Rennes wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga looks destined for an ‘inevitable’ transfer this summer, amid interest from both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, although ‘no offers’ have been placed as yet.
The France international has emerged as one of Europe’s hottest prospects having been a key player for the French side in recent seasons, making his Ligue 1 debut as a 16-year-old back in April 2019.
Still just 18, the midfielder already has Champions League experience under his belt, while he’s also featured three times at senior level for his country, albeit without earning an inclusion in Didier Deschamps Euro 2020 squad.
While his current club are reluctant to allow him to leave, with just one year remaining on his current deal, they could be set to cash in this summer in order to recoup a hefty transfer fee.
As per French outlet Le Parisien, the Ligue 1 side have so far received ‘no offers’, but say his departure from the club is ‘inevitable’.
The report suggests that contract talks have stalled between the club and Camavinga, heightening the possibility that they will try to sell him over the coming months, rather than see such a highly coveted asset depart for nothing next year.
Despite the seeming inevitability of a move, the youngster has returned to training with the club, as they await offers from potential interested parties across Europe.

One possible destination could be the Parc des Princes, with the player previously rumoured to be keen on remaining in his homeland to join PSG.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have already been busy this summer with Gini Wijnaldum’s move on a free transfer already confirmed, while both Gianluigi Donnarumma and Sergio Ramos are also rumoured to be nearing a move, as well as Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakimi.
Manchester United are also said to be keeping tabs on the Rennes star, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his midfield options, particularly with Paul Pogba’s future still up the air.
The World Cup winner has just a year left on his current deal and has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid as well as a return to Juventus.
United have already been active this summer after confirming the signing of former youth team player Tom Heaton this week, while Borussia Dortmund man Jadon Sancho is also nearing a move to Old Trafford, after the Red Devils announced they have reached an agreement over a £73m deal for the 21-year-old.
