Eduardo Camavinga Reims v Rennes April 2021

The agent of Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has revealed that he has received several strong transfer offers for his client.

The 18-year-old has already cemented his status as one of his generation’s most exciting talents. Alongside the likes of Erling Haaland and Phil Foden, the midfielder is well-placed to enjoy a stellar career. But his development in the near future will prove key in determining his pathway to further stardom.

While he has become a cornerstone at Rennes after making his debut at the age of 16, he will know that bigger clubs will offer greater chances at winning silverware.

Luckily for him, talk of his next move is already rife, with Manchester United and Arsenal both reportedly keen.

AS has claimed that United are watching the teenager as a potential target if Paul Pogba leaves. The Gunners, meanwhile, have already reportedly done work on Camavinga’s transfer.

According to the player’s agent, reports of contact with his client are true. However, he stressed that Camavinga could yet stay in France for another season.

“Believe me we have a lot of offers for this year, a lot of offers, and good ones,” Jonathan Barnett told SNTV (via Goal).

“I mean top, top clubs. We don’t want to rush. There is the right time to move on and playing games is the most important thing at his age.

“Playing in a good club is nice for him. It might be this year, or he wants to have another year. He has got to talk to his family, his father. We will all sit down and decide. We will talk to Rennes as well and decide. There is no rush for him.”

As previously mentioned, Camavinga is one of several young talents making names for themselves across Europe.

The midfielder has played 80 times for Rennes and has four France Under-21 caps to his name. But amid a host of stars vying for the mantle of the best young player in the world, Barnett insists that his client takes the prize.

Eduardo Camavinga TEAMtalk

“He’s probably the best young player in the world,” the intermediary said. “He has just turned 18. He has already been a French international.

“He’s an unbelievable talent. He could play in any team in the world. He is still going to be a great talent at 19. It’s not that old you know, 19.”

Reports (via the Daily Mail) report that Paris Saint-Germain have also registered interest in Camavinga.
