Man City join Tottenham and Arsenal in scouting 16y/o wonderkid

Man City are on the hunt again and this time it’s for 16-year-old Eduardo Camavinga according to Mail Online. The Football Manc Cave is taking a closer look at the ‘wonder-kid.’

The 16-year-old is apparently being chased by a lot of big clubs. Arsenal and Tottenham are both said to be joining in the hunt for him. Scouts from all three clubs were at Roazhon Park to watch the midfielder, ‘steal the show.’ He helped Rennes beat PSG 2-1 on Sunday night.

Who is he?

He started his youth career at AGL-Drapeu Fougeres and moved to Rennes youth academy. In 13 appearances for Rennes second team, he managed 4 goals which saw him break into the senior team.

Representatives at Rennes have explained how the youngster knows just how to question himself, listens to feedback and is very respectful which is why so many people have taken him under their wing and this has helped him blossom over the summer.

Camavinga has been mostly used as a defensive midfielder in the past, however, his technical and physical attributes have seen him be compared to Paul Pogba. The 16-year-old also has the same agent as Ousmane Dembele.

Eduardo signed his first professional contract with Rennes in December 2018 and this made him the youngest ever signing for the club on record. The 6th Of April 2019 saw him make his Ligue 1 debut in a 3-3 draw with Angers SCO.

Pep Guardiola has got an eye for young talent and knows exactly what to do in order to train them to the highest standard. It’s just the battle of getting pen to paper than he’s got on his hands as he fights with the top clubs from England and Europe to sign the teenager.
