Manchester United have decided not to rush any deal for Eduardo Camavinga, it has been claimed. And that’s because the club are waiting to see what happens with Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek. Both players’ futures at Old Trafford are currently up in the air, with talk of potential departures gathering momentum.
News of United’s interest in Camavinga broke over the weekend.
It emerged the Red Devils were targeting the Rennes midfielder, who has just one year of his current contract left to run over in France.
News of a meeting due to take place this week also surfaced, with United keen to rival Paris Saint-Germain for the arrival of the 18-year-old.
And, now, journalist Fabrizio Romano has delivered an update.
Speaking to The United Stand’s YouTube channel, he claimed that there was ‘nothing advanced’ when it came to the midfielder.
It’s stated that Camavinga himself is in no hurry to find a new club and, as things stand, it’s an ‘open race’ between many top teams in Europe.

Furthermore, United aren’t in a rush to recruit the youngster because they’re waiting to see what will happen with both Pogba and Van de Beek.
Pogba sparkled for France against Switzerland on Monday night – but couldn’t prevent his side from exiting the competition on penalties.
Didier Deschamps’ side led 3-1 with mere minutes to go, only for Switzerland to reel them back in late on before claiming victory via a shootout.
Pogba has a year left on his current United contract left to run, with talks over a renewal currently taking place.
But, given the 28-year-old left the Red Devils on a free transfer back in 2012, the club can be forgiven for fearing a repeat.

Regarding Van de Beek, United secured the arrival of the Netherlands international just 12 months ago.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had been intending to pursue Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish but, in the end, saw his team priced out of a deal.
Van de Beek then signed on the dotted line from Ajax instead but endured a frustrating campaign, spending the majority of the season stuck on the bench.
That’s led to talk of a possible exit with Barcelona, Inter Milan and even Arsenal all linked.
And it appears United are relaxed over their pursuit of Camavinga while they wait to see what happens with two of their current players.

Camavinga’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, claimed in February that his client would be in demand as his Rennes contract ticks down.
“At the moment, he’s a Rennes player,” Barnett told Goal. “He likes Rennes and, at the moment, we haven´t really taken to other clubs. It isn’t our position.
“Let’s see what happens later on, but he’s doing well in Rennes and that’s fine. Being the best midfielder in the world, that’s how I see his future, [with] a lot of medals and a lot of trophies.
“[Madrid are] a great club, a great club to play for.
“Eduardo will have a choice of a lot of clubs if Rennes decides to release him. They will be one of the four of five clubs in the world he might go to.
“Eduardo would love to play for a top club. Madrid are one of those top clubs in the world, so are Barcelona.”
And, more recently, Barnett named Camavinga among the players who could be on the move this summer.
“It is going to be harder. I’m expecting three or four very big deals of my own that will break a lot of records,” Barnett told the Athletic.
“Hopefully, they’ll come about. For the smaller clubs, I think there won’t be as many transfers. We have some very good players.
“We have probably the best young player in the world in Camavinga.
“We’ve got [Jack] Grealish. We’ve got [Ibrahima] Konate at Leipzig. But then I’ve got over 100 players.”
