Report: Real Madrid may have clear path as Milan pull out of race for €60m midfielder

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been priced out of the race to sign Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga this summer, according to a report.

The Rossoneri have been repeatedly linked with a move for the 17-year-old, with RMC Sport even reporting that Milan have opened talks with the player’s entourage to gauge interest in a possible move to the San Siro.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Barcelona have all been credited with interest by various sources too – but it appears to be Real Madrid who are the frontrunners to land his signature.

According to a report on Calciomercato.com – which cites Spanish outlet AS – Stade Rennais are demanding at least €60million for their prized young talent if he is to leave this summer.

That is a figure which Milan are currently not willing to pay given the shackles of Financial Fair Play and the fact that the balance sheets are under serious scrutiny from owners Elliott Management and CEO Ivan Gazidis.
