Eduardo Camavinga joins Real Madrid: Remembering his masterclass v PSG at age 16

Eduardo Camavinga was absolutely incredible vs PSG!

Eduardo Camavinga's €40 million move from Rennes to Real Madrid is now official.

The 18-year-old sensation has penned a six-year deal with the Spanish side and it's a signing that could prove to be a masterstroke in the years to come.

Camavinga is viewed as one of the brightest prospects in world football and Real Madrid see him as the long-term successor to Luka Modric.

The teenage midfielder has already been capped three times by France's senior side and produced several masterclasses in Ligue 1 action.

There's one performance in particular from his days in the French top-flight that stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Back in 2019, a 16-year-old Camavinga started in a home match for Rennes versus Paris Saint-Germain and he performed to a ridiculously high standard.

Rennes won the match 2-1 and it was Camavinga who grabbed the assist for Romain del Castillo's winning goal in the 48th-minute of proceedings.

That goal contribution was just the icing on the cake, though.

No Rennes player had more touches of the ball than Camavinga in the game and he also recorded a 98% passing accuracy.

Unsurprisingly, his individual highlights v PSG went viral back in 2019 and now that he's completed a move to Real Madrid, it seems only fair to revisit them.

So, without further ado, let's take a look at footage of a 16-year-old Camavinga looking like a seasoned veteran up against some of the best players in the world.

Is that the greatest performance by a 16-year-old footballer this century? It's certainly up there, that's for sure.

The sky really is the limit for Camavinga and he'll no doubt have a key role to play in Real Madrid's first-team during the 2021/22 season.

It'll take a very special player to replace Modric at the Santiago Bernabeu and the Frenchman might just be the man capable of doing it.

No pressure, Eduardo...
