Eduardo Camavinga has been one of Real Madrid’s top transfer targets for the last two years. The 18-year-old is seen as a potential successor to some of the ageing Real Madrid midfield core. The French international’s current contract expires with Rennes in June of 2022. Rennes sporting director, Florian Maurice, spoke to the press regarding the latest around a potential contract renewal for their prized asset.

“We will see what happens at the end of the season. We are continuing discussions with his agents to find a solution, before discussing the possibility of seeing him leave on a free in 2022. I think he is very respectful of the club that formed him. So, I don’t think the situation will come to that,” Maurice affirmed.

The sporting director is directing a lot of his time and energy into securing a new contract for their player. If the young star ultimately decides to leave this summer, Rennes will be sure to capture as much of his value as possible to help off-set some of the losses from the pandemic as well as the loss in TV revenue for Ligue 1. It’s still unclear whether Real Madrid will be in a financial position to sign the player this summer.
