Rennes want €100 m for Camavinga

As reported by L'Equipe, Rennes intends to keep the jewel of its academy for as long as possible – the same academy that has churned out players such as Gourcuff, Ousmane Dembelé, Brahimi and Doucouré in recent years.

L’Equipe claims that Rennes president Olivier Letang has set his price at €100 million, meaning it would not be an easy operation for Madrid should they decide to pursue the promising youngster, who has already put in stand-out performances against the like of PSG, Lyon and Marseille.
