Young Rennes starlet Eduardo Camavinga could leave the French club this summer, according to its president as some of Europe’s biggest teams remain on the prowl for his signature.
The 18-year-old midfielder has only one year left on his contract and it unlikely to continue with the club passed that point.
When asked about their star player’s future, Rennes President Nicolas Holveck failed to rule out the possibility of him leaving this summer.
‘One of the priorities is to reduce the squad. We have 8 or 9 players to leave,’ Holveck said.
‘Eduardo’s great file remains to be resolved. Everything remains open, either for a possible exit, or to prolong his adventure here. He will not go for nothing. We had many conversations.’
Manchester United are one of the clubs reportedly interested in Camavinga who could be available for around £25m this summer, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would face competition from some of the biggest clubs in Europe including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain
Camavinga has been capped four times by the French national team but didn’t make the squad for the recent Euro 2020 competition. He was originally named in France’s Tokyo Olympic football team, but was later omitted.
United are close to confirming a deal for England winger Jadon Sancho for a reported £72.6m, and have also been linked with a move for Real Madrid centre back Raphael Varane.
