Stade Renne sporting director Florian Maurice insists that the French club has no intention of selling Eduardo Camavinga amid rumours linking the 17-year old to Real Madrid.

Camavinga has certainly impressed this season and Los Blancos are reportedly interested in signing him as a back up to Casemiro.

But the French club’s sporting director believes that the youngster is a big part of the club’s project and even an 80 million euro offer wouldn’t be enough to convince the club to part ways with him.

‘Camavinga’s departure has not been spoken about,’ Maurice told French outlet RMC Sport. ‘There has never been a real interest. Since my arrival, I was clear that Camavinga would be included in the project.

‘If Real Madrid offer €80 million for him as is being talked about, the answer is no. We want him to stay so that he keeps developing at Rennes.

‘For me it is clear, this player must be part of the project for the coming season. We want to continue with this player. It is important for him that he continues with Stade Rennais. He’s a very good boy, a great player.

‘These are discussions we will have together. For our part, we have no intention of letting him go.

‘It is worth pointing out that the player has the ambition and maybe the desire to go elsewhere. I would listen to him, but at the moment he has a Rennes contract and we will then see how the transfer window is working.’

The talented midfielder has made 43 appearances for Rennes’ senior side.
