Rennes “open” to letting Camavinga leave club amid Man United interest

Rennes are reportedly open to the idea of letting wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga leave the club after much speculation over his future.

The 18-year-old sensation has been viewed as a potential top target for a parade of elite European teams in the last twelve months and beyond but thus far, Rennes have stood firm and kept hold of their man – although that may not be the case for too much longer.

The Camavinga pursuit continues

It’s been well documented that Manchester United are leading the charge in the race to acquire his signature and with the summer transfer window now being in full flow, the time to strike is here for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It’s just a case of pulling the trigger at the right moment with the right offer, but as per Rennes president Nicolas Holveck, the proposal of Camavinga leaving is very much on the table.

“One of the priorities is to reduce the squad,” Holveck told French radio station RMC. “We still have eight or nine players who need to leave. There also remains the situation with Eduardo.

“Discussions are still ongoing, everything is open, either for a departure during this transfer window — if an offer satisfies everyone — or to extend [Camavinga’s deal]

“He won’t leave for cheap, we’ve had a lot of discussions but nothing is complete one way or another.”

The transfer market is booming right now with the overwhelming expectation being that the trend of big money being spent will continue. Some feel as if United will choose to prioritise Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane as their primary signings, but others are backing Solskjaer to really go for it with several big moves to get the Red Devils back to a point where they can be seen as title contenders.

Their new Premier League campaign begins on August 14 when they host rivals Leeds United at Old Trafford.
