Barcelona are reportedly considering a move for Renne’s star midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.

The Frenchman has been heavily courted by Real Madrid in recent months and is expected to leave Lille for one of Europe’s top clubs this summer.

Mundo Deportivo reported that Barcelona have joined Real Madrid in the race for Eduardo Camavinga. The Catalans are looking for a long-term replacement for Sergio Busquets, who is approaching the latter stages of his career.

Camavinga became a key member of the Ligue 1 side during his second season with the club. His impressive performances for Rennes even earned him a call-up to the French national team, for whom he has made three appearances and scored one goal.

The 18-year-old was heavily linked with Real Madrid last summer but decided to stay at Rennes. He is now reportedly ready to make a move to one of Europe’s top clubs, where he will be able to develop his game and challenge for silverware.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is believed to be a huge fan of Camavinga. The French tactician tried to bring the Rennes star to Madrid last year and is likely to resume his pursuit of the midfielder when the summer transfer window opens.

Rennes are reportedly looking for a fee in the region of £70 million for Camavinga. This could prove to be an obstacle for Barcelona unless they are able to raise capital by selling some key players.
