Real Madrid sign Camavinga

Real Madrid are close to completing a deal for Rennes midfielder, Eduardo Camavinga.

The LaLiga side will sign Camavinga on a five-year deal for €30million, ESPN reports.

Camavinga, who has one year left on his current contract with the Ligue 1 club, will undergo his medical on Tuesday.

Rennes didn’t want to see the 18-year-old leave as a free agent next summer and are said to be satisfied with the deal.

The transfer is expected to be made official on Tuesday.

Madrid have been following Camavinga for several seasons, with former manager, Zinedine Zidane a longtime admirer of the player who made his Ligue 1 debut as 16-year-old.

He will be expected to eventually replace Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in Real’s midfield.
