Camavinga arrived at Santiago Bernabeu from Stade Rennais in Ligue 1 last season and has since made 66 appearances for the La Liga champions.

The French midfielder, however, has often been substituted in the games he has started and has amassed a total game time of 1,041 minutes this campaign under Ancelotti.

Camavinga’s agent speaks on Arsenal links

Meanwhile, Eduardo Camavinga’s agent has shot down links with a loan move to Arsenal, amid reports of interest from the Gunners this month, Daily Cannon reports.

The Real Madrid midfielder’s agent revealed there is no truth in the reported transfer rumour as he claims his client is happy currently at Real Madrid.

Arsenal are in the market for a midfielder and had intended to sign Camavinga on loan this January as any plans to sign Declan Rice from West Ham United are on hold until the summer.

Ancelotti set to banish Camavinga

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly fed up with Eduardo Camavinga and is prepared to exile the French midfielder from his first team.

Camavinga had a game to forget in the Spanish Super Cup final, as the Spanish champions were defeated 3-1 by arch-rivals Barcelona, with Ancelotti forced to substitute the Frenchman at half-time for his poor performance.

The 20-year-old midfielder completed only 68 percent of his passes and lost possession 11 times against the Catalan giants, frustrating Ancelotti and his Real Madrid teammates.
