Eduardo Camavinga travels with Rennes for play-off despite last game claims

Eduardo Camavinga’s future with Rennes is in doubt – but it is not over yet.

Camavinga is a transfer target for Manchester United. The Athletic report the young Frenchman is the midfielder the club are most tempted by ahead of next week’s deadline.

The midfielder’s refusal to sign a new contract with Rennes puts him in a precarious position at the club. He has been on the bench for the last three matches and has just one year remaining on his deal.

French newspaper L’Equipe reported at the weekend that Camavinga told club ultras after the win over Nantes, that he has played his final match for the club.


Well, it may not quite be over just yet. Camavinga could make an appearance for Rennes this evening.

Rennes still including him

Camavinga has flown out with the rest of the Rennes squad for their Europa Conference League play-off with Rosenborg.

Ouest France report Camavinga was part of the travelling squad for the second leg match.

Rennes won the first leg in France 2-0, with Camavinga coming on as a substitute in the 89th minute.

He could yet appear in the second leg tonight, and then away against Angers on Sunday. But he may well have played his final home game.

United have options

Camavinga is not the only midfielder in the mix for United over the coming days. And there is a very real possibility the club don’t move for any.

Saul Niguez is a possible target with Atletico Madrid making him available for loan, The Times report.

Ruben Neves is also a player United fans want to see signed. ESPN reported last month that the club had been in touch with his representatives.

Camavinga’s contract situation makes him a temptation, but United are not his only option.

PSG are still tracking him, L’Equipe report, and also don’t rule out a late window move.

First, Camavinga has a match to play tonight, and another on Sunday. His future could go right down to deadline day.
