Manchester United have registered interest in Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, according to reports. The 18-year-old is set to be in demand this summer with several of Europe’s elite clubs queuing to secure his signature.
Camavinga, who turns 19 later this year, has emerged as one of Europe’s best talents and amid links to Old Trafford, further details over any potential move have surfaced.
Florian Maurice, Rennes sporting director, denied suggestions that Manchester United had made an official offer for the midfielder but opened the door on a sale of Camavinga.
And according to CaughtOffisde, the French club have set a £40m price tag on their prized asset, despite the player having just 12 months remaining on his contract.
In addition to the high transfer sum, it is also reported that any potential buyer will have to reimburse Camavinga’s agency, ICM Stellar Sports, for their £3m commitment payment they made to the 18-year-old’s family.
The £3m payment was, according to CaughtOffside, paid to Camavinga’s family ‘for the privilege of representing’ the teenager and the agency are now looking to recoup the money.
The added payment could prove to complicate matters for any suitor, with high agent fees already the reason for the collapse of some transfers.
