L'Equipe: Rennes turned down Barca offer for 16-year-old wonderkid Camavinga
- Apart from Barca a host of other European elite clubs launched bids for the youngster.
- The 16-year-old has lately bagged a surprising assist in a 2-1 win over PSG.
According to French outlet L'Equipe, Barca, Spurs, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Bayern Munich all made attempts to sign the 16-year-old sensation Eduardo Camavinga in summer. However, Rennes turned down all offers straight away.
The 16-year-old signed his first professional contract with the French side only in December.
Asked about Camavinga's triumphal performance against the Ligue 1 champions PSG, Rennes boss Julien Stephan said: "He played a very interesting match, indeed, like the whole team. We are talking to him. He is someone who is also very intellectually gifted, who knows how to question himself, who knows how to ask the right questions.
"Many of the professionals have taken him under their wing because he is very respectful in the dressing room and very attentive to their advice. He blossomed with us this summer."
