Real Madrid building for the future with superb deadline day capture of Eduardo Camavinga that has left Man United floundering

So here we are. The last day of the transfer window. Despite an epic summer so far, there are still deals to be done, one of which is expected to be the sensational capture of Rennes’ Eduardo Camavinga by Real Madrid.

The 18-year-old has long been coveted by the best clubs in Europe, including Manchester United, however, it seems that Los Blancos have stolen a march on everyone else, with multiple sources indicating that a deal could be concluded for a paltry €31m plus add-ons.

With a year left of his contract, it’s a decent deal for the French side who could’ve lost the player for nothing next year.

From Real’s perspective, not only will they acquire one of European football’s hottest young talents for a pittance, but Camavinga’s capture will help bring down the average age of Real’s midfield.

Paul Pogba almost certainly won’t move to the Santiago Bernabeu now

Alongside the likes of Fede Valverde, the Frenchman is the future of Carlo Ancelotti’s side, with Casemiro and Isco both 29, and Toni Kroos in his thirties along with Luka Modric.

It’s a changing of the guard of sorts, and one that almost certainly signals the end of Real’s pursuit of Paul Pogba too.
