Real Madrid doesn’t have the funds to make a statement signing this summer.
Real Madrid are very keen on signing the 18-year old French midfielder who has also been linked with Bayern Munich and Arsenal.
Camavinga’s contract with Rennes will expire next summer and the French club could be forced to sell him this summer.
Former Real Madrid Steve McManaman believes Real Madrid may not make a move for Camavinga in the summer even though they need a player in that position.
McManaman said to HorseRacing.net: “Real Madrid are linked with Eduardo Camavinga all the time because of Zidane and the French connection.
“Rennes surely would want a lot of money for the teenager and I doubt that Real Madrid would have the finances to bring him in, although they do need a player in that position as Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are getting to that stage in their career where they’re becoming less influential.
“Despite their financial troubles, with Florentino Perez being voted in as president once again and all the nonsense that went on with the European Super League, I wouldn’t be surprised if Real Madrid still had ambitions about making a statement signing such as Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland instead of opting for the signing of a young midfielder.
“Real have had to get the likes of Gareth Bale, Luka Jovic and James Rodriguez off their wage-bill to keep costs low, so to go and spend around £60 million on an 18 year-old midfielder would surprise me, when you know that Real Madrid crave the signings of ready-made superstars.”
