Blow to Man United as their latest offer for French star is responded by laughter.

France starlet Eduardo Camavinga has just 12 months waiting on his deal with Rennes and has drawn strong transfer interest from Manchester United, as well as Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

Manchester United’s aspirations of signing Eduardo Camavinga have been thwarted after Rennes laughed at their opening transfer proposal, according to reports in France.

Camavinga, 18, is considered as one of the most exciting recruits in Ligue 1 after breaking onto the scene with his boyhood club in the 2019/20 season.

The central midfielder – who made his senior France debut last year – has just 12 months remaining on his contract with Rennes.

This has provoked intense speculation over his future, with domestic opponents Paris Saint-Germain associated with Camavinga while Real Madrid and Manchester United keep tabs on the situation from further afield.

Fresh reports insinuated the Red Devils were in pole position to sign the teenage prospect, with Rennes ready to accept a €30million (£25.7m) bid.


But a fresh update has rubbished this case, as Get French Football News say they were answered with laughter from a source at Rennes when they inquired about the club taking such an offer.

The newly-appointed Rennes manager Bruno Genesio indicates a settlement must be reached concerning Camavinga sooner rather than later.

The Ligue 1 club cannot gamble losing their star for free next summer, and Genesio seemed to hint at a departure during a press conference last week.

“We have already stressed several times that we cannot afford to remain in this situation concerning an international player like him,” said the Frenchman.

“It’s part of a career to have important decisions to make, he has a very important one [decision] to make for his future, and we at the club also have our interests to defend.

“I hope we find a solution that everyone is satisfied with.”

Camavinga was omitted in France’s squad for Euro 2020 but he is anticipated to link up with the Under-23 side which will travel to the Tokyo Olympic Games later this month.

Despite his snub by senior manager Didier Deschamps, the Brittany native drew generous praise after making his first start and beginning his France account in a 7-1 friendly triumph over Ukraine last October.

“I need to manage him like [former boss] Julien Stephan is managing Eduardo at Rennes,” said Deschamps. “He will play every three days soon. He is a very young player with a lot of great skills and huge talent.

“I already selected him last month, I think he is good enough and that’s why he plays. He needs to show his skills on the pitch, even if we should not ask too much either.

“He is here. We all know the huge competition we have in the midfield but it’s not the others and him, it’s totally him among the others. I will need to make some choices.”
