Manchester United stance on Eduardo Camavinga in transfer window

Eduardo Camavinga is out of contract at Rennes next year and is an option for Man United as they consider a midfield signing.


Eduardo Camavinga is one of the midfielders under consideration by Manchester United as they weigh up a move this summer.

Camavinga, 19, is out of contract at Rennes next summer and reputedly available for €30million (£25.7m), with United understood to admire the France international.

The Manchester Evening News wrote last month Camavinga was an option for United due to their interest in the French market and the France international is a cheaper option than midfield alternatives.

Interest in Camavinga is being driven by his representatives at the Stellar Agency now he has under a year left on his Rennes deal.

Declan Rice is United's preferred target as he is Premier League proven and the 22-year-old has rejected the offer of a new West Ham contract.

West Ham could deny Rice a move this summer as he is contracted to the club until 2024. Rice approached Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw about United during England's squad get-together in March.

United have enquired about Harry Winks of Tottenham but he is strictly regarded as a back-up option. Winks, 25, is expected to receive clarification on his future now Nuno Espirito Santo has been installed as Spurs coach but has sought to leave.

Although United are seeking to enhance their midfield, they have eight players in that department, with James Garner and Andreas Pereira back from loans.

Garner, 20, is aiming for a Premier League loan next season and Pereira, 25, is free to leave permanently. Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Fred, Paul Pogba, and Bruno Fernandes were in United's core squad last term.

Camavinga has been capped four times by France but missed out on a place in their European Championship squad. Camavinga was named in the France squad for this month's Olympics in Tokyo but was then omitted from the updated list.

United are expected to turn their focus to signing a centre-back after agreeing to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. The MEN revealed the club is progressing with a deal to sign Raphael Varane and is open to recruiting another centre half.
