Real Madrid face a crucial La Liga fixture against Girona this Saturday, with injuries posing concerns for the team.
The former Rennes youth prospect is a France international and made a big impact in his breakthrough season for La Liga giants Real Madrid.
The Angola-born star joined the youth set-up of Rennes in 2013 before making his way through the age groups and eventually the first team.
Camavinga did not walk down a straight path to glory, having a number of life struggles. His parents became refugees after fleeing from Congo to Miconge, Angola, in the early 2000s.
Camavinga was born in a refugee camp in 2002, before moving to Fougeres in north-west France. This where he would grow up, as well as develop into one of Europe's hottest talents.
After signing with local youth club Drapeau de Fougeres, which then earned him a trial with Rennes.
By the age of 18, Camavinga has announced his name on the world stage and already caught the attention of Real Madrid.
Early first-team breakthrough
After being a member of Rennes' youth development program since the age of 11, Camavinga became their youngest-ever player.
At the age of 16 years and one month he signed his first professional contract and in 2019 Camavinga made his professional debut in a 3-3 draw with SCO Angers.
Despite only playing 364 minutes in the 2018/19 campaign, the young midfielder had already shown eye-catching ability.
In the 2019/20 season, Camavinga played 25 out of 38 Ligue 1 games, registering one goal and two assists.
After winning with Man of the Match during Rennes' 2-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain, Camavinga scored his first goal for the club - and the winning goal - against Lyon on December 15, 2019.

His terrific solo effort against Montpellier secured his side's first win of the season, with the midfielder becoming an integral part of a new-look Rennes squad.
His terrific displays would end up securing him promotion to the France senior team - and he announced himself on the international stage with an overhead kick goal during a 7-1 battering of Ukraine in October 2020.
Camavinga was establishing himself as one of the hottest young talents in French football and his potential had already attracted some of Europe’s big-hitters, including Real Madrid.
