Real Madrid transfer news: Los Blancos looking at Camavinga alternative


According to news coming out from Spain, Los Blancos have turned their attentions away from teenage sensation Eduardo Camavinga.

Real Madrid have reportedly turned their attentions away from Rennes’ teenage sensation Eduardo Camavinga, with Los Blancos now setting their sights on his teammate Brandon Soppy.

Camavinga, 18, has been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu after his phenomenal performances last season helped Rennes qualify for the Champions League group stages for the first time in the club’s 119-year-long history.

However, after the defensive midfielder’s form suffered a nosedive in the first half of the ongoing campaign, Don Balon claims that Madrid have decided to pull the plug on his pursuit. The Spanish news publication also claims that Florentino Perez is now against meeting Camavinga’s €55m release clause.

While they are no longer interested in signing the teenager, Soppy, one of Camavinga’s teammates, has reportedly caught the eye of Madrid’s higher-ups. The 18-year-old might not be a permanent name in Rennes’ starting XI but has impressed everyone with his pace and power.

Los Blancos are yet to decide whether to make a move for Soppy next summer or wait until he shows more glimpses of his potential at the Ligue 1 outfit. But they will continue to monitor his progress with the belief that the player can become one of the best in his position in the near future.
