Real Madrid are no longer battling anyone for supposed Liverpool target Eduardo Camavinga, according to reports. They’ve already won the race.
That’s according to Marca, anyway. The Spanish outlet says that ‘several teams’ have pulled out of the race, unable to compete with Real. Los Blancos now have a ‘clear path’ to a £52m deal, then – something which does lineup with previous reports.
And we weren’t the only ones – plenty of fans were excited at the prospect, too. Since then, however, it’s become clear that Real have the upper hand over Liverpool for this particular target.

And so, if this latest report is correct, all teams – including Liverpool – have conceded this one to Real.
What RTK has to say
It’s certainly understandable. The more you read about this one, the more it looks as though Camavinga to Real is a certainty. It’s just a matter of when and how much.
Thus it makes sense for Liverpool to turn their attentions elsewhere – assuming they were in fact interested. Camavinga would have been a great signing but the price is too high to mess around at.
It certainly sounds as though the only way to get this one done is with money. You’re not swaying his mind from Real any other way, it seems, and at £52m for a teenager, that’s a risky game to play.
