Eduardo Camavinga lands Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt and vows ‘I won’t wash it’ after facing idol in France vs Portugal

EDUARDO CAMAVINGA went home with Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt after France's 0-0 draw with Portugal and vowed: "I won’t wash it".

The in-demand Rennes star was left on the bench as the five-time Ballon d'Or winner played all 90 minutes of Sunday night's Nations League stalemate.


Despite not making it onto the pitch, Camavinga had seemingly already won the respect of his idol – with Ronaldo giving him his game-worn jersey.

In France's previous game, the midfielder has scored a stunning overhead kick in the 7-1 drubbing of Ukraine.

After the game, Camavinga took to Snapchat to share a picture of the grubby shirt with his pals.

And he captioned the pic: "I won't wash it."

Camavinga has made no bones of the fact he is desperate to move to Real Madrid having grown up watching Ronaldo strutting his stuff at the Bernabeu prior to his 2018 exit.

Camavinga has made no bones of the fact he is desperate to move to Real Madrid having grown up watching Ronaldo strutting his stuff at the Bernabeu prior to his 2018 exit.

The midfielder had hoped to move to Spain this summer, but Los Blancos opted to wait a year due to financial restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Real Madrid are eyeing an astonishing £261million triple-swoop for Erling Haaland, Kylian Mbappe and Camavinga.

But now, Manchester United are set to swoop, seeing Camavinga as a replacement for Paul Pogba – who also played in the Portugal draw.

Elsewhere, boyhood fan Mbappe also paid tribute to Ronaldo after the game.

Mbappe and Ronaldo shared a conversation on the halfway line, smiling and joking with each other before the Juventus ace shot his counterpart a thumbs-up.

After the game, the Paris Saint-Germain attacker tweeted pictures of himself with Ronaldo on the pitch.

He captioned the shot: "Idol."
