AC Milan have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, according to a report.
The 17-year-old has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Rossoneri over the past few months, with French outlet RMC Sport even stating Milan opened talks with the player’s entourage to gauge interest over a possible move.
Earlier this week, Mundo Deportivo published a report claiming that Stade Rennais have set their asking price at €50m for Camavinga, with Real Madrid and Milan cited as having interest.
The player himself admitted that he is flattered to hear that Milan and Real Madrid are keen, and both may have been handed a boost in their pursuit.
According to the Times (as cited by Calciomercato.com), if the qualifying rounds of European competitions for next season were eliminated – and therefore Stade Rennais were out of the Champions League – then the midfielder would be sold.
The report claims that this would be good news for the suitors, Milan, Borussia Dortmund and especially Real Madrid.
