Paper Talk: Man Utd learn asking price for Ligue 1’s next big superstar

Date published: Monday 25th November 2019 8:24

Manchester United have been told the eye-watering cost to sign a French wonderkid in January, while Liverpool and Arsenal are both keen to sign a Wolves youngster on a cut-price fee, according to Monday’s newspapers.



Rennes have stuck a huge asking price on their teenage sensation Eduardo Camavinga, according to reports on Monday.

The 17-year-old wonderkid has taken Ligue 1 by storm this season and has drawn favourable comparisons with Paul Pogba, leading to speculation that Barcelona and Manchester United are planning an approach to sign him.

And amid claims United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had Camavinga watched on a number of occasions ahead of a possible January approach, The Sun claims Rennes have slapped a €60m (£51.5m) asking price on his head in a bid to ward off potential suitors.

And while the teenager is expected to get better with experience, the fee seems incredibly steep given he’s only just making his first steps in the game.

Standing at 6ft tall and with a powerful frame, Camavinga has played 17 times so far this season and was named Ligue 1’s Player of the Month back in August.
