Angolan defensive midfielder Eduardo Camavinga is set to snub a move to Barcelona in a bid to favour a move to Real Madrid when the summer transfer market opens.
The 17-year old player, born in Angola’s northern Cabinda province, moved to France at an early age and currently plays for French League one team Rennes with a contract lasting until 2022 and contract termination of 80 million Euros.
Camavinga has been on the radar of Barcelona but the Camp Nou outfit backed out of the deal after Rennes’ directors demanded 50 million Euros for the services of the player.
Camavinga caught the attention of many top clubs with his performance in the 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Ligue 1.
The likes of Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham, Real Madrid and Barcelona were all attracted by his performance.
Camavinga is yet to make a senior debut for either Angola or France, but he was called by the Angolan coach for the Under-17 World Cup held in Brazil, and he could not play despite being already registered by the Angolan Football Federation.
