Camavinga, 18, has been with Rennes since he joined their youth academy all the way back in 2013.

After enjoying a hugely impressive breakthrough, which has included senior international call ups, the young midfielder has emerged as one of Europe’s most exciting prospects.

Having recently switched agencies to team-up with leading super-agent Jonathan Barnett of Stellar ICM, there has been recent speculation the teenager is eyeing a huge move.

The latest in the ongoing saga comes from European outlet AS who claim the young Frenchman has his heart set on a dream switch to Real Madrid.

It has been claimed that due to the financial implications the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is having, Camavinga is prepared to delay his move to allow Los Blancos time to recover their losses.

The outlet also note that Zinedine Zidane sees Paris-Saint Germain’s Kylian Mbappe as his top priority but should a move fail, will turn his attentions to Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
