Chelsea in talks with Eduardo Camavinga’s agent after incredulous Rennes ‘laugh’ at Man Utd’s proposed £26m transfer bid

CHELSEA have reportedly joined Manchester United in the race to prise French starlet Eduardo Camavinga away from Rennes.

With the midfielder having just one year left on his deal at Roazhon Park, the Ligue 1 side are expected to cash in on the 18-year-old.

The Red Devils are understood to be eyeing up an offer for the Les Bleus international, with transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claiming he could be available for as little as £26million.

It has been stated that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were making progress in their quest to lure the teenager to Old Trafford.

But according to Get French Football News, the player’s priority is to join Paris Saint-Germain, though they are yet to make a formal bid.

They also state that Thomas Tuchel is pushing for a move, with the Blues in talks with Camavinga’s agent Jonathan Barnett.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to splash the cash this summer following the club’s second Champions League crown.

Real Madrid are also said to be in negotiations with Barnett as Carlo Ancelotti looks to provide competition for Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.

Meanwhile GFFN have revealed that the reported £26m price tag for Camavinga is far from the truth.

A source told the news outlet that they would laugh should United or any other club offered that sum for Camavinga, with the bid to be instantly turned down.

Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Camavinga, with Mikel Arteta claimed to have made him his top target.

And the Gunners were given a boost in their hopes of securing his services after Barnett declared the player would be willing to join a team not competing in a European tournament.

He said: “Believe me we have a lot of offers for this year, a lot of offers, and good ones. I mean top, top clubs.

“He is good enough [to play for a Champions League club]. But we don’t want to rush anybody. I am an old man and I’ve learnt a lot of lessons in football as well.

“There is the right time to move on and playing games is the most important thing at his age. Playing in a good club is nice and learning for him.”
