Real Madrid are reportedly struggling to be able to afford Rennes star and Manchester United target, Eduardo Camavinga, as his Ligue 1 side demand a whopping £63.64m (€70m) for their talented midfielder.
Camavinga, 18, joined Rennes’ youth academy in 2013 and after successfully climbing his way through his side’s youth ranks, the talented Frenchman has already established himself as an important first-team player.
Having featured in a hugely impressive 58 matches in all competitions, Camavinga is now also impressing on the international stage after becoming the youngster French international to be called-up for nearly 100-years.
After enjoying a successful breakthrough, the teenager now looks set to become football’s next big transfer with the likes of Real Madrid, Paris-Saint Germain and United all heavily linked.
According to a recent report from Marca, the Rennes teenager will cost any potential suitor an eye-watering £63.64m, but who is most likely to snap the talented playmaker up?
Well, Marca claim that Real Madrid have already held ‘advanced negotiations’ but due to the financial implications the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are having, the Spanish giants may be forced to reconsider spending so much.
Elsewhere, Paris-Saint Germain reportedly have the same concerns with the biggest sticking point for Camavinga’s current domestic rivals also being his enormous price-tag.
United, on the other hand, could afford Camavinga, especially if the club successfully offload current midfielder Paul Pogba in January.
However, with the 18-year-old’s preferred destination being Madrid, it remains unclear whether or not the Reds’ hierarchy can persuade Rennes’ wonderkid to ditch France for England.
