He’s untouchable’: Carlo Ancelotti confirms Eduardo Camavinga will NOT leave Real Madrid this month


Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed midfielder Eduardo Camavinga will stay at the club amid reports linking him to Arsenal.

Camavinga joined Real in 2021, but the 20-year-old hasn’t been a regular starter in LaLiga this season and the Gunners were rumoured to be seeking a loan move in a bid to strengthen their title hopes.

However, Ancelotti says the Frenchman is ‘untouchable’ and will stay at the club as he likened him to the long-serving Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash with Athletic Bilbao, Ancelotti said: ‘We will not let Camavinga leave, he’s untouchable — like Modrić and Toni Kroos’.

Despite playing a crucial role in last season’s Champions League triumph, Camavinga has so far failed to establish himself in the starting XI, having started just five times in the league this season.

With his flair and technical ability, Camavinga would have been a good fit for Arteta’s side as the Spaniard looks to add more depth to his squad for the second half of the season.

Arsenal have already secured the signing of winger Leandro Trossard from Brighton for £27million, while Polish defender Jakub Kiwior is poised to join from Spezia.

The Gunners are aiming to strengthen their midfield significantly in the summer, with West Ham star Declan Rice their main target.

Arsenal missed out on a move for Mykhailo Mudryk, who instead joined Chelsea from Shakhtar Donetsk for £88million.

Arteta’s team have enjoyed a superb season so far and are currently five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand on their closest challengers.

The north London side will seek to continue their bright form when they host Manchester United on Sunday evening.
