Stade Rennais president confirms €40m midfielder contacts amid Milan, Man Utd links

By Oliver Fisher -

Stade Rennais president Olivier Letang has confirmed that there have been contacts regarding their prized young midfielder Eduardo Camavinga amid links with Milan.

Back in September, il Corriere dello Sport (via Calciomercato.it) reported that Milan had sent a scout to watch Camavinga in a game between Brest and Rennes, while Calciomercato.com claimed last month that Milan are ‘always getting excellent reports’ on the teenager.

It is believed though that Milan face strong competition from Manchester United to sign the midfielder, who has played in every Ligue 1 game this season for his club despite only just turning 17 recently.

According to a report from Calciomercato.com, Milan ‘do not miss a game’ that the promising teenager plays, but they face ‘fierce competition from United’.

Now, the president of the French side – Olivier Letang – has lifted the lid on speculation surrounding Camavinga, considering clubs have initiated contact.

“If it were for me, I would keep Camavinga for another 10 years!” he said.

“There have been contacts, there is a market that calls and the wishes of the player to be taken into consideration. We will meet later to talk about it, probably at the end of the season.”

Mundo Deportivo claimed last month that Stade Rennais have slapped a €40m price tag on the France U21 international amid links with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
