Manchester United: Red Devils make contact for Eduardo Camavinga
Manchester United are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of highly-rated Real Madrid youngster Eduardo Camavinga this summer.
The Lowdown: Camavinga a big prospect
At just 20, the Frenchman has already become an important figure for Madrid, making a total of 80 appearances for the La Liga holders and winning the Champions League last season, breaking Liverpool hearts in the final.
Camavinga is seen as part of the long-term future at the Santiago Bernabeu, along with the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni and Federico Valverde, and his current deal expires in 2027.
Despite this, it looks as though United could be preparing to make an audacious move for the young midfielder.
The Latest: United make contact
According to Football Insider, the Red Devils have ‘registered an interest’ in signing Camavinga this summer, as Erik ten Hag looks to boost his midfield options.
Frenkie de Jong is also mentioned in the report and could be a safer bet, but United certainly seem interested in the Frenchman, given this is not the first time these rumours have surfaced.
The Verdict: Would Madrid sell?
Camavinga is a huge talent, having been hailed as ‘incredibly energetic’ by Carlo Ancelotti and ‘sensational‘ by journalist and podcaster Terry Flewers, going from strength to strength with Madrid since bursting onto the scene initially with Rennes.
The six-time capped France international already plays with a maturity beyond his years, enjoying an eye-catching 91.6% pass completion rate across 25 appearances in La Liga this season.
Camavinga’s versatility means he has also played at left-back six times in 2022/23 to date and he is generally a footballer with huge intelligence and a massive future ahead of them.
It would be a big surprise if Madrid were willing to sell him, but if United managed to snap him up, it could be a significant piece of transfer business.
