Rennes, sporting director of Florian Maurice, stated the side of the Ligue 1 had no intention of selling teenage phenomenon Eduardo Camavinga.
“No acknowledgement has been made of the departure of Camavinga.” Maurice told RMC Sport. “It is obvious to me that this player has to be part of the season to come team. We want the player to continue.
“There has never been any real involvement. I was obvious from my arrival that Camavinga was going to be involved in the initiative.
“There are conversations that we should have together, and we don’t plan to let him go for our part.
“It’s worth remembering that the athlete has the ambition, and even the ability to move somewhere. I’d listen to him but he’s got a Rennes contract at the moment and then we’ll see how the transfer window works.”
The player has been linked to Real Madrid, even rumoured to have received a bid for € 80 million (£72 million/$89 million):
“If Real Madrid is offering him € 80 million as discussed, then the answer is no. We want him to live in Rennes so he keeps on improving.”
