Camavinga’s agent replies to Arsenal rumors
Jonathan Barnett was clear about the French midfielder’s intention: “He wants to be at Real Madrid for his entire career...”
In an exclusive interview with Goal, Eduardo Camavinga’s agent Jonathan Barnett spoke about the midfielder’s intentions and how he sees his future at Real Madrid. Barnett also clarified the rumours that surfaced in the January window about a possible move to Arsenal: “Absolute nonsense...” said the agent.
Rennes to Madrid: “Camavinga want to sign for Real Madrid, it was a great challenge for him and Real Madrid wanted him, so in the end it was quite simple. Real Madrid is a fantastic club to work with. When they want the player and the player wants to play there, everything is very simple”.
New role: “Due to the injuries that have occurred, he has had to play a lot on the left side, he will always give everything for the team. But he wants to become a great midfielder, he loves to play in midfield and we’ll see how special he is. He is a really special footballer”.
Contract upgrade: “I never talk about contracts. I think we will discuss it with the club at the right time. He wants to be a Real Madrid player and wear the white shirt for the rest of his life. There will be no problem with Real Madrid, we will sit down and I am sure that we will reach an agreement”.
Winter loan to Arsenal: “That was rubbish, it’s something that wasn’t going to happen. He has never thought about playing for another team and Real Madrid would not have let him leave. He is going to be one of the stars of Real Madrid in the future, so why leave? It was all rubbish.”
What he is like? “He is a very special player. You’re going to see in the next two or three years how good he is. He is still learning but he is a special player. The way he plays... you’ll see how good he is, I know that Real Madrid loves him in a special way. He is also a great person, a fantastic person, it’s a pleasure to be his agent. He also has a wonderful family.”
