Man United is likely considering a high-priced deal for Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
Since hiring Erik ten Hag last year and winning the EFL Cup to end their trophy drought, United have been reborn on all fronts.
The Red Devils are planning to return to the Champions League and also hope to win the FA Cup and the Europa League after losing 7-0 to rival Liverpool last weekend.
The team still intends to bring in players during the summer transfer window, particularly in central midfield where depth is reportedly lacking.
Scott McTominay and Marcel Sabitzer’s futures at Old Trafford are less certain than those of Casemiro, Fred, and Christian Eriksen.
Man United may sell McTominay later in 2023 summer, as contrast to Sabitzer, who is on loan from Bayern Munich and does not have a buy option for United.
Instead, according to Fichajes, United is ready to make an offer for Camavinga ahead of the 2023-24 season.
The Premier League heavyweights are reportedly willing to spend €130 million (£115.67 million) to persuade Los Blancos to trade one of their young players.
Man United to plan a bid for Madrid’s Midfielder
The 20-year-old is reportedly not for sale by Real Madrid, who sees him as a long-term alternative for players like Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.
Camavinga has made slightly more appearances from the substitutes’ bench than he has from the starting lineup since signing from Rennes in August 2021, with 40 of his 79 appearances coming as a substitution.
The ratio has been the same throughout 2022–2023, however Carlo Ancelotti has occasionally asked Camavinga to fill in at left-back.
Camavinga’s flexibility, along with the fact that he has a contract until 2027, is likely to cause Real authorities to reject any interest in signing him.
The Spanish team reportedly has plans for the English Boy and Camavinga to play together in the future, despite Jude Bellingham being linked with a transfer to Real Madrid.
