Manchester United are expected to make their opening offer for Eduardo Camavinga in the coming days but Chelsea have also been in contact with the player’s representatives.

The 18-year-old midfielder is regarded as one of Europe’s brightest midfield talents but with just one year left on his deal with Rennes could be on the move this summer.

United last week made their interest known and according to The Guardian, Rennes are willing to listen to offers of around €30m (£25.7m) for the young star, to save them from losing him on a free transfer in 2022.

Le Parisien report United will make an offer of that amount in the coming days, although their opening bid is unlikely to be accepted.

United are not alone in their interest in signing the France international however with the publication naming Chelsea and Real Madrid as two other clubs who have been in ‘direct contact’ with the midfielder’s agent.

Camavinga is represented by Jonathan Barnett, who includes the likes of Gareth Bale and Jack Grealish among his high-profile clients.

The French publication also reports Camavinga has informed Rennes he has no desire to extend his stay at the club.

United wrapped up a deal to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund last week and have also shifted their focus onto Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

United have reportedly made a £50m offer for the France international who is said to be favouring a move to Old Trafford.
