Eduardo Camavinga produced a scintillating cameo appearance against Manchester City, with his individual highlights making for sensational viewing.
Camavinga starred as Real Madrid booked their spot in the Champions League final after beating Man City 3-1 on the night (6-5 on aggregate).
He replaced Luka Modric in the 75th minute and completely changed the game, giving his team the impetus to secure a dramatic comeback.
The 19-year-old was at the heart of each of Real’s goals as he crossed to Karim Benzema for the first goal, won the ball back to start the attack for the second goal and played a crucial pass in the award of the penalty for the third goal.
Camavinga also put in a shift defensively, making brilliant interceptions as he stifled Man City’s attacks.
His range of passing, ball carrying and composure at such a young age confirms his status as a generational talent.
@BnsComps shared a clip of his stunning performance, with fans online marveling over his display.
Needless to say, Camavinga’s performance sent social media wild.
One Twitter user wrote: “This dude is literally a Pogba-Kante hybrid it is nuts. He is going to the very top.”
A second tweeted: “Boy is a game changer. Attack and defense. Should start ahead of Kroos in the final as there won’t be a second leg to turn things around. Can’t believe he’s just 19.”
A third added: “If Declan Rice is worth £150m, this lad is worth £1.5bn.”
Considering the impact he made against Man City, a place in the starting XI for the Champions League final could be on the cards.
But, one thing’s for sure, Real snapping up Camavinga for just £35 million is an incredible piece of business.
A budding superstar who has all the attributes to reach the top.
