According to a report by Sport Bild, Bayern Munich have shortlisted Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga for the midfield next season. The 18-year-old Frenchman, previously linked with Real Madrid, is almost certain to leave his club this summer as his contract enters its final year.

Camavinga plays as a defensive midfielder, and may be Bayern’s final answer to the departure of Thiago Alcantara last season. Meanwhile, Madrid likely see him as a replacement to their ageing midfield core consisting of Casemiro, Toni Kroos, and Luka Modric. With both teams financially hamstrung by the pandemic, it’ll be interesting to see if either side can actually acquire the young Frenchman, rated as one of the best midfield prospects in Ligue 1.
