Eduardo Camavinga, 17, became last Tuesday the youngest player to make his debut for the French national team in more than a century, since 1914. A record of precocity that acquires greater merit since it is the current world champion team . The emergence of Camavinga has put him on the radar of major European clubs that have knocked on his door in recent months, including Real Madrid.
But the Rennes midfielder for the moment remains with his feet on the ground. Camavinga was this Sunday one of the protagonists of Téléfoot, the popular football program on French television TF1, where He commented on the interest of Real Madrid with these words: “When a great club is presented to you, you like it. But I don't eat my head with that”said the footballer.
From figure to figure, the program also asked him if another French soccer star, Kylian Mbappé, had tried to convince him to move to the Parc des Princes: “If Kylian has told me about PSG? No, we talked about everything. Staying at Rennes has been a choice that I have made with my family and today I am happy about that”, settled the midfielder.
After uncovering last season in Ligue 1 (in the three games played this season, he has already scored a goal against Montpellier), Camavinga will have the opportunity this season to peek into the great showcase of the Champions League with Rennes.

Who knows if the draw on October 1 will give him the opportunity to face a Real Madrid that will go for him in 2021.
