Rennes midfielder Camavinga: Opponents joke about Real Madrid rumours

Rennes midfielder Edouardo Camavinga has revealed some opponents have joked with him about Real Madrid's interest.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane is a fan of the 17 year-old and wants to bring him to Madrid this summer.

The teen told Ouest France: "Honestly, I do not focus too much on that. Certainly, it's nice that big clubs are interested in me, but conversely, I'm not too interested in that. Especially since I am well in Rennes.

"We'll see what happens next... I let my parents and my agents manage this.

"Sometimes I'm quickly done on social networks and I see things or friends send me. Once in Amiens, an opponent said to me: 'We have to exchange our shirts before you go to Real Madrid'. But I didn't really want to joke.

"What I know about my future is that I will go to Fougères for free to finish my career."
