Man Utd consider £25.6m Ligue 1 starlet as potential Paul Pogba replacement

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Rennes teenager Eduardo Camavinga as a long-term replacement for Paul Pogba.

The future of Pogba will never look settled as long as he’s a United player. There will always be speculation over a move to Real Madrid or Juventus, and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he left in the coming summer.

This is the first mention of Camavinga and United. The 17-year-old midfielder became a regular for Rennes this season, making 16 appearances across all competitions so far.

According to The Sun, the Red Devils are interested in signing the teenager who has a buyout clause of £25.6m on his current contract with the Ligue 1 side. The report merely suggests that United consider Camavinga as a long-term replacement for Pogba.

Another report from The Sun published a few days ago stated that the France international could be on his way to the Bernabeu in an exchange deal involving Gareth Bale.

However, we think that ship sailed long ago — Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eyeing up younger attacking talent such as Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Haaland, as per the Metro.

Camavinga may be one to watch out for in Ligue 1, though if United are to replace Pogba next summer we’d be hoping for someone a little more experienced to come in straight away.
