We are witnessing the birth of something truly special.

Eduardo Camavinga is just 17, but he is strutting around in Rennes' midfield as if he's a seasoned professional, and his performance in the 2-1 win over Montpellier was another example of his effortless style.

What was Camavinga's overall display like?

📷 Match Snapshot

Camavinga is a much-coveted talent even at a young age, with Real Madrid thought to be scouting him and his game is to create balance and ball circulation from the centre of the pitch, which he did with distinction.

He made 60 passes with a 92% completion rate, which ranked him #4 in the contest. He also won 2/2 tackles and 1/2 aerial duels, while making eight recoveries.

But interestingly he completed three dribbles, which shows a player who is more than comfortable in his ability to carry the ball forward with composure and incision - as witnessed in his superb winning goal.

⚽ ⏱️ 77' With the score 1-1 and both sides down to 10 men, Camavinga played a quick one-two on the left flank before driving in on goal.

He dribbled with pace and directness into the area, stepped over the ball twice and shifted it onto his left to strike across the goalkeeper and into the far corner for an excellent goal.

What Next?

Camavinga is tied down to a deal at Rennes but with the transfer window open until October, a few more performances like this may see cheque books being brandished.

In a non-covid year, he might already have a deal lined up, but with the market unpredictable at the moment it's likely he will stay at Rennes and learn his craft before taking the step up.
