The 20-year-old starlet, who has shone both as a defensive midfielder and as a left-back since arriving from Rennes, is regarded as a key player for the present and the future by The Meringues.

Los Blancos signed the highly-rated youngster from Ligue 1 side Rennes at the age of just 18 and has emerged as a key part of the squad to help an aging engine room including Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.
Camavinga is believed to be very happy at the Santiago Bernabeu and can not see his long-term future anywhere else despite links of him moving to the Premier League this summer.
