During Zvezda’s trip to Barcelona in EuroLeague Round 29, the Argentine point guard negotiated a deal with the Royal club, according to the report.
From 2014 to 2020, Campazzo was the Real jersey’s representative.
Facundo Campazzo reportedly agrees on deal with Real
The 32-year-old has played in nine regular-season EuroLeague games this season, averaging 15.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.9 assists, and 18.7 PIR.
On December 19, Campazzo began a two-year assignment in Belgrade. The EuroLeague’s sanctions against Crvena Zvezda prohibited Facu from playing until March, therefore his tenure did not go as anticipated.
Campazzo owed Real Madrid €2.6 million of the €6 million release clause that the Argentine pledged to pay for leaving the team for the NBA before signing with Red Star. According to Aris Barkas of Eurohoops, a sizeable portion of that sum would be reimbursed by the agreement made with the Serbian squad.
According to the same article, Facu’s salary for the 2022–23 season will be €1.8 million, and for the 2023–24 season it will be €2.5 million.
The buyout is also €50,000 for the upcoming summer.
During his stint with Los Blancos, Campazzo won two EuroLeague, three ACB, and two Spanish Cup championships.
Facu acknowledged in early February that his top priority following an uneventful stint with the Dallas Mavericks at the start of the 2022–23 season was to return to Real.
He noted that although conversations had taken place, they ultimately failed.
In an interview with the Israeli media source Sport5, Campazzo stated, “My priority was to go to Real Madrid.” “We tried to negotiate, but we couldn’t, so it doesn’t matter.”
His Crvena Zvezda finished the regular season in 10th position, two victories outside the playoff zone, and failed to advance to the EuroLeague postseason.
As the third seed in the 2023 EuroLeague Playoffs, Real is now awaiting the start of its best-of-five series against Partizan.
