Paris Saint-Germain is among the teams keeping an eye on the transfer situation with Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, according to the Spanish-based outlet AS.
Per the report, Camavinga is in a dilemma with his current club. Rennes is hoping to qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage next season, which could net them €20 million. The club would use a small portion of this amount into reworking a contract deal with Camavinga. But if Rennes bow out in the Champions League qualification round, it will eye selling him in order to max out his current transfer value.
Clubs already have an idea of what the transfer price will be for the Frenchman as newly appointed Rennes sporting director Florian Maurice alluded to (via RMC Sport) about refusing to negotiate for any price lower than the set €80 million figure.
Per the AS report, Real Madrid has shown interest in signing the 17-year-old but club president Fiorentino Perez is opting against stringing together a blockbuster transfer deal this summer. The recent coronavirus shutdown has forced Perez to be conservative with the club’s transfer funds. Real Madrid is also coming off of a summer last year where they spent big for the likes of Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic, so they may pause on seeking another high-priced transfer deal.
As the report concludes, Madrid’s signal to not enter into the Camavinga sweepstakes opens up the door for interested teams PSG and Bayern Munich to possibly join any such transfer negotiations. The French midfielder may be interested in transfer discussions with both clubs.
