Manchester United have joined Arsenal and Real Madrid in the race to sign Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga this summer, The Mail reports.
The 18-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young midfielders in Ligue 1, and he has recently been linked with Arsenal and Madrid.
The Gunners have reportedly identified him as one of their priority targets, but United have now joined in pursuit of the Frenchman.
The Red Devils missed the signing of teenage midfielder Jude Bellingham last summer as he moved to Borussia Dortmund.
The Mancunian giants see Camavinga as an alternative and are ready to compete for his signing amid his contractual stalemate.
The club are currently focused on securing the deal for Jadon Sancho, and will then step up efforts to sign the France international.
View of the sports goal:
Camavinga had a great 2019/2020 campaign for Rennes, where he impressed playing in the defensive midfielder.
He played in a more central position last season and fought for consistency, which is justifiable given his age.
Rennes value Camavinga at € 100m, but they are unlikely to receive the sum with his deal expiring in 12 months.
They may be forced to accept a broken price. He is valued at € 55million by Transfermarkt which could be fair value for his potential.
United are full of defensive midfielder options. They have Scott McTominay, Fred, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and James Garner.
Garner looks set to be on loan again as Pogba’s future is uncertain, with his contract expiring in June of next year.
Matic could also be phased out in the near future. Camavinga could be tempted to join United if he is assured of regular playing time.
United, Arsenal and Madrid could still miss out on his services with reports suggesting he prefers to stay in Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain.
