Real Madrid will soon announce the acquisition of Rennes and France midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
According to the well-known journalist Fabrizio Romano, the clubs have already agreed on the terms of the deal. The “royal” club will pay 31 million euros for the 18-year-old football player. The agreement also provides for bonuses.
Camavinga has already passed a medical examination and signed a full-fledged contract with Real Madrid. Therefore, it is believed that Camavinga soon should become a replacement for the no longer younger Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.
Romano notes that Camavinga rejected the offer of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
Camavinga was born November 10, 2002, in the town of Miconge in the province of Cabinda on the west coast of Angola. A year later, he and his family moved to France. Until the age of seven, Eduardo studied judo and only then switched to football. In 2009, he began playing for the Drapo-Fougere children’s football team.
At the regional tournament among players under the age of 11, he attracted the attention of the selectors of Rennes, and in July 2013, he moved to the youth team of this club.
At the age of 15, Camavinga began playing for the second team of Rennes. On December 14, 2018, he signed a professional contract with the club until June 30, 2021, becoming the youngest professional player in the club’s history.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that Real Madrid withdrew from negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain on the transfer of Kylian Mbappe. Madrid was ready to pay 170 million euros plus 10 million in bonuses for the Frenchman, but the Parisians were not satisfied with this offer.
