Jude Bellingham jokes Eduardo Camavinga has to pay for dinner after signing new Real Madrid contract

Nov 8, 2023

Real Madrid have announced that former Manchester United target Eduardo Camavinga has signed a new deal until 2029.

The midfielder joined Los Blancos from Rennes in 2021 and has since become a regular for one of the giants of European football.

Camavinga is now in his third season at the club with 114 appearances to his name and lifted both La Liga and the Champions League.

He now looks set to remain a key part of the Madrid midfield with his latest deal that runs until June 2029.

Teammate Jude Bellingham was among the first to congratulate Camavinga writing: “Congrats Uncle Cama, next dinner is on you!”

The Athletic report that his new contract not only includes a salary rise, but also a whopping £1billion release clause.

Such a deal spells bad news for United, who were reportedly keen to make him the most expensive player in their history.

Spanish outlet Fichajes reported in March that the Premier League giants were willing to pay around £113million for the 20-year-old.

However, United instead signed Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat for their midfield this summer, with Camavinga staying at Madrid.

If Erik ten Hag’s side were to complete such a deal, then his fee would have eclipsed the £89million they paid for Paul Pogba in 2016.

United also signed Casemiro in 2022, with Camavinga being seen as his long-term replacement at Madrid.

Both have been regular starts for their respective clubs this season, although the Spanish outfit’s campaign has fared better thus far.

Casemiro will be out of action for several weeks after he suffered a hamstring injury in United’s 1-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Newcastle.

The Brazilian just returned from a knock prior to Magpies’ visit but now may not return until the end of the year or early 2024.
