Man Utd and Arsenal blow with Eduardo Camavinga ‘set to stay at Rennes before Real Madrid or Barcelona free transfer'
EDUARDO CAMAVINGA is set to snub Premier League interest in favour of LaLiga, according to reports.
The Rennes wonderkid has drawn admiration from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
But according to The Telegraph, Camavinga has his 'heart set' on a move to Spain.
Neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona are well placed to make a bid for the 18-year-old, given their financial woes.
But both are expected to be better placed next summer – when Camavinga's contract at Rennes expires.
Man United have been asked to be kept in the loop regarding the midfielder's transfer status this summer.
But the Red Devils have other priorities – like 'cautiously' negotiating a transfer for Raphael Varane.
Paris Saint-Germain are on a spending spree this summer, having already acquired Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and most recently Gianluigi Donnarumma.
But their interest in Camavinga may be thwarted by the player's desire to switch to Spain instead.
Should a team want to try and convince him otherwise, Rennes will reportedly entertain offers of around £25.5m.

In addition to Varane and Camavinga, Man United are also interested in signing Kieran Trippier this summer.
The Atletico Madrid full-back, 30, often played alongside Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw for England this summer, and wants to move to Old Trafford to be closer to his Bury home.
But the Spanish side are said to be holding out for £30m for the former Tottenham defender.
