Of these three applicants that Zidane manages to oxygenate Casemiro, immovable for the technician, Kanté is the one who, right now, can go the ‘double’ more than the Brazilian. The statistics of both are almost a trace. And even the Chelsea player, who is usually more accompanied than the Brazilian, improves in some ways the Real Madrid player.Kanté, in a season in which injuries have slightly eroded that image of an indestructible player, he recovers in the Premier the same as Casemiro in LaLiga (one ball every 10 minutes), his losses are similar (one every 7 minutes of the Brazilian for one every 6 of the French), they average the same actions per game (1.2), his pass success rate is identical (83%) and they have the same goals (3). But there are pulses that decant to one side or the other. Casemiro is more powerful in the air game (he clears a ball every 79 ‘; Kanté does it every 197’), assists more (two goal passes by none of the Frenchman) and dares more (averages a shot every 65 ‘; French takes 21 more minutes). However, Kanté generates more chances (one every 57 ‘against the Brazilian’s 222’ average) and is more active in the dangerous zone (one action every 43 ‘in the rival area; Casemiro’s average is 76’ …) .Statistics support Kanté against Camavinga and Soumaré, whose numbers are further away from Casemiro’s, especially the Lille player. But There are some aspects in which Camavinga, on pole at the Bernabéu offices, ‘sweeps’ the Chelsea midfielder. One is in the ground level entrances to steal the ball, what the English call ‘tackles’. There, the one from Rennes is a specialist. Average one every 20 ’; Kanté takes 16 more minutes. Another is the one of success in the pass. Camavinga has uncovered himself as a player who chooses quickly and well (he has an extraordinary positioning and oriented control). If you see that there is no advance option, the pass is secured. It has an 87% effectiveness (Soumaré inflates the chest in this statistic: 89%). Below you can see the complete comparison.France Football: Kanté, not less than € 70MNevertheless, Although the numbers point to Kanté as Casemiro’s best ‘twin ‘, Real Madrid’s first choice is Eduardo Camavinga. It is true that Chelsea guarantee immediate performance, it is more than done to the rigors of the elite, but his age (29 years), his price (France Football publishes that the London club will not let him go for less than 70 million) and that his physique begins to send signals, they make the fingers of the white club point to the Franco-Angolan. For DNI (17 years), for projection, for physical power and technical qualities. CI assure that he is non-negotiable and he is seen in Camavinga as the perfect player to cook alongside the Brazilian, learning from his trade when the time comes for relief. Something like Madrid did, advised by Zidane, with Varane when Pepe was on the roster. Of course, the operation is warned that it will be more expensive. Varane cost 10 million. It is said that for Camavinga, Rennes, who wants to keep him one more year, would ask for around 50 million … FOULS COMMITTED64 (every 34 ‘)37 (every 37 ‘)48 (every 44 ‘)16 (every 76 ‘) SCORED GOALS3 (one every 740 ‘)3 (every 740 ‘)1 (each 2,112)0last_img
