Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain could both move in the race to sign Eduardo Camavinga this summer in the transfer window, according to trusted football journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The 18-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from Rennes this summer, especially considering that the club will risk losing him for free if he decides to wait out the remainder of his contract.
According to Fabrizio, Camavinga has decided not to sign a new extension with Rennes, which means that he could leave the club on a free transfer next summer.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Romano said: “Keep an eye on this one – Eduardo Camavinga, the midfielder of Rennes, because he has decided, as I said many weeks ago, to not extend his contract.
“He’s leaving the club next summer as a free agent or in the coming seven days with a permanent move. There are huge chances for Camavinga to leave Rennes this summer. He’s going to wait for some proposals.
“Rennes want around €30-35m for Camavinga, so it’s an opportunity for many clubs. But from what I’ve been told, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are the two clubs interested in the situation.
“There is still no official bid from United or PSG, so let’s see what happens in the coming hours – but both clubs have contacts with the agents of Camavinga and with Rennes to understand about the situation.
“Manchester United are waiting to see what happens with the outgoings and Paris Saint-Germain, too. For both clubs, it’s really important to understand what players will leave the club in the coming days to know if they can bid for Camavinga.
“Camavinga will be prepared to leave Rennes this summer in the coming few days. Manchester United have to decide on Jesse Lingard and maybe Donny van De Beek – many situations to decide for Manchester United about the outgoings.”
