Eduardo Camavinga look set for Rennes stay amidst Manchester United interest

According to RTL (h/t Express), Rennes president Nicolas Holvec is keen to keep Eduardo Camavinga at the club for next season.

The 17-year-old is having a breakout season and has made 36 appearances in all competitions for the Roazhon Park outfit. So far, he has scored one goal and two assists. (h/t Transfermarkt)

He played a key role as the French side finished third in the French Ligue 1. This will see them compete in the UEFA Champions League qualifying round as they aim to make the lucrative competition.

The fact is not lost on Holvec, who believes qualifying for the Champions League will aid them in their efforts of keeping him.

“The plan for Eduardo Camavinga is for him to carry on with his progression here at Rennes”

Rennes expect around £60million for Camavinga. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, interested clubs were hopeful a deal closer to £25million.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add the youngster to our squad. He sees him as an excellent foil for January signing Burno Fernandes.

In spite of his progress, manager Julien Stephan believes the youngster should stay put at the French club for at least one more season.

Jude Bellingham
United are very interested in the world’s best young talents

United are not the only team keen on Camavinga. Spanish giants Real Madrid too have been keen on signing the young midfielder.

According to the report, Zinedine Zidane believes Camavinga could be the long-term replacement for Casemiro. The Brazilian is 28 and still has a number of years left in him.

Camavinga’s contract at Rennes runs till 2022.

United have in recent windows targeted a number of the best young talents in the world. Vamavings surely fits that bill.

At 17, it is difficult to see him start for us at this point in time. Loaning him back to Rennes for a season is an option. Such a scenario will be a win-win for all parties involved.
