#2 Eduardo Camavinga (Club: Stade Rennais F.C. | Age: 18)

French midfielder Eduardo Camavinga is yet another top prospect that is coming up to receive a lot of attention and fame. It’s all justified given the youngster is super talented and is definitely going to be a superstar in the future if he maintains his game. He’s been playing for Stade de Rennes since 2018 and has caught the notice of many big clubs all across Europe.

Camavinga would be one of the perfect replacements for Busquets. He’s calm and collected in midfield and he’s extremely smart. His overall gameplay is very clever compared to other players his age, which is what makes him excel so well at such a young age. He’s absolutely brilliant at moving the ball around just like Busquets.

He can be the key to yet another brilliant midfield trio at Barcelona in the future. He is extremely good at controlling the tempo of the game. The Frenchman is also diverse as a footballer. While he’s a defensive player and can play as a central defensive midfielder, he is also capable of playing as a CM and the role of a double pivot.

The Rennes man is capable of brilliant passing. His work rate is out of this world which means he can catch up to counter attacks and disrupt opposition build-up in order to regain possession. He is also brilliant at committing tactical fouls which was a huge part of Busquets’ game at Barcelona during his prime.

Camavinga will be a huge addition to this Barcelona squad if they are looking for talented youngsters in order to build a secure future.
