Rumours around Eduardo Camavinga have gone relatively quiet in recent months.

Last year saw endless claims of interest coming from clubs including Manchester United and Real Madrid, with the latter reportedly seeing him as a better long term option than Paul Pogba, and the Red Devils considering him in case Pogba leaves.

This season the youngster has continued to be a fixture in Rennes’ team but he’s not getting as many minutes per match as during the previous campaign. Perhaps more of an explosion was expected by some for this season, yet it’s easy to forget the player only turned 18-years-of-age in November.

AS this week reported Camavinga continues to prioritise Real Madrid over other options, however, given Los Blancos’ difficult finances it’s highly questionable whether a move could happen this summer.

Fichajes say the current situation means ‘Manchester United seem to have the lead’ despite the player being ready to wait.

Camavinga has a contract lasting until 2022 and should he not renew then it’s conceivable Rennes would push a sale in the next window, which wouldn’t be ideal for Madrid.

Regardless of what is being claimed there’s surely a question mark over how interested Manchester United are right now, and whether they truly see Camavinga as someone who can replace Pogba.
