Juventus ready to hijack Real Madrid's transfer for Camavinga with Pirlo desperate to build team around wonderkid

JUVENTUS are ready to rival Real Madrid for Eduardo Camavinga, according to reports.

The French midfielder has shot to fame with Stade Rennais and was widely tipped to move to a European giant this summer.

However, Camavinga committed to staying in Ligue 1 ahead of his side's shot at the Champions League group stage.

Several media outlets from across the continent are predicting a bidding war for the youngster's signature at the end of the season.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus will make a serious play for Camavinga, who turns 18 next month.

The Old Lady are said to be developing a strong relationship with Rennes, having sent defender Daniele Rugani to Brittany on loan earlier this month.

Furthermore, new Juve boss Andrea Pirlo reportedly wants to make the midfielder a central part of his new, young side.

Arthur Melo, Dejan Kulusevski, Federico Chiesa and Weston McKennie were all brought in during the transfer window, with Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi among those leaving.

And Camavinga is seen as one of Europe's hottest teenage talents, with 49 appearances for Rennes already under his belt.

After making his France debut last month, he opened the scoring in Les Bleus' 7-1 rout of Ukraine on Wednesday.

Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United have all been tipped to bid for the Angola-born ace.

Having made zero signings during the autumn, Real are reportedly formulating a triple swoop for French stars next year.

Along with Camavinga, long-term target Kylian Mbappe and Dayot Upamecano have been named as key targets.
