Eduardo Camavinga is one of the hottest properties in world football and Rennes know it.
Real Madrid are leading the race to sign the 17-year-old midfielder having scouted him during his time in the Rennes academy and all season in the senior team.
Camavinga himself believes a move to Real Madrid would be the best option for his career because it would suit his playing style and allow him to progress.
He made his senior debut for Rennes at the age of 16 and has gone on to make 32 appearances in Ligue 1 since then while also playing in the Europa League.
It’s because of his young age that Rennes are growing suspicious over interest from Real Madrid.
Although he’s only 17 and doesn’t turn 18 until November, Camavinga would be free to live in Spain because he is a French citizen.
The player’s family think it’s too early for him to make a big money move, but they also know that it’ll be difficult to resist the temptations of joining a club like Real Madrid.
As far as Rennes are concerned, they want to keep the teenager for another season and would be happy to sell next summer, rather than this year.
