We’re all used to Real Madrid being in a position to go out and add any footballer that they want to, but it does appear that their financial problems are crippling them in the market only now.
A lot of their transfer talks revolve around them trying to raise the funds to eventually add someone instead of making a bid straight away, so it will be interesting to see how it affects them in the chase for Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
France international changed his agent in an attempt to force a move and the Los Blancos are trying to step up their interest, but it also appears that Red Devils are eyeing a move for the midfielder who could be available for £45m.
There could be some parallels here with Donny van de Beek who was expected to sign for La Liga giants before he made the move to the Theatre of Dreams, although you also have to wonder if this agreement would have an impact on Paul Pogba’s future.
The Norwegian manager has many midfield options so it’s likely that Paul and Eduardo would be battling for the same position on the field, so this could even result in the current Red Devils footballer finally making his way to Real Madrid too.
Camavinga is regarded as one of the brightest teenagers in world football so it would be a major coup if Red Devils could get him, while it would also be a worrying sign for La Liga giants if they miss out on another long-term target.
