Marca even dares to put figures on the possible transfer of Camavinga. They claim the operation could go from 50 to 60 million euros.
If, as this source claims, Madrid decides to go for Camavinga, the club will be facing some stern competition. Clubs like City, Dortmund and PSG have also been interested in the midfielder.
In any case, their interest is not news In fact, Zidane's club reportedly tried to sign him before, but without success... According to the French press, it was this attempt at negotiation between Madrid and Rennes that led to the dismissal of the French club's president, Olivier Létang.
