Real Madrid have won the race for the up-and-coming midfielder Eduardo Camavinga despite several attempts from Manchester United to lure him away from Rennes.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Camavinga has signed a long-term contract with Real Madrid, with Los Blancos dishing out €31m plus add-ons to acquire his signature.

The youngster was in the final year of his contract at Roazhon Park, with a host of Europe’s notable clubs looking to land him, including Paris Saint-Germain.

Although the Spanish juggernauts seemed to be working hard on completing the signing of PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe, they eventually ended up strengthening their midfield department.

Camavinga has taken Ligue 1 by storm since making his senior debut at Rennes in December 2018 at the age of 16, soaking up the limelight as one of Europe’s finest young talents.

The 18-year-old bears much resemblance to the likes of N’Golo Kante, though there is a genuine feeling that he has better offensive characteristics than his famous compatriot.

Good with the ball at his feet as he is at winning it back, the French sensation is a perfect example of a modern-day midfielder.

Camavinga registered a goal and two assists from 35 Ligue 1 appearances last season, becoming the focal point of Rennes’ set-up.

His arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu is likely to relieve the pressure of Casemiro, given the two are similar types of players.

Camavinga has put pen to paper on a five-year deal in the Spanish capital.
