Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has received offers to join Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich in the upcoming transfer window and is considering both of them instead of waiting until the summer of 2021 to complete his signing for Real Madrid, which was initially his plan. That’s what Diario AS are reporting this Monday.
Los Blancos will not try to sign the young and promising midfielder this summer as they will save money due to the Coronavirus pandemic, which has made an impact in the club’s budget, as president Florentino Perez revealed to the press right after the team conquered their 34th Liga title.
Camavinga’s future could very well be decided in the two rounds that Stade Rennais will need to advance in order to clinch their presence in the 2020-2021 edition of the UEFA Champions League.
If the French side manage to feature in the Champions League, they will raise Camavinga’s salary and the midfielder will play relevant minutes as a starter in an elite competition. However, Camavinga could try to force his club to accept Bayern or PSG’s offer if Stade Rennais can’t secure their spot in the Champions League.
Ultimately, Madrid have decided to wait and bet on Camavinga’s reported desire to play for Zinedine Zidane. Real Madrid were very close to completing a move for Camavinga before the Coronavirus pandemic forced them to change their minds, cut the salaries of the current roster and save some money.
Los Blancos were always going to face some tough competition to sign the midfielder and it looks that it won’t be that easy to convince the French midfielder of waiting until the summer of 2021.
