Manchester United wants to sign French Eduardo Camavinga. As the biggest competitor, Paris Saint-Germain, is now concentrating its firepower with the intention of signing Lionel Messi for free. The Red Devils may get the 18-year-old Rennes talent without a rival.
Eduardo Camavinga is the leading French player of the young generation and has been compared to Pogba in addition to being hailed as the heir of N’Golo Kante.
The clubs vying for Eduardo Camavinga
Clubs vying for Camavinga include Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid. Real Madrid, during Zinedine Zidane’s reign, saw Camavinga as a talented player who should be brought in more than Pogba. However, due to financial problems, the Galacticos are now out of the running.
Camavinga would have preferred to join La Liga, and if he couldn’t land at the Bernabeu, his first choice would have been to stay in Ligue 1. Paris Saint-Germain would have been the best option for him.
However, with Messi’s contract extension with Barcelona failing, Paris targeted Messi and offered him a two-year contract worth £70 million.
Therefore, United wants to take advantage of the gap between Paris and Messi to sign Camavinga as soon as possible.
Camavinga’s agent Jonathan Barnett Barnett also has a close relationship with United and is currently in talks to sign him.
Rennes also intend to sell Camavinga
It is also in Rennes’ interest to sell Camavinga this summer. He has only the last year left of his whose contract, and if he cannot be sold, he could be on a free transfer next year.
Moreover, Rennes did not want to sell Camavinga to domestic rival Big Paris, and United had every chance to achieve their aim.
Even if Paris Saint-Germain is busy bringing in Lionel Messi, Rennes will not sell Camavinga at a low price.The previous psychological price of Manchester United was £35 million, while the German transfer market website valued him at €55 million, which is equivalent to about £47 million.
If United choose to bring in Camavinga, the planned deal to sign England international Trippier from Atletico Madrid, will be put on hold. United will have to buy at most one more person, Camavinga and Trippier, only one of the two.
