Manchester United is making progress in their talks with French youngster Eduardo Camavinga.
Camavinga is one of the players who have been linked with United as they look for a long-term replacement for Nemanja Matic who is said to be on his way to Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma.
Camavinga’s contract with Rennes is ending next summer and the club wants to cash in one of their most prized asset instead of letting him leave for free with the player refusing to ink a new deal with the French side.
Despite being just 18, the player has established himself as a regular starter and played in the Champions League, and picked up three caps for the French national team.
Some have seen him as the perfect replacement for fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba who is being linked with a move away from Old Trafford and United is ready to bring him on board as his side just needs a fee of around €30m to let him free.
Apart from United, PSG is the other team said to be interested in the player.

Rennes would be open to negotiate on potential €30m fee – as they’d lose Camavinga for free next summer. 🇫🇷
He’s one of Man Utd long term targets – PSG have always been interested too.
