Real Madrid given clear path to sign Camavinga as Arsenal and Barcelona pull out of £53m transfer race for Rennes kid – The Sun

REAL MADRID are reportedly in pole position to land Rennes starlet Eduardo Camavinga at the end of the season.

Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane is said to be a huge fan of the 17-year-old with the player believed to be a top priority as the Spanish look to sign a defensive midfielder.

Camavinga burst on the scene last season where he became the youngest ever player to feature for Rennes.

And his stock has continued to rise this term with the French youth international appearing in 36 games in all competitions.

Arsenal had been linked with a move for the teenager, but it now appears that Real are the only ones still in the race to secure his services.

According to Marca, Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund are no longer interested in Camavinga due to his desire to move the Bernabeu.

They state Rennes are looking to sell the player for around £53million.

However AS claim that the fee the Ligue 1 side is considerably lower, with Camavinga available for roughly around £43.7m.

They add that Zidane has identified him as the perfect alternative should Real fail to capture Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

It has also been claimed that Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are monitoring his progress, but it is Madrid that are pole position to sign Camavinga.

Camavinga still has two years left to run on his deal with Rennes, but it is understood that they are ready to cash in on him.
