Camavinga gets complicated without Zidane on the bench

The midfielder ends his contract in 2022, but aspires to leave the Breton team this summer: the presence of the French legend, the departure of his mentor and poor results are the keys

While digesting the bad start of Les Bleuets in the U21 Euro Cup (the French team could not with Denmark and lost by the minimum in its debut in the competition), Eduardo Camavinga does not forget the other front he has in French lands: march of Rennes. And there is only one route in his mind: that of Real Madrid, where he hopes to meet Zinedine Zidane, the French legend and current coach of the Whites. Camavinga is clear about it from the moment he learned that Zizou had seen his deployment now a year and a half ago, in August 2019, in a match against PSG, in which the young Eduardo, just 17 years old, led his team to a victory against the almighty Parisian entity (2-1, with his assistance in the second goal of the locals).

Since then, the relationship between the player and the coach has grown to such an extent that Camavinga only thinks of leaving this coming summer with the Whites as the final goal. His desire to work with Zidane is the reason that led him to make this decision. He thinks that he is still young and that he still has a long way to go, but that this transit would be much faster if he did it with Zidane, although he is also aware that doors cannot be closed: Chelsea, Manchester United , and of course, PSG himself, stalk his movements. The problem that could arise is whether he would come to Madrid if Zidane is no longer the white coach. Despite the fact that he has a contract until 2022, the coach has already been warning since January that he could not occupy the Madrid bench next season ... although he has not missed the train of greatly appreciating the work that his compatriot develops: "It is a A good player, he's young and has a future. But I'm not going to say anything else, he's not our player, "said the French coach at the press conference prior to the match against Elche a couple of weeks ago.

This month of March has been difficult for Camavinga. At the beginning of the month, his mentor and the coach who made him debut in the Rennes first team, Julien Stéphan, resigned as head of the Breton team, which has turned his situation around. With a contract until 2022, the talented midfielder prefers to leave now than wait a year. Represented by Jonathan Barnett (he has already warned that his transfer will be expensive) the same one who directs the reins of Gareth Bale, begins to lay the foundations of a future negotiation. In this aspect it clashes with the interests of the owner of the Rennais group, it is the Pinault family, one of the wealthiest dynasties in the French country. The owner, François-Henri Pinault, was born in that city in 1962… It won't be for money. But the bad results of this campaign (it is quite difficult to get into the positions that give access to European competitions: it is 15 points behind Monaco, fourth) can make that option vary.

But everything happens through the continuity of Zidane on the Madrid bench. If he continues, Camavinga would have a great percentage of chances of landing in the white team. Meanwhile, wait for the turn of the second game of the French in the European Under-21. He wants to reverse the defeat of the first match by a win against Russia. Then there will be time to think about a future at Madrid ... at the hands of Zidane. Without Marseille, it would be more complicated.
