Eduardo Camavinga has been on cloud nine since signing for Real Madrid. The young midfielder, who has been tipped to succeed Paul Pogba as the star of the French national team, is making the biggest leap of his career.
At his former club, Rennes, they were confident of keeping Camavinga for another year, for the growth of the player and the team itself. But the midfielder, whose contract expired in 2022, was not at his happiest and it was decided between all parties that he should leave.
Bruno Génésio, his coach at the French club, told L’Équipe. “It had become difficult for him here. It was also difficult for us because we all wanted was to see him happy. In my opinion, he wasn’t feeling good. The best solution would have been to extend his contract for another year, but looking back, I think it’s good that he’s going abroad,” he said.
