Chelsea interested in Man United, Real Madrid target Eduardo Camavinga
The 18-year-old defensive midfielder burst onto the scenes in 2019 and enjoyed a spectacular last season with Rennes, helping them qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
However, the Ligue 1 outfit has struggled to perform at the same level this term. And following the sacking of manager Julian Stephan, who played a crucial role in Camavinga’s rise at the club, the midfielder is now considering his future at the club.
Camavinga has been on the radars of Real Madrid for quite a long time. And now, Chelsea and Manchester United have also been credited with an interest in the French international.
The Blues have a packed midfield department as things stand with N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic vying for the starting spots while Billy Gilmour provides an option from the bench.
However, of late, Jorginho has been linked with a return to Italy. In addition, Kante’s fitness troubles in recent times have shown that it wouldn’t be the worst idea to bring in a long-term replacement for the Frenchman, who could eventually take over from him in the side.
Camavinga, in that scenario, would be the perfect addition to the Chelsea ranks. However, the midfielder himself is said to prefer a transfer to Real Madrid instead.

What makes Camavinga an even more attractive prospect is that he will be entering the final year of his contract with Rennes at the end of the season. That would mean he could be available on a bargain price in the summer.
It, however, remains to be seen if Chelsea act on their reported interest in the teenage midfield sensation come summer.
