleming at the weekend, lifting them back into the top half of the Championship table.
Manning spent less than eight months in charge at Oxford, winning 14 and losing just eight of his 29 matches in charge.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Richarlison to undergo surgery on pelvic injury

Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison reveals that he will undergo an operation to treat a pelvic problem as Ange Postecoglou’s injury crisis worsens.…Click Here To Continue Reading>>
Tottenham Hotspur attacker Richarlison has revealed that he will soon go under the knife to address a pelvic injury as Ange Postecoglou’s absentee crisis worsens.
The 26-year-old was dropped from the starting lineup for Monday’s London derby with Chelsea, where Brennan Johnson was given the nod on the left-hand side in a 4-1 defeat.
As Tottenham went down to nine men with Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie’s dismissals, Postecoglou made a raft of defensive substitutions, leaving Richarlison on the bench throughout the 90 minutes.
The former Everton man has endured a challenging time both of and off the field recently, and he revealed in September that he was seeking psychological help after breaking down in tears while playing for Brazil.
Richarlison also has just one goal to show from 10 Premier League games this season, in addition to three assists, but he is now facing a spell on the sidelines ahead of his pubis operation.
“The last few months haven’t been easy for me. I’ve had health problems. I’ve already spoken to the doctors and soon I would do surgery on my pubis,” Richarlison told ESPN Brasil, as quoted by the Evening Standard.
“I’ve been suffering, fighting for my national team and my club for eight months and haven’t been taking care of myself. I think it’s time to rest, to stop for a second. I’ll think about it in the next few days and soon I will do what is best for me.”
The attacker was also snubbed by Brazil boss Fernando Diniz as he missed out on a call-up for November’s fixtures with Colombia and Argentina, although he believes that a break will do him the world of good.
“I was sad when I was not called up but I understand Deniz,” Richarlison added. “In his place, I wouldn’t call me up either — I haven’t been playing good football, I’ve been below my best.
“I have to be playing. I have to be feeling well, I have to be 100 per cent and I haven’t been, I think the manager made the right choice. Every player wants to be called up for the national team. Of course, I was hoping for it but already felt that it was time for a rest.”
Tottenham had already emerged from their loss to Chelsea with an alarming four new concerns to contend with, as Micky van de Ven and James Maddison both went off injured in first-half injury time.
Van de Ven went down in agony with an apparent hamstring problem, and Postecoglou has admitted that his injury looks to be severe, while Maddison’s ankle problem will need assessing in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Udogie and Romero will now serve suspensions owing to their red cards on Monday, with the former – who was ejected for two bookable challenges on Raheem Sterling – set to miss this weekend’s trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Before Udogie’s sending off, Romero was banished in the first half for an awful penalty-box challenge on compatriot Enzo Fernandez, and the Argentina centre-back will also sit out meetings with Aston Villa and champions Manchester City during a three-game suspension.
Manor Solomon, Ryan Sessegnon, Ivan Perisic and Alfie Whiteman are all recovering from surgery too, while Ben Davies was not in the squad to face Chelsea following a blow to the ankle but should be in contention for Saturday’s clash with Wolves.

Mikel Arteta rules out Jesus for Sevilla game, Odegaard doubtful

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has provided an injury update on two players ahead of the Champions League group stage clash against Sevilla on Wednesday.
The Gunners suffered their first Premier League defeat of the campaign on Saturday. Newcastle United won by a 1-0 scoreline after a controversial goal in the second half.
Arteta will want a strong response from his side against Sevilla tomorrow and ahead of the game, he has provided an update on two players who have been on the sidelines.
Jesus picked up a hamstring injury in the reverse fixture against the La Liga outfit where he registered a goal and an assist. Arteta clarified that he won’t be fit for the game.
Meanwhile, club captain Martin Odegaard played a cameo in the Carabao Cup defeat at West Ham United, but he was not fit to make the squad against Newcastle.
When pressed on his availability, the manager said that the €90 million-rated star is still uncertain.
He told Arsenal.com: “Gabriel [Jesus] won’t be fit. With Martin, it’s still uncertain. The rest, no news so far.”
Arsenal were on the wrong side of a 1-0 defeat at the weekend. Gabriel Magalhaes was clearly fouled in the lead-up to Anthony Gordon’s goal but VAR refused to rule it out.
Arteta had stern words to say about the refereeing after the game and he will want a good reaction from his players when they entertain Sevilla in the Champions League tomorrow.
The Gunners are currently on six points after three group matches. A victory over Sevilla would secure their round of 16 berth, provided Lens beat PSV Eindhoven in the other game.
