Now is not the time to focus on that. “ This is what Eduardo Camavinga (18) declared on May 9 about the interest of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in him. After a high-flying 2019-2020 exercise, the French international (3 selections, 1 goal) had made the decision to perfect his training at the highest level by staying an additional year at Stade Rennais, despite many requests.
