One of the recent French talent sensations in Ligue 1, Eduardo Camavinga does not seem to be in a hurry to make his summer move to the big teams despite the fact that they are already lining up for his signature next season. There have been at least three top European clubs eyeing for the 18-year old midfielder, Manchester United, Tottenham and Real Madrid.
However, he does not think the urgency of agreeing on signing with one of them yet although it does excite him to know about their interest on his future service. Camavinga even does not mind staying in Rennes till the end of his contract.
“The great clubs make me dream, but I cannot name one in particular for my future. We’ll see [about a new deal at Rennes].We haven’t set a date to discuss my future, I’m in no rush about it. It would be a pleasure for me to continue at Rennes.I still have two years left on my contract and we have enough time to talk about it ”, he said.
Rennes should be quite relieved to see that their ‘most valuable asset’ decides on the issue in such wise manner. They definitely would not let him go soon and are planning to keep them with a long-term contract. Yet, if they have to lose him, Rennes might only be releasing him for no less than £ 62 million. Such amount is surely within the budget of those high profile teams plus Juventus and their domestic contender, PSG. Both have been watching over Camavinga as well, who has been widely regarded as the ‘successor of Paul Pogba.’
The Congolese-born youngster made his professional debut in 2018/19 season. In 2019, he was named in France U-21 squad and it did not take long for him to get a call for the senior team after his impressive form in 2019/2020 season, which was abruptly cancelled due to the rise of covid-19. Nevertheless, the pandemic itself was like blessing in disguise. Camavinga eventually got a call up to replace Paul Pogba who tested positive coronavirus for the UEFA Nations League fixture against Croatia last August. He became the youngest debutante for Les Blues since 1932. His wonderful form does not stop there as the teenage midfielder netted his first goal for his national team in October 2020 when France hammered Ukraine 7-1. It was another record-breaker for the youngest scorer for Les Blues since 1914.
