Eduardo Camavinga made his Real Madrid debut against Celta Vigo, and his personal highlight reel shows he could be a great player for years to come.
Camavinga was linked with a move from Rennes all summer, with just one year left on his deal in Ligue 1, with both Manchester United and PSG rumoured to be interested.
However, after their failed bid for Kylian Mbappe, it was Real who made a move for the 18-year-old, with the teenager confirming it was always a dream to play for Los Blancos.
On Sunday night he finally got to fulfil that dream, when he came on as a second half substitute during the game against Celta, with Carlo Ancelotti's team 3-2 up.
Camavinga was able to make an impact, scoring his first goal in an eventual 5-2 win, and his all round highlights show how good a signing he is.

Eduardo Camavinga didn't score a single goal in his last 43 apps for Stade Rennais, having last netted a goal for his old club more than a year ago, on 29 August 2020.
He scored one tonight though, just 6 minutes into his Real Madrid debut. 🤩#RealMadridCelta pic.twitter.com/3nMSpSod4N

Real did have to dig deep before Camavinga had even come on, as they twice went behind on their return to the Bernabeu for the first time in 560 days.
Santi Mina gave the visitors the lead after just four minutes, before Karim Benzema equalised in the 24th minute. Celta took the lead again when Franco Cervi scored, and they held that lead to half time.
Benzema though made it 2-2 a minute into the second half before Vinicius Junior made it 3-2 and Camavinga doubled the lead.
It was Benzema who had the final say though, making it 5-2, and rounding off his hat-trick from the penalty spot with three minutes of normal time left.
