Manchester United move forward to secure £34.3m signing – contact has been made
Manchester United are looking for a midfielder this summer and need to sign one before transfer time expires.
The name Eduardo Camavinga is once again remembered by the lime tree. According to the latest media reports, Man United have moved forward to secure the signing of the Frenchman.
Last month, Fabrizio Romano announced that the Red Devils had contacted people close to the player to sign his signature. According to Duncan Caltes, Old Trafferd’s outfit has stepped up efforts to lure stars away from Rennes. The famous journalist said on a podcast on the transfer window:
“United are looking for someone else [to Atlético star Saul Niges]. I was told they have increased their interest in Eduardo Camavinga over the past week.
Camavinga is an energetic player who likes to interrupt the game, deal with it and be comfortable. He rose to prominence last season after showing the best results in Ligue 1. In September, he was selected by Deschamps to play for France and scored an acrobatic goal on his debut.
However, his performances in the second half of the season were average, and therefore he did not take part in the European Championship for Les Bleus. His current contract with Rennes expires in less than 10 months and he (L’Equipe) is valued at around 40 million euros (34.3 million pounds).
As for this season, the 18-year-old has started just once in Liga 1 (first leg) and has only played 14 minutes in the last two league games. Because the future is uncertain, he sits on the bench more (Ouest France).
You United need good players who can disrupt play and pull the strings in the middle of the pitch. Do you think they should offer £34.3m to sign Eduardo Camavinga?
