Manager provides update on La Liga star's future as Arsenal plot January bid
| Last updated
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti insists there's no chance Eduardo Camavinga will move to the Premier League in January.
Camavinga, 20, joined the Spanish giants from Rennes in the summer of 2021 and went on to make 40 appearances in all competitions in his debut season at the Bernabeu, winning both the Champions League and La Liga.
He was expected to kick on this season but has struggled to cement a regular starting place under Ancelotti.
The France international has made 17 appearances in La Liga this season, although he has come off the bench in the majority of those games.
Reports emerged on Friday which claimed that Premier League leaders Arsenal had launched a bid to sign Camavinga on loan until the end of the campaign.
Mikel Arteta is keen to bolster his midfield options and provide cover for Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka during the second half of the campaign.
Chelsea were also said to be interested in signing Camavinga, having already brought five new players to the club in January – Benoit Badiashile, David Fofana, Andrey Santos, Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke.
Camavinga's agent rubbishes Premier League reports
However, Camavinga's agent – Joshua Barnett – insists the reports linking the midfielder with a move to the Premier League are false.
"There's no truth in that," Barnett told Fabrizio Romano.
"Of course every club in the world would want him, but he's very happy in Real Madrid and Real Madrid are very happy with Camavinga."
Real Madrid boss Ancelotti has also played down the likelihood of Camavinga leaving in January, even on loan.
He told reporters: "[Camavinga] is untouchable, like [Toni] Kroos and [Luka] Modric."
