Real Madrid target Eduardo Camavinga seems to be set to stay in his current club Stade Rennais for at least another season. At least, that’s what Rennais’ president Nicolas Holveck said to French radio station RTL today.

Camavinga is on Madrid’s radar but Los Blancos might end up staying put on the transfer market after the Coronavirus pandemic, bringing back quality loanees like Achraf Hakimi and Martin Odegaard and then sign reinforcements in the summer of 2021.

“The project for Eduardo Camavinga is to keep developing and making progress in Stade Rennais. Next season will be the one where he establishes himself as an elite player here,” said Holveck about the rumors suggesting that Madrid will try to sign him in the upcoming transfer window.

Holveck is echoing the words from Stade Rennais coach Julien Stephane, who believes that it would be better for Camavinga to stay in the club for another season in order to keep improving and maturing as a player.

Madrid seem determined about signing Camavinga in the future, though, so they could always reach some kind of agreement with Stade Rennais now while allowing the young midfielder to stay in his club for another season, given that it will be important for him to keep getting minutes as a starter.

Camavinga’s value in the market could increase if he keeps performing well for Rennais, so Real Madrid face an interesting decision if they truly want to secure his signing.


Journalism Corner, Episode 1: Persistence, and escaping your comfort zone

Last week, I launched a new segment on the Managing Madrid Podcast: "Journalism Corner". You'll get this at the end of each weekend episode. Here is the first one, where I discuss the importance of challenging your comfort zone, embracing fear, developping the habit of persistence, and expanding your social circle in a way that fuels your confidence in podcasting. You may not realize just how important your social vibe is, or how much discomfort will actually propel you forward. As always, my emails are open, and one-on-one mentorship with me is a thing, which you can find more about on: kiyansobhani.com Follow me on Instagram: Instagram.com/KiyanSo Follow me on Twitter: Twitter.com/KiyanSo
