Manchester United is interested in signing Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes. The Sporting Director of Rennes Florian Maurice has hinted at a sale of the player. Currently, Eduardo Camavinga has one year left on his contract.
While speaking to France Bleu, Florian Maurice stated
“It is a very difficult transfer market and his future could depend on the movements of other clubs. Either we will extend it [his contract] or we look for a solution to sell him.”
“Letting him go for free after we have raised him, is not good for anyone. He can choose between saying ‘I want to go’ and ‘I want to stay. I know what he wants to do, but then we have to find a solution that satisfies all parties.“
Eduardo Camavinga is currently 18 years old. His preferred positions on the pitch are as a Central-Defensive-Midfielder or a Central-Midfielder. Last season he started 28 games for the club having a passing accuracy of 89%. His average positions on the pitch are in zones 13,15,11, 9, and 7. This shows that the player isn’t scared to carry the ball forward and play an attacking role. Currently, he is valued at £49.50m according to Transfermarkt. The reason for this evaluation could be due to his age and the length left on his current contract. Having 0.6 key passes per 90 shows that when needed he can also pass forward.
Why are Manchester United So Keen On Signing Eduardo Camavinga?
Last Season Manchester United played in a 4-2-3-1. With this structure, they played with a midfield block. Due to this, the main creativity was forced on the wide side of the pitch. Eduardo can play in the midfield two and help to restore creative balance for Manchester United. While doing so he can also make the midfield more compact. His main strengths are as follows
- Concentration on his positioning
- Get fouled a lot
- Ball control
- Long ball
Last season he made 2.8 successful tackles per 90 which places him in the top 96% of midfielders for that stat. He also completed 1.98 dribbles from the midfield. With the signing of Varane and Sancho this season, Manchester United will need to sign another player in the midfield. If Eduardo Camavinga signs for Manchester United this season, the club should be expecting to win a title or trophy.
