Eduardo Camavinga is set to reject contract talks with Stade Rennais, as per reports.
🚨 Eduardo Camavinga will not be signing new Rennes contract. Interest from top clubs but undecided if he exits this summer or as free agent in 2022. #staderennais want lucrative deal but would likely add high release clause so not happening @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/Gt0bYlG0Gi

Manchester United and Real Madrid are reportedly vying for his signature this summer. If Rennes fail to extend Camavinga’s contract beyond 2022, they might be forced into a sale.
The teenage sensation broke out last season in Ligue 1. He took to Rennes midfield with plenty of guile and determination, earning 3 caps for France as well. His agent Jonathan Barnett revealed in February that his client is valued at £44m right now.
No doubt a player of his calibre could go for a lot higher in the ideal conditions. Real Madrid has him pegged as a replacement for any one of their senior midfielders. Camavinga is skilled, dexterous at both ends and can fill in at different roles.
