Real Madrid might not be able to land their transfer target, Eduardo Camavinga, after his coach at Rennes declared that conditions are in place for him to remain in France.
In an interview with AFP, Rennes’ manager, Julien Stephan said that 17 year-old promising midfielder
It would be good for him to stay here for one more season, because he is in an environment that he knows very well and is at a club who have blind faith in him and is surrounded by people who know him perfectly.
I think all the conditions are in place for him to stay with us for one more year. He proclaimed.
However, Laliga giants, Real Madrid, are on hot pursuit for the young and vibrant defensive midfielder who’s expected to be Casemiro’s understudy. But Stephan believes Camavinga needs to prove himself again.
Next season he will have to confirm the good things he has already done with us
That will be his next challenge. And then after, we’ll see.
His potential is enormous, but we know the difficulties involved at the highest level.
You have to allow him grow and above all, to enjoy the field, because now it is the most important thing for him.
The French League was cancelled last week, and Ligue 1 positions determined using points per game method, which meant that Rennes will be making a return to Uefa Champions League– which will provide Camavinga extra insensitive to spend another year with his current side.
Not may players can say no when Real Madrid comes calling but Camavinga will obviously not have the opportunity to play at the highest level anytime soon should he make a switch to the Bernabeu this summer transfer.
Eduardo Camavinga is currently valued at €42.5 million according to Transermakt after 25 senior appearances (starting in 86% of the games) for Rennes, scoring one goal with two assists.
He averaged 42 passes, 88% pass accuracy, 4.5 tackles won, 1.4 interception, 1.4 clearances and made 28 blocks over the course of the short-lived 2019/2020 lique 1 season.
