Real Madrid eye Rennes teenage star Eduardo Camavinga

Teenage Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has been added to Real Madrid’s transfer shortlist, according to Marca.

The 16-year-old has caught the eye with his performances in Ligue 1 and he has even started all eight league matches for his club to date this campaign.

Camavinga became the youngest ever professional for the club when he made his senior debut on 14 December 2018 at the age of 16 and one month.

He has been a part of Rennes' system since the age of 11 and is regarded to be one of the brightest prospects in French football.

Born in Cabinda, Angola, Camavinga holds Congolese citizenship through his parents. He has lived in France since his second birthday and is said to be currently in the process of acquiring French citizenship.

He is now just one month shy of his 17th birthday and Madrid officials are said to be considering his incorporation into their Castilla side.
