Man Utd ready for ‘auction’ as midfield target’s price tag drops by €30m

Eduardo Camavinga TEAMtalk

Manchester United target Eduardo Camavinga has seen his asking price cut to €50m, according to reports.

Camavinga is one of the most sought after young players in Europe, having burst onto the scene with Rennes at the age of 16. He has been a regular ever since.

Having only recently turned 18, Camavinga remains a big prospect – and is attracting a number of suitors. Man Utd are among the interested parties.

Despite his potential, he has not shown his best qualities towards the start of this season. However, he is currently planning to sign up with a new agent, which could put him on the market.

According to AS, these factors point to a potential transfer for the teenager. Furthermore, Rennes are now open to receiving a lower fee for him; rather than the €80m they originally demanded, they could now accept bids in the region of €50m – although they could spark an auction.

There are now two battles for his signature – between the agents who want to represent him, and the clubs who want to sign him.

There are four of the latter category, of which United are one. The club have placed importance on signing young players over the past few years, and Camavinga would be another interesting one for the future.

European trio in for Camavinga

However, United face competition from three European champions. Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid are all also keeping tabs on the situation.

It is Real Madrid’s interest that AS cover in most detail, with Zinedine Zidane a fan of his compatriot. Camavinga’s current agent, while still working for the player, has been in contact with the side from the Spanish capital.

However, Madrid are focusing their attention on a bid for Kylian Mbappe next summer, so may not be able to afford Camavinga as well.
