Chelsea join Man Utd in Eduardo Camavinga transfer race with Rennes wonderkid, 18, also eyed by Real Madrid

CHELSEA have reportedly joined the race for Rennes wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga.

Spanish outlet Diario AS claim the Blues are set to rival Manchester United and Real Madrid for the French youngster.

Camavinga has emerged as one of the hottest properties in Europe since his debut for Rennes in 2018 aged just 16.

But with his contract set to expire in June 2022, the Ligue 1 club could be under pressure to sell if the youngster does not agree a new deal.

SunSport previously reported that United were eying a move for Camavinga as a potential long-term replacement for Paul Pogba.

With his eyes set on a move, the 18-year-old has employed Gareth Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett to help secure a dream transfer.

And he reckoned the midfield prodigy will cost more than £43million with Madrid still thought to be leading the race.

He told Goal: "At the moment, he's a Rennes player. 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."
