Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly still interested in securing the services of Rennes midfield star Eduardo Camavinga in the summer.

The France international’s name dominated the transfer rumours last year on the back of an stunning breakthrough season in the French top-tier.

Camavinga was also touted as a target for PSG and Real Madrid, however, a move ultimately failed to materialise and he stays a Rennes player.

However, Spanish outlet AS claims that there could be multiple offers for the 18-year-old midfielder at the end of the current campaign.

La Liga giants Real Madrid are believed to the favourites to sign Camavinga as things stand, however, that will change should fellow Frenchman Zinedine Zidane to lose his job as head coach in the coming weeks if  his side fail to eliminate Liverpool in the Champions League.

That could pave the way for a three-way battle for the starlets services between Chelsea, Man Utd and PSG it is claimed, with each side able to match Rennes’ asking £62m price will managed to lure him away from Roazhon Park.

Camavinga has played 32 games for Rennes in Ligue 1 and the Champions League this campaign, while also earning three caps for Les Blues.
