The starlet is the third youngest to play for France and has already scored her first international goal for Les Bleus.
In October, AS reported that United had ‘put in place a mechanism’ to sign Camavinga, but there were also strong overtures from Los Blancos who have been in contact with the youngster’s representatives.
Since entering the scene and establishing himself as a top prospect for club and country, the midfielder has led a more reserved life and is not publicly entertaining leaving Rennes.

He said, “I see, I hear things. It’s nice to hear everything being said, but these things are not going to distract me.
“I know how to differentiate things. I’m in Rennes and the other clubs, that’s not a topic for the moment. We’ll see later.
“Now I go out a lot less, I hide a little more. Life outside of sport has changed and rivals on the pitch see me as differently than a year and a half ago.

“You don’t have to look around you so much and you have to focus on the essentials.
“I have two years left on my contract and there is time to talk about all this. There will be negotiations to renew, this is my training club and I would like to stay here, ”he added.
Despite Real’s advances to Camavinga’s entourage, the financial uncertainty caused by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic means there is a lot of uncertainty and pressure for the teenager to perform in the months to come.
