Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has become one of the most sought-after young talents in world football and the Ligue 1 side have set an asking price for him that reflects his immense talent.
The 18-year-old, who only turned 18 earlier this month, has already played 51 times for Rennes and earned three caps for France, scoring on his second appearance for his country.
His international debut against Croatia this year made him the youngest player to appear for France in over 100 years, demonstrating the huge strides he has made at such a young age.
It is no surprise that the biggest clubs in Europe have begun to circle, with Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all credited with an interest in the teenager.
Spanish publication Marca report that any club wanting to sign Camavinga in January or next summer will have to pay ‘at least £62m’ for his services.
A transfer is certainly a possibility, though, with Rennes only having the wonderkid under contract until 2022, a deal he signed last year.
The last thing they will want is for their prize asset walk away at the end of his contract, so they will certainly be willing to listen to offers in the summer, if he does not sign a new deal.
Despite the interest from the world’s biggest clubs, Camavinga has said he may well be keen to extend his contract at Rennes.
‘I see, I hear things. It is nice to hear everything that is said but those things are not going distract him,’ said the France international.
‘I know how to differentiate different things. I’m at Rennes and the other clubs is not a topic for now. We will see later.
‘Now I go out a lot less, I hide a little more. Life outside of sports has changed and the rivals in the field they also see me differently than a year and half ago.
‘You don’t have to look so much at what is around you and you have to concentrate on what is essential.
‘I have two years left on my contract and there is time to talk about it. There will be negotiations to renew, this is my training club and I would like to stay here.’
