Real Madrid hit the jackpot during the summer transfer window

At the end of the summer transfer window, Real Madrid fans were extremely frustrated by the fact that Kylian Mbappe was not released by Paris Saint-Germain. However, the club did not dwell on the disappointment for long, and made a sudden move for Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga from under the radar on deadline day.

Just a few weeks into the season, it has now become clear that Los Blancos made a sound investment. The 18-year-old midfielder arrived for a whopping £34.4 million, which is a fraction of the fortune the club would have spent to sign Mbappe.

Nevertheless, Camavinga has already made a massive impact on Carlo Ancelotti’s team. He scored his first goal as a Real Madrid player just six minutes into his debut off the bench against Celta Vigo over the weekend. Camavinga clearly did not need an extended period of adjustment and hit the ground running at the Spanish capital.
