Paris Saint-Germain are still in pursuit of Eduardo Camavinga with the Rennes midfielder desperate to complete a move this summer, according to reports.

The 18-year-old has attracted attention from Real Madrid after two impressive seasons in Ligue 1 but the LaLiga side’s financial situation means a move to Spain now looks unlikely.

According to French newspaper L’Equipe (via AS) Camavinga wants to leave Rennes for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this summer but PSG may have to stump up to £43million for the youngster.
