Eduardo Camavinga is back on Manchester United’s radar this summer.
The Athletic claim United could get him before the end of the window but there is competition from Paris Saint-Germain.
He could choose to end the final year of his Rennes deal and go for free in 2022.
But they also claim United’s interest extends well beyond this summer.

They report that United wanted Camavinga back for the first time in the summer of 2019.
That was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first summer as head of United.
In the end, United decided to sign Hannibal Mejbri, another young midfielder who is expected to do great things.
Hannibal has tremendous skills so you can’t say United did the wrong thing, but the Tunisian international didn’t make his senior debut until May.
Camavinga, on the other hand, who first appeared in April 2019 at the age of 16, has been playing regular Ligue 1 football for two seasons. Hannibal was probably cheaper then.
Playing for Rennes has done Camavinga well in the short term and has come to the point that he would expect to help United first team here and now when he arrives.
Every player’s development is different, but Mejbri remains one with potential, while Camavinga already has a lot more experience in the first team.

Will United sign Camavinga this summer?
The report alleges that Paul Pogba may have had an impact on United’s persecution of Camavinga.
PSG are apparently interested in him too. So if he moves to the French capital, United might have a freer run in Camavinga.
Of course, they would also have the money to spend on the midfielder.
This could be the situation with two midfielders entering the final year of their contracts, but it is far from the only one.
If United gets their man – and they may have to wait another year – it will be a long time and the club’s duty of care, which the midfielder has clearly done, would only increase his chances of success at Old Trafford.
