Camavinga took Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt just two days before positive coronavirus test and vowed ‘I won’t wash it’

FRENCH wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga went home with Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt just two days before the Portuguese star tested positive for coronavirus.

The in-demand Rennes ace, who was left on the bench in the 0-0 draw with Portugal on Sunday, vowed 'never to wash it' before learning of his positive result.


Ronaldo played the full 90 minutes in Sunday night's Nations League stalemate.

It was revealed by Portugal on Tuesday how the Juventus star had been sent home from international duty having contracted the deadly virus.

He showed no symptoms and has been ordered to self isolate before returning to the Juve squad.

It is understood no other Portugal player has tested positive.

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 had 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.

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."
