Real Madrid have long shown an interest in the midfielder and likely would have tried to sign him in the summer, but for being hit hard financially by the coronavirus pandemic.
More-recently though, Manchester United have emerged as one of the front-runners to sign Camavinga.
United chief Ed Woodward also gave boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a boost by revealing he would be backed heavily in the summer transfer window.
And having now signed with Barnett’s Stellar Group – who also have Chelsea star Mason Mount on their books – French outlet Le Parisien has claimed it opens the door to a Premier League move.

Barnett revealed the news on Friday, saying: “We are the official representatives of Eduardo Camavinga.
“I thank the family for their trust in me and our agency.
“I look forward to cooperating with them to ensure Eduardo’s best interests.”
Jorge Mendes, whose Gestifute agency looks after Cristiano Ronaldo, was rumoured to be keen on signing Camavinga.

Pini Zahavi – who sorted Neymar’s world-record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain as well as managing Rio Ferdinand’s career – was also linked with adding the youngster to his client list.
But Camavinga and his family opted to sign for Barnett’s Stellar Group in a move Premier League clubs will hope means he’s open to a move to England.
