Real Madrid are reportedly “likely” to beat Manchester United and Tottenham until Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga is signed.
Camavinga is one of the greatest prospects in European football having made his debut for Rennes when he was just 16 years old.
Camavinga is only 17 years old and has since established himself as a regular for the French team he will play with in the Champions League this season.
Given his rapid rise, Wren couldn’t possibly hold him back too long. He is rumored to have two great applicants in the Premier League.
European newspapers said Monday that Jose Mourinho wants to bring the midfielder to Tottenham next summer.
But it is Manchester United who are most concerned with getting him to the Premier League. It was recently claimed that they had a formula that would persuade Wren to expand their own reach in place of any other.
However, it will not be easy for United to sign him. In fact, The Athletic already claims that Real Madrid is a “possible target” for the teenager.
Madrid have long been fans of Camavinga, who have played three games for the French national team. Fellow countryman Zinedine Zidane knows exactly what the young man can do.
Real have the buying power needed to beat rivals for expensive players and Camavinga will cost around € 60 million. The La Liga champions cannot pay this summer, but the situation will be different in 2021.
And once they identified the Rennes star as their ideal target, they could make him their long-term successor to Casemiro. The Brazilian is still in the first team at 28, but Madrid can look to the future and bring competition to his place.
Camavinga already admitted in May that he was aware of speculation about a future transfer. He didn’t really focus on it.
“To be honest, I wasn’t really focused on that,” he said at the time. “Of course it’s good that the big clubs as mentioned are interested in me, but on the other hand, I’m not that interested.
“Especially since I’m doing well in Rennes. We’ll see what happens next. I’ll let my parents and my agent do this.
“I don’t look much, but I can still see. In fact, I can’t avoid it. Sometimes I’m fast on social media and see something or friends post articles to me.”
