Eduardo Camavinga is being linked with some of the top clubs in Europe.
Eduardo Camavinga has been poised as one of the top emerging talents in the game. The young Frenchman is currently one of the hottest properties in Europe. At the age of jst 18 Camavinga has become a regular starter for Stade Rennais FC.
There are a lot of similarities in how Jude Bellingham and Camavinga have developed. At such a young age both players have a commanding presence in their team’s midfield. Some of the top clubs in Europe are looking to secure a deal for him.
The 18-year-old will enter the final year of his contract with the French outfit at the end of the season. According to a report from The Athletic Camavinga is likely to reject a contract extension with Stade Rennais.
Rennais are in the 7th position in the league and are not qualifying for Europe. Also, any extension would also include a hefty buy-out clause which would make a future move more difficult which is why the player feels it is the right time to leave the club.
A lot of clubs are taking an interest in Camavinga’s development. Manchester United was heavily scouting the player during the last window but there wasn’t any formal approach from the English outfit. Amid his contract situation links are again arising regarding a move to Old Trafford.
However, there isn’t much truth to the matter and it’s more of a hearsay thing. As of now, United has no formal interest in signing the youngster. The likes of PSG and Arsenal are way ahead in the race for the French midfielder.
The 18 year old is “not” a transfer target for Ole Gunner Solskjaer
Manchester United is one of the clubs that are regularly linked with young emerging players. Eduardo Camavinga too was once on the club’s radar. However, now things have changed and it seems that Ole Gunner Solskjaer no longer feels the need to acquire his services.
Camavinga plays as a central midfielder and United looks pretty content with their options in midfield right now. There is the question of finding a replacement for Nemanja Matic. Many are of the opinion that Camavinga could fit in that role however United’s boss does not share their opinion.
There are other obstacles for the move to happen. Camavinga has a price tag of £54 million, United are on the lookout for a striker and there have also been rumors of a move for Declan Rice. Among all this, the club can’t really afford to spend that much on the youngster.
According to Express, PSG are in many advanced talks with the 18-year-old. Paris does not have an established presence in their midfield apart from their Italian maestro Marco Verratti.
But Verratti too has a lot of injury problems and Camavinga could be the solution for that. The 18-year-old has 34 appearances in all competitions along with 3 France Under 21 caps. He also has 1 goal and 2 assists to his name for Rennais.
It is his defensive abilities and composure on the ball which makes him a real prospect for PSG. The player is just 18 years old and there is a lot of room for development. However, Rennais will certainly try to get the best of any approaches for their star talent.
