The midfielder came through the youth ranks at Rennes and made his first-team debut at the age of 16, making him the club’s youngest ever professional.
Rennes have kept the Camavinga out of their starting line-up for their last three games due to the on-going speculation regarding his future.
The club have maintained that the midfielder would either sign an extension or be sold this summer and it appears as if they have accepted his departure.

Speaking earlier this summer, Rennes boss Bruno Genesio insisted the situation would be resolved before the end of the window.
‘We have already stressed several times that we cannot afford to remain in this situation concerning an international player like him,’ he said.
‘It’s part of a career to have important decisions to make, he has a very important one (decision) to make for his future, and we at the club also have our interests to defend.
‘I hope we find a solution that everyone is satisfied with.’

It had looked as if PSG would win the race for the youngster’s signature but Real have turned their attentions to the midfielder after being unable to agree a deal for Kylian Mbappe.
As well as impressing at club level, Camavinga has made an impression on the international stage.
He made his senior France debut in September 2020 at the age of 17 and scored his first international goal a month later with a sensational overhead kick.
