After his impressive debut campaign in the Spanish capital, Eduardo Camavinga hopes to see French compatriot Aurelien Tchouameni join him at Real Madrid.
Camavinga adapted very quickly after signing from Rennes at the beginning of the season, playing an essential role in midfield as Los Blancos claimed LaLiga, the Supercopa de Espana and the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Tchouameni continues to be linked with a move away from Monaco, and Madrid is reportedly among the prime suitors.
In an interview with L’Equipe, Camavinga threw his weight behind a similar move from Ligue 1 to the Santiago Bernabeu for the 22-year-old.
“He’s fun, that’s for sure,” Camavinga said. “He’s a player I already know from the national team. I hope he comes to Madrid.
“I don’t know exactly what the situation is, but I’ve already spoken to him. So we’ll see what happens in the next few days.”
Despite a notable first season in Madrid, Camavinga has not appeared for France since October 2020, coming off the bench in their 2-1 win over Croatia in Zagreb.
Playing with Les Bleus in this international window while another rematch of the 2018 World Cup final beckons for the senior team in the Nations League, the 19-year-old admits he is still yet to comprehend his Champions League triumph fully.
However, Didier Deschamps still harbours the ambition to be called upon.
When the World Cup eventually comes in November.
“I’m still in a dream.
“I already had the opportunity to go to Cibeles to celebrate LaLiga, and I came back for the Champions League.
“You experience huge emotions, but you have to know how to make sense of things.
“I had a few days to enjoy myself, but now I have to concentrate on the national team. Although I still have the Champions League on my mind.
“It’s my club performances that will determine whether I’m selected or not. I’ll go back to the club and play as much as possible. Then, whatever happens, will happen.”
