Romano: AC Milan’s plan changes as Real Madrid lead charge for €50m+ wonderkid

By Isak Möller -

Eduardo Camavinga has taken Ligue 1 by storm, cementing a spot in the starting eleven of Rennes at the age of 17. In addition to his technical quality, the youngster is displaying a leadership that is rarely seen at his age. 

Therefore, as Calciomercato.com’s Fabrizio Romano states, Milan’s plan for the player has changed completely. Every game, there seems to be a new top club present to observe Camavinga, meaning the competition will be fierce.

Real Madrid are leading the charge and have already initiated contact with the player’s entourage, as Zinedine Zidane is keen on bringing in the Frenchman. However, there’s still a long way to go before we can talk about a purchase.

The price of Camavinga, per the reporter, has increased to over €50m and this has made the Rossoneri’s plan very complicated. Their chief scout, Geoffrey Moncada, and his team have been following the player for a long time.

However, it will still require a big investment to snatch the defensive midfielder. As of today, Milan aren’t very keen on these types of deal, looking to rebuild the team with economically efficient deals.

The request of €50m thus becomes very high, while the player would request a salary of over €4m per year. With the Premier League calling, in addition to Real Madrid, it’s more than a complicated scenario for the Rossoneri.
