Real have been following him for more than a year. At one point, he seemed to be the first favorite to sign. Maybe until yesterday, when Mino Raiola "set fire" to the European market by announcing that Paul Pogba was leaving Manchester United.
If the French midfield works and Zinedine Zidane wins Pogba, Real Madrid will be left without Eduardo Camavinga, however, the young midfielder will be interesting to many clubs. As it usually happens when talent from the "league of five" appears, the most powerful immediately attack it.
According to France Football, in recent days, the 18-year-old midfielder has been highly ranked among the leaders of Bayern and several sources suggest a potential move to Munich. With a remark, not immediately, but in the summer of 2021 at the earliest France Football claims that the Bayern scouts saw the talent of Camavinga in detail and that they agree in the assessment that he is playing maturely, even though he became an adult on November 10.
In Allianz Arena they rarely hire teenagers, they usually buy players of mature football age (from 24 onwards), however, in the case of the new French national team player, they are ready to make a different step and project him into the successor of Javi Martinez as the defensive midfielder because Martinez's contract expires at the end of the season.
Salihamidzic is delighted
The sports director of the Bavarians, Hasan Salihamidžić, is delighted with the way Eduardo Camavinga understands the game, what decisions he makes and how much he is on the ground, despite the fact that his name is present in public every day.
In order to make sure that he is mentally fit for Bayern, he wants to let him play in Rennes just to follow him for another half of the season, to send him further during that period. He is probably personally convinced of his qualities and that is why he wants to buy such a player.
The reason why the Germans are careful lies in the fact that in the last five years, since they brought Joshua Kimmich from Stuttgart, and loaned Kingsley Coman from Juventus, they have only brought a football player under the age of 20 once.
And that is Renato Sanchez, who did promise a lot, but he wasn't good at all so they made a big mistake. From there, the four eyes are open. Bayern put him on the wish list, they have in mind that Eduardo Camavinga recently changed his agent, Jonathan Barent took him under his wing, and now Rennes is asking for 50,000,000 euros in compensation.
And the European champion only once in history gave more money than requested when they bought Lucas Hernandez from Atletico Madrid for 80,000,000.
