However, Eduardo Camavinga was not the only French player that Real Madrid wanted to sign this summer. They also wanted the French forward Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain, but now as the transfer deadline is very near, the deal with PSG looks off. Mbappe has only one year left in his contract. Thus, Real Madrid is hoping to get him next summer for free.
