Manchester United and Arsenal's £50m transfer target up for grabs this summer

One of Europe's hottest young talents, Rennes hidden gem Eduardo Camavinga will be a household name in no time.

Rennes sensation Eduardo Camavinga has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Arsenal, as he looks to secure a big transfer move this summer.

The 18-year-old midfielder, who became France's youngest senior international in over a century when he took to the field to face Croatia last year, looks set to be the subject of a transfer scrum this summer, with a number of elite sides ready to do battle for his services.

Here's a rundown of where the youngster could potentially end up, as the countdown to the summer transfer window begins.

What's the story?

News broke earlier this month that Camavinga is set to reject a contract extension with his current club, and with his deal set to expire in June 2022, they'll be left with no choice but to cash in on their starlet so as to avoid losing him on a free transfer next year.

His agent, Jonathan Barnett, recently had an interview with the Athletic, where he essentially sent out a 'come and get me' please on behalf of his client.

A move to the Premier League was talked up, while Real Madrid and Barcelona were name-checked as potential destinations for the dynamic box-to-box midfielder.

Manchester United and Arsenal have both been heavily linked with Camavinga, and are said to be among the Premier League front-runners to seal the deal.

Who do the bookies think will sign him?

Interestingly, they've not even priced up Arsenal!

Real Madrid are the 4/1 favourites to seal the deal, as they prepare for a major squad overhaul this summer.

Manchester United are close second-favourites at 5/1, ahead of PSG (6/1), Barcelona (7/1) and Chelsea (9/1).

How likely are Arsenal or Man Utd to seal the deal?

Unquestionably, the Gunners needs some dynamism in their midfield - they have for some time! - and breaking the bank for Camavinga could be an excellent long-term investment.

But, as with most of the transfers they've been linked with, it all comes down to whether they win the Europa League and secure Champions League football for next season.

While the allure of playing football in London continues to attract quality players to the capital, playing for a mid-table side won't be a viable option for a player of his calibre.

The Red Devils' decision to keep the faith with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been richly rewarded, and the side look set to secure a comfortable top-four finish.

They could do with an injection of charisma in the midfield, and you'd expect them to spend a bit of money this summer to bridge the gap with local rivals and Premier League champions in waiting Manchester City.

Reports last summer suggested that United had been priced out of a move for the teenager, and a sale or two may be required to justify the expenditure - just look how long it took them to sign Bruno Fernandes.
