In a recent print edition, AS has claimed that Real Madrid‘s pursuit of Rennes starlet Eduardo Camavinga could be derailed by Manchester United next summer. It is understood that the Red Devils pose a ‘great threat’ to Los Blancos’ chances of landing the French whizkid at the end of this campaign (transcripted and translated by Sport Witness).
Camavinga’s Majestic Rise In The French First Division
Camavinga has begun this season on an impressive fashion as he bagged one goal and one assist in six matches for his boyhood club in the Ligue 1. The French prospect is currently considered amongst Europe’s most promising youngsters after he broke out as a first-team starter at the Roazhon Park last year.
The Miconje-born midfield ace made 36 appearances for Rennes in the previous campaign, netting one goal and providing two assists in multiple competitions. Camavinga did to well to make himself effective in both halves and performed well by averaging 4.2 tackles, 1.4 interceptions, 1.3 clearances, 0.6 shots and 0.8 dribbles per game in the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season. He proved his value as an accurate ball-distributor after completing 87.7% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
Camavinga could find a move to a top club like Real Madrid too appealing to turn down, so it makes sense for Zinedine Zidane to engineer a move to bring him to the Spanish capital next summer.
What Does The French Wonderkid Bring To The Table?
Camavinga is a tough-tackling midfielder who can contribute in a variety of ways at the centre of the park. He is proficient at sensing the danger and earning the ball back for his side. The French starlet can keep things tidy when retaining possession in midfield but needs to be a bit more inventive with his passes in the opposition half. He is one of the hardest-working players in Julien Stephan’s squad and has got the desire to succeed at the highest level.
Should Zidane Step Up His Efforts To Land Camavinga Next Summer?
The 17-year-old has the ceiling to become a transcendental talent in the future, so Los Blancos should make it a priority to step up their efforts and sign him at the end of this season. He will add some variety and depth to Zidane’s midfield department and could serve as a decent long-term replacement for the ageing midfield duo of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.
Furthermore, Zidane needs to build for the future if he wants to bring a sustained period of success to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Recruiting Camavinga will help the French head coach establish long-term success at Madrid in the years to come.
