The last time a French international took European football by storm was Kylian Mbappé while with AS Monaco during the 2016-17 season.
Although Paris Saint-Germain hasn’t kept a lot of the top French talent since Qatar Sports Investment took over in 2011, they understood that someone like Mbappé couldn’t escape them.
Eduardo Camavinga seems like he’s the next French talent that will draw the eyes of big clubs around Europe, much as Mbappé did three years ago. The 17-year-old already received a call to the French National Team and will have an opportunity to play in Europe as Stade Rennais FC will be in the UEFA Champions League this season.
PSG was able to keep Mbappé in France despite interest from Real Madrid, well it looks as though they’ll try and do the same with Camavinga. According to Le Parisien, the Emir of Qatar and owner of Les Parisiens, Tamim ben Hamad Al Thani, is reportedly eyeing the midfielder and has already contacted one of his representatives.
Camavinga is committed to Stade Rennais for one more season, but next summer will be hectic as big clubs around Europe will rush to buy him. Real Madrid is already putting the 17-year-old as a priority.
If the Emir wants Camavinga, then Leonardo, the club’s sporting director, will need to do everything to bring him to Paris.
