Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly been handed a boost in their pursuit of Rennes' star Eduardo Camavinga, with the club naming their asking price for the highly-rated midfielder.

Camavinga has been linked to several clubs, including United, PSG, Real Madrid, and Chelsea. And according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Camavinga will not sign a long-term contract at Rennes this summer, meaning they might be forced to part ways with him during the ongoing transfer window, rather than risk losing him for free next year.

Romano wrote on Twitter: “There are chances for Eduardo Camavinga to leave Rennes in the final 8 days of the transfers market. He’ll not sign a new long-term deal with Rennes, so they’re open to sell Camavinga for €35m fee. It depends on the offers in the next few days. Open race.”

However, according to Ouest-France, as per L'Equipe, the youngster is close to joining PSG for £25.7m.

Rennes manager Bruno Genesio confirmed the club would like to sort out his situation before the summer transfer window shuts. He said: "We have already stressed several times that we cannot afford to remain in this situation concerning an international player like him.

"It’s part of a career to have important decisions to make, he has a very important one (decision) to make for his future, and we at the club also have our interests to defend. I hope we find a solution that everyone is satisfied with."
