One of the most exciting youngsters in world football, Eduardo Camavinga, understandably has plenty of suitors, including Manchester United.
The young Frenchman has been linked with a number of European superpowers in recent years and now United are rumoured to be considering a move with AS reporting that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an admirer of the midfielder.
He could become the Red Devils’ modern-day Roy Keane should he arrive at Old Trafford.
Since breaking through with Stade Rennais, Camavinga has earned plenty of praise for his all-action midfield displays.
The 18-year-old has already made 75 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit in all competitions, finding himself on the scoresheet just twice.
However, it is more in the defensive side of the game where the youngster thrives.
According to WhoScored, Camavinga has averaged 2.6 tackles per game in all competitions this season – with only right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka accumulating more in the Red Devils’ squad throughout 2020/21.
It is that determination to win the ball and anticipation of danger that could see him play a similar role to Man United legend Roy Keane when deployed in midfield at Old Trafford.
Camavinga’s displays have certainly not gone unnoticed either. Having already made three appearances for national side France – and scored his first goal for his country in October 2020 – he was labelled as a “huge talent” by Les Bleus boss Didier Deschamps.
It is certainly tough to argue with that assessment with Camavinga already rated at £54m despite his tender years.
Despite that fee being certainly worth it for his signature, the fact that he is out of contract with his current employers next summer could see his asking price be lowered considerably.
Faced with considerable competition for his signature from UEFA Champions League clubs, Manchester United must ensure that they are the ones to sign Camavinga and in the process secure one of the most exciting young players in world football.
