Real Madrid star Eduardo Camavinga’s agent has spoken out following transfer links with Arsenal back in January.

The agent of Eduardo Camavinga has responded to a question about a possible move to Arsenal.

Camavinga was snapped up by Real Madrid in 2021, signed as a long-term replacement for Casemiro, and he has since made 55 league appearances for Los Blancos. Still only 20 years of age. Many at Real Madrid are very excited about the Frenchman’s development, but the summer signing of Aurélien Tchouaméni has made things more difficult for Camavinga this season.

The defensive midfielder has made 29 La Liga appearances so far this season, but he has often been asked to fill in at left-back since the autumn.

It’s for that reason Camavinga was linked with a loan exit during the January window, with Arsenal tipped to make a move at the time. But according to the midfielder’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, the rumours were fabricated.

“That was rubbish, it’s something that was never going to happen,” Barnett told Goal. “He has never thought of playing for another team and Real Madrid have never made him available. He will be one of the stars at Real Madrid in the future, so why leave? It was all rubbish.”

Speaking about Camavinga’s initial move to the Santiago Bernabeu, Barnett added: “Camavinga loves Real Madrid. It was a great challenge for him and Real Madrid wanted him, so it was something very easy. Real Madrid is a great club to work at. When they want a player and the player wants to play there, it’s all very easy.”

Since the January window closed, Camavinga has started seven of Real Madrid’s 11 games, but six of those have been at left-back, with Los Blancos leaning on the Frenchman’s versatility.
