“Eduardo will have a choice of many clubs if Rennes decides to release him. They’ll be one of the four out of five clubs in the world he could go to.
“Eduardo would like to play for a top club. Madrid is one of those top clubs in the world, as is Barcelona. “
When asked if Camavinga would cost more than 50 million euros, he added: “I think so.”
