From Spain: Real Madrid join Milan in race for Ligue 1 sensation

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face competition in their bid to sign Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, according to a report.

A report from earlier in the month first linked the Rossoneri with a move for Camavinga, who made his breakthrough with the Ligue 1 side aged just 16.

The Rennes manager – Julien Stéphan – has instilled a lot of trust in the youngster, playing him in all six league games to start the 2019-20 season despite being just 17 years of age.

Il Corriere dello Sport (via recently reported that Milan were sending a scout to watch the Angola-born talent in a game between Brest and Rennes last weekend.

However, according to Spanish outlet, Real Madrid have also been hard at work scouting Camavinga, a player who has ‘caught their eye the most’ out of all they have observed.

The report notes that the teenager was voted Player of the Month for Ligue 1 by his peers in August, winning the Union of French Football Players award.

Camavinga is currently on a deal which runs until 2022, having penned his first professional contract with the club last December.
