Young Eduardo Camavinga of France and Rennes have impressed everyone. His move to a bigger club than Rennes has gained momentum and Real Madrid are extremely interested in him.
Camavinga, whose deal at Rennes expires in the summer of 2022, is the third-youngest player ever to have played for the senior French national team and the youngest in over 70 years.
After missing four games with an injury, the midfielder, who turned 18 earlier this month, was on media duties at Roazhon Park ahead of his return to action, where he was asked about his future with Rennes.
In an interaction with the press published in Marca, Camavinga said, “I see and hear things. It’s nice to hear what people say but those things won’t distract me. I know how to separate things. I’m at Rennes and other clubs aren’t an issue for now. Later we’ll see.”
“I’ve got two years left on my contract and there’s plenty of time to talk about all that. There will be renewal negotiations, this is the club I came through at and I’d like to stay here.”
Although he may not acknowledge it publicly, this could be Camavinga’s final season at Rennes.
If he continues to show that the expectations around him are well-placed, it is very possible that Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, or Manchester United will make a deal with his current club.
Real Madrid, for their part, are already in advanced talks with those around the player. The problem, for Los Blancos and any club, lies in the uncertainty surrounding football right now. Real Madrid haven’t made any signings this season, while other clubs have also been cautious.
If anyone wants to sign Camavinga, they are going to have to be serious about it, however, as Rennes are not budging from their 70 million euros asking price.
