Eduardo Camavinga was presented as a new Real Madrid player on Wednesday, September 8, and expressed his happiness at joining the club. The French midfielder completed his move from Rennes to Real Madrid on deadline day. After being on international duty with France’s under-21s, he is now working under the orders of Carlo Ancelotti. “I am thrilled and proud to be here,” Camavinga said during his presentation. “I want to thank the president of Real Madrid Florentino Perez and my family because they have made it possible for me to be here. If a few years ago they told me that I would be here, Hala Madrid!” Before Camavinga walking up to the podium, Florentino Perez had some words to say about the 18-year-old and the return of fans to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid welcome a player who is going to show his talent
“Today, this club welcomes a player who is going to show his talent,” Florentino Perez began. “Camavinga and his family know how hard this path has been. Since he was a little boy, he has been striving to wear Real Madrid’s shirt, and that moment has now arrived. Although he is only 18 years old, he was being watched by some of the biggest clubs in Europe. We have been tracking his talent for the last two years. Dear Eduardo, you are now a Real Madrid player, and I hope this is the beginning of a great career at Real Madrid. You are coming to Real Madrid from a friendly club. You have made history by being the youngest player to make his debut for France since 1914.
“And now you will wear the shirt of the club that have won 13 European Cups, you will defend a badge that has the best record in the history of football, and that has values that millions of people around the world identify with. Your parents Celestino and Sofia, and your siblings know what you have had to go through to get here. Here a career awaits you in which you will not be alone, in which the fans will always support you. We are coming from a tough time because of the COVID-19 pandemic. March 1, 2020, was the last time we could be together at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, and it is exciting to say that football is now coming back to the Santiago Bernabeu after such hard and strange times.”
