Real Madrid ‘considering £55m move to sign Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga amid interest from PSG’ with the LaLiga champions ‘planning to loan the teenage midfielder back to the Ligue 1 club’

  • Eduardo Camavinga made his France debut at just 17 last week against Croatia
  • The Rennes midfielder helped his side achieve Champions League qualification
  • But now Europe’s top clubs are circling, with Real Madrid and PSG interested
  • The LaLiga champions are considering a £55m deal with an option to loan back 

Real Madrid are reportedly plotting a move for up-and-coming Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga this summer with the prime motivation of ensuring no other top European club buys him. 

Camavinga has broken into the first-team with the Ligue 1 club and has earned plaudits for his performances at the tender age of just 17. 

French champions PSG, who lost their season-opener on Thursday, are also eyeing a deal but Madrid could submit a £55m (€60m) bid for Camavinga, with the intention of loaning him back to Rennes for a season or two, according to Spanish outlet Diario Sport

The report details that Rennes would be encouraged by a financial incentive to sell the 17-year-old alongside playing a part in his continued development for the next two years. 

The midfielder started 24 Ligue 1 matches last season as he helped his side overachieve and claim a Champions League qualification spot. 

More significantly however, Camavinga was handed his senior France debut last week, when he featured against Croatia in the UEFA Nations League. 

That appearance made him the youngest French international in more than 100 years, since Maurice Gastiger made his debut in 1914. 

‘I would not say no to Camavinga,’ said PSG boss Thomas Tuchel earlier this week.

‘He is one of the best players in Ligue 1 and has a good future.’ 

Camavinga became the youngest ever professional player for Rennes when he made his senior debut in December 2018 – at the age of 16 and one month. 

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane could play a huge role in persuading Camavinga that his long-term future should be at the Bernabeu, as two of Europe’s biggest clubs get set to go head-to-head for one of European football’s rising stars.
