Camavinga is just 18-years-old, and was born in Angola to parents fleeing war in the Congo and brought up in France. He came through the youth system at Rennes and broke into the first team in 2019, wowing observers with his mature performances. He became a senior French international in 2020.
Madrid are keen to strengthen in midfield. They have a spectacularly successful trident in Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos, but each are getting on in age. Camavinga brings a wealth of potential to the Santiago Bernabeu, and gives Carlo Ancelotti an alternative in the middle of the park.
