Manchester United have already sealed deals for Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and goalkeeper Tom Heaton this summer.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that no deal is expected again this summer, and any incoming player will be a bonus.

However, Eduardo Camavinga has long been touted as a possible target for Manchester United, and Solskjaer will be keen on signing the 18-year-old midfielder if the opportunity arises.

The talented midfielder’s current contract with Rennes is due to expire at the end of next season, and according to reputable Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano, the teenager is not in a rush to resolve his future this summer. He also reported that Manchester United have made contact with the young midfielder ahead of a move.

Speaking on the Here We Go podcast earlier this week, Romano said: “Manchester United have direct contact with Camavinga but the player is not in a rush.

“The player is also open to wait for January to sign a contract as a free agent with a new club.

“Many clubs would be interested next year, like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, maybe Bayern Munich, PSG and some English clubs.

“Manchester United know if they want to sign Camavinga [this summer], it’ll be easier because next season will be a completely different race.

“The situation is open. They’ll be in the race next year.”
