Man United given greenlight to sign Rennes Star ‘as meeting set to hold in next week’ with new details emerge

Published

Manchester United will hold a meeting about signing Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga next week, it has been claimed.

The teenager is one of world football’s hottest properties. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now keen to snap up the France international.

Manchester United are nearing a deal to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, with the 21-year-old close to touching down at Old Trafford.

And Camavinga could be next, with news of the Red Devils’ interest breaking this morning.

United want another midfielder amid uncertainty over the future of Donny van de Beek, who has been linked with Inter Milan, Arsenal and Barcelona.

And RMC Sport journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi has claimed the Red Devils will talk with the Camavinga’s camp next week as they look to bring him to the Premier League.

However, while that’s the case, PSG are supposedly his preferred destination.

“Manchester United has officially expressed interest in #Camavinga,” he said on Twitter.

“Man #United will even meet his entourage next week to convince him to join United.

“PSG remains the priority of the player. He would like to stay in France. Free in June 2022.”

United could also lose Paul Pogba this summer, with the 2018 World Cup winner being eyed by both PSG and Juventus.

Yet they seem to want Camavinga regardless and, if they’re successful at snapping him up, could pair him alongside Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the heart of Solskjaer’s midfield.

The 18-year-old has spent the last two years in the Rennes first team, making him incredibly mature for his age.

And with Solskjaer looking to bring the best young players to Old Trafford, the France international would certainly fit the bill.

Camavinga failed to make France’s squad for Euro 2020 and, speaking in May, Didier Deschamps opened up on the player’s recent struggles for form.

“He has had a complicated, very complicated time, for different reasons, certainly,” he said.

“After what he was able to show with us when he came, well yes, that can happen… He is a young player, (what he showed with us) did not translate into performances with his club, for various reasons.

“If you look, even with the U21s last March, he started the first game, but didn’t start the next two.

“His potential and what he is capable of, what he has done with us, and what he has done since, obviously there’s a big difference.

“Potentially, he’s not supposed to drift from the scene either, after that it is up to him to look at the various elements to see what made his performances less strong.”

As well as Camavinga, United are eyeing Kieran Trippier.

And the midfielder’s compatriot, Raphael Varane, is also in the club’s sights as they look to win the Premier League title next time out.

Nicky Butt feels Varane would be a good signing for the Red Devils, recently telling Ladbrokes: “For me, next season has to be about getting some silverware back in that trophy cabinet for Manchester United.

“It’s about getting the right players who will allow you to challenge for trophies.

“It’s a winning club, so we can’t go this long without silverware.

“The biggest thing that needs addressing for me at Manchester United this summer is that centre-back position; we need a partner for Harry Maguire.

“It has to be someone that’s going to be compatible with Maguire.

“If you spend the kind of money you did on Harry Maguire, you then have to follow it up by bringing someone in who can play with him.

“He’s the club captain; Victor Lindelof is too similar to him. It needs to be someone with pure, blistering pace, someone who can play out from the back.

“Everyone talks about Raphael Varane. I understand he’s a little bit older than most people would perhaps like, but you just have to go back to the days of Teddy Sheringham.

“I think we bought him when he was 32, and we went and won the treble with him. If Varane is available, then I’d go all out for him.”

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.

Bellingham plays alongside plenty of Chelsea stars on the international stage with England, so let’s hope they can put in a good word to try tempt him to the Bridge.

He’s an all – action central midfielder that offers so much both offensively and defensively.
