Fierce rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to battle it out for 16-year-old​ wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga, who is valued at an extraordinary €40m. 


The midfielder has already become a key member of the Stade Rennais first team, making 12 appearances in all competitions for the French club, which included a brilliant man of the match display against PSG, where he also bagged himself an assist.

According to ​Mundo Deportivo, Barca director of football Eric Abidal is a massive fan of the player after scouting him on multiple occasions, and believes he is as good as the club's stand-out youngster Ansu Fati.


With Sergio Busquets now 31 years old and approaching the end of his career, the signing of Camavinga would make sense as a long term replacement for the Spaniard.


However, they will face stiff competition from rivals ​Real Madrid, with manager Zinedine Zidane extremely keen on bringing the youngster into the squad.

Both clubs have been told that they will have to dish out a whopping €40m for the Congolese, which is a massive price tag for a 16-year-old who came into the picture just this season.


If Camavinga continues to perform well for the rest of 2019/20 campaign, then it is likely that his price will inflate even more, and he could become one of the most sought after players in the world during next summer's transfer window.
